Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
Fastest TI MASTER in Europe : rank Master V in 5min10

LET'S FACE THIS FACT : The Switch is the last physical video game system of the history who has a chance to beat PS2's sales.

Interesting...

Doesn't make a whole lot of sense, for PS4 and XBO sales to drop in December. Usually December is much stronger than November. If this is true, then.. wtf happened??



Going to be a fun January NPD discussion thread if true



Nothing to see here, move along

Their source is actually Benji from Era. Not that he's wrong, but I'd wait for a stronger source, just to be safe. Considering what released on the Switch, and a lack of PS4 deals, it's believable. But still, better to wait on that.



                                                                                                             

I think this is very likely to turn out being true. In 2017, PS4 "only" did 1.08 million in December. 2018 is down year over year and PS4 doesn't seem to have any compelling deals this December.

I expect over 2 million from Switch and the ranking to be Switch 1st, XB1 2nd, and PS4 3rd.

Based on last year, I'd say this just about follows the normal trend. Nintendo systems are significantly up, Sony is significantly down,and Microsoft stays close to flat. I think we see this due to Sony putting huge sales on there systems in November, but not in December. Nintendo didn't do many deals, at least ones that you want to jump on. Which leads to people waiting and seeing on the Switch, that leads to a  much stronger December for Nintendo and a weaker one for Sony and Microsoft.

PC GAMING: BEST GAMES. WORST CONTROLS

A mouse & keyboard are made for sending email and typing internet badassery. Not for playing video games!!!

That's a damn shame - great game, great Christmas present and a great bundle. Would have sold like hotcakes.
