Forums - Sales Discussion - PS4 Won February NPD (PS4: 363K, XBO: 310K, NSW: 279K)

Switch sold pretty well considering the lack of big titles. If Labo is a success and if their holiday is strong enough, 20 million WW in 2018 is still very possible.

How was amazon not wrong? 

Amazon wasn't wrong. They were reporting numbers based on their sales, not making predictions for NPD. Amazon wasn't wrong, the people speculating are. 

OH come on. when we talk about amazon, we are talking about people that take there rankings as the truth, which is a lot of people.

Yes, and we had good reason to. I actually find it ironic that I complained about Nintendo fans messing up the Amazon threads and now it appears the Switch is also messing up the Amazon threads. I say that with the greatest of respect. It IS just ironic.

Amazon was not wrong, fact is that Switch is selling great on Amazon, and point that Switch is 3rd this month doesnt mean its losing momentum, Switch can still selling good despite point that XB1 or PS4 sold better. So you ignoring January sales, and point that seems that Switch is selling better in March curently compared to February and go right away on conclusion that Switch is loosing momentum!? Nothing new from you.

How was amazon not wrong? it's the most wrong it's ever been wrong in console rankings. switch was ahead by xbox and ps4, by a huge margin, and lost to both. switch sold probably around 200-230k that's a pretty weak for February, where ps4 usually does 350-400k. 

Amazon sales rankings means just that, sales on Amazon, not hole sales in America, so fact is that Switch is selling good on Amazon. You do realise that Switch can have good month despite PS4/XB1 sold better, and that one month in which Switch only Bayonetta dont means loosing momentum, right!?  

Also, person who gave us this informations, also said that "Switch hardware sales are also progressing in line with Nintendo's guidance and sales of Nintendo software, especially its own major titles, appear to be favorable".

But of course you ignored evre logical possibility and used point that Switch is 3rd this month means that Switch started loosing momentum.

switch got destroyed this month, being out sold be 30% by ps4, and losing to xbox, that looks like losing momentum to me,

No! It is falling off a cliff and losing momentum! It didn't sell well despite no big titles and no MH!

Anyway, on a serious note, sales will ramp up towards the summer when more and more titles release. Coupled with Smash releasing this is year, 20 million is within reach for sure.

XBox had some great deals and PS4 hot Monster Hunter and GoW anticipation.

  • There you go ... you just implied it again. "we are talking about people that take there rankings as the truth". Amazon's rankings are accurate... for their website. It's based on sales, on their website. It is not a speculative ranking meant to represent an entire country. And just like all data pertaining to one source of sales, it is not ever going to be representative of the entire market. Would Amazon be entirely accurate for the market if the Switch had won? Not necessarily, seeing as how the specifics like how dramatic the difference is in sales could still be exaggerated. Regardless I don't see the point in belittling people for using Amazon as a source to support speculation, it's not the best but most of the discussion on this site is based on similarly slippery slopes.

You do realise that PS4 can sold even 2x better than Switch and that Switch still dont losing momentum, right!?

Also, person who gave us this informations, also said that "Switch hardware sales are also progressing in line with Nintendo's guidance and sales of Nintendo software, especially its own major titles, appear to be favorable".

But of course you ignored evre logical possibility and used point that Switch is 3rd this month means that Switch started loosing momentum. And than ask why so many people is arguing with you.
