Week successfully Smashed



America numbers seem way off.

All insiders are pointing to Switch doing over double PS4 in December but somehow it's only up ~10% during Smash week? Doesnt add up.



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

LOL, Smash-week and PS4 still, albeit marginally, sells more in Europe.



Nothing to see here, move along

Yaaaah, unless it's the adjustments for PS4 numbers or the next weeks are going to produce mastodon numbers for Switch, I would honestly wonder why these numbers are so near from each other ...

But yeah, I guess the cautious approach is fine too !

US numbers dont really make sense. We know that XBO did better than PS4 due to sales, and the Switch has absolutely skyrocketed, delivering one of the best Decembers of all time.



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.

As is always the case with holiday sales, it is best to wait it out. Of course there will be adjustments, but without any concrete data for US NPD December, it is all guesses right now.

The bulk of those december sales as will that of any holiday sales is not coming from smash being a sales driver but rather from the NS being a holiday gift item. Especially for kids, even if that gift is bought along with smash.

I expect to see this reflected next week and the week after that where NS will have around double the sales of everything else. 



great sales for switch, but ps4 did well too



Numbers are probably a bit off, but still great nonetheless. Smash is the most important exclusive since BoTW
