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

Lmao. One month where the Switch comes in 3Rd and again it's losing Momentum. If Everything is progressing in a good pace like Nintendo predicted then we don't have any reason to worry.

MHW clearly still gave ps4 a boost, xb1 had promotions and price cuts the majority of February and what did Nintendo have? I wouldn't expect a massive month when the console doesn't have the games to make that possible.

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!? 

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

Are you praying every day that the switch will lose momentum so get your time to shine?

The PS4 and Xbox had two huge releases at the end of January/ Feb being MHW/DBZ. It would be a shock they didn’t win.

esp Xbox which just had a hardware revision plus constant price cut.

Will you crawl back to your cave If the switch win March due to Kirby? Because it will. Bookmark this.

I mean yeah, one month Switch is not first, and that means that Switch started loosing momentum for some people. :D

3rd place doesn't' mean nothing to me, like i said before, if switch was in 3rd place and one got out sold by 9% then i would say anything, it got out sold by 30% by ps4, it got destroyed.



I hope that this will be the hierarchy for a while, though I don't expect XBO to hold over NSW too long.

Wtf how did switch not come out on top? switch was dominating during February on amazon. I will not predict npd base on amazon anymore and so should nintendo fans as well.

Actually, many people  here did predict the Switch to come out on top, including me, so it being a shock if they didn't win is just not true.

At least for a while, I agree, but it may at some point become more representative. It is still accurately predicting the PS4 and XB1 positions though. 



 

The PS5 Exists.

No one is denting that it got destroyed this month but to say it's losing Momentum is a bit shortsighted. Come back in 6 months and if during that 6 months the switch is 3Rd place every month or worse then you can say it's losing Momentum.
