XBox One is starting to find some traction in non-holiday months ... the XBox One X has been a large boost for them, think mid-gen hardware refreshes are basically going to become the norm now.

I don’t get this logic. 2017 has been terrible for X1. After the Scorpio announcement X1 sales tanked hard...now things are back to normal. That’s all.

That and Microsoft keeps having sales on the Xbox One throughout the year. As someone said in another thread it would be a time-saver if they just announced the times that the Xbox One wasn't on sale. In May, for example, for a week all S bundles were marked down $50.

ok, so If Detroid sold 1M in 2 weeks; and GOW outsold it on May can we say GOW sold around 1.5M-2M in May??



Ps4 now has Feb, Mar, Apr, May and is still going well to take June. Plus 1 month and ps4 will have half of the year in npd's, compared to last year, the fight with switch is quieter.



Can confirm Switch stock is not much of an issue at least where I'm located (near Chicago). I think the Switch will be a success for Nintendo (I suppose it already has), but I don't think it has the longevity to carry it nearly as long as the PS4, unless they release some pretty serious hardware upgrades down the road. Sure, anything can happen at this point, but I find it surprising how many people there are that think it will be a 100+ million seller console. I guess it's possible, but I wouldn't place my bets that high just yet.

No. That 1 million in two weeks was worldwide. Not in the USA. This is just US numbers

People believe that because Switch is pacing along with other successful consoles

VGC numbers for this period:

PS4 - 256k (15% overtracked)
NSW - 200k (20% overtracked)
XBO - 150k (1% overtracked)

So seems everyone was over tracked, Switch was overtracked the most, with PS4 close behind, and XBO was pretty much spot on.

Adjustments down all round.

Excellent tracking.

So...how many Switches does Nintendo plan on selling this year? Because those numbers are good but not great.



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

20 million for the fiscal year, with the Spring/Summer lineup it seems like they are coasting on a handful of medium sized releases then having the big hitters do most of the work during the holidays.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Seems like PS4 had a very good month because of GoW and Detroit... with Switch and X1 having a very close numbers but still good.
