As expected they were Depleted of PS4, few Switch in hand and a little more X1. Looks like similar to last year situation.

Yeah you’d think one of the big 3 would have declared victory by now

Maybe it's too hard to call. They're waiting for all the info. Didn't someone proclaim victory too early one year only to be bitten in the butt when the full figures came out?



From the sounds of it on Resetera its
1. PS4 (slightly down YoY)
2. NSW (up alot YoY)
3. XBO (down slightly YoY)

Last year was
1. PS4 ~1.6-1.7m
2. XBO ~1.3-1.4m
3. NSW ~750-800k

Based on the retailer insights and last year numbers I would guess

1. PS4 ~1.5m
2. NSW ~1.3m
3. XBO ~1.1m



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

All 3 sold 1,234,567 consoles confirmed. 



From what I herd sales are down this year (well form early on in the first).

Maybe no one wants to announce a hollow victory lol.



 

 

No announcements means one thing for certain.

MS didn't win in anyway. They don't have up YOY announcement to make, revenue leader announcement or even MAU announcement.

So guess its between the PS4 and NSW
