We need US black friday data :(



So XBX made the most buck, is that it?
What about hardware units?

It's probably close between xbox and ps4, with switch coming last like last year.

That sentence wasn't about what made the most money, but what contributing factor that led to the growth for the quarter. Xbox One is super up from last year, namely in revenue, PS4 was also up largely in September thanks to wonderful game called Spider man. The Plug and play consoles were also heavily featured in the summer by Nintendo, so they produced a large growth as well.

Switch while winning two of the months of the quarter, was flat, so it cannot be held responsible for the growth of the quarter, just that it was stable.

Are you talking about something completely different than what you actually posted in the OP?

NPD clearly  says growth for the quarter  for hardware was because the ps4/xbox  and plug and  play devices  with no mention of switch.

That didn't explain anything about the post you just made. Switch was last in Q3 last year? What? Also last this year? Your post makes no sense. I get you do not like Switch, but can you stop making shit up because you do not like Switch, please.

Last year, with November and December combined Switch was third place, if I recall correctly. Though all three did well.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

This thread is about Q3 2018, and not about November and December.....
