Switch > all last generation consoles combined.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Switch is a beast, while the last generation consoles are on their way out. Switch will keep a strong lead over everything until the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett launch in Holiday 2020.

So, the XBO All Digital $150 price point is responsible for the bump for that console. Why is the PS4 up around 60K on the week before black Friday?

It is just the time of year where console sales increase every week leading up to Black Friday.

Two more weeks like this for Switch and it passes X1, shipments are likely already above the X1 at this point.

Woah PS4 just became the 4th most sold console in history, thats amazing. Such a great achievement for such a good gaming console. Im really happy for them, I hope the PS5 can emulate this kind of success. The Switch is also doing amazing, right in its prime and the Xbox one is just doing alright. its fine. Just hanging there.
Vita tho got a boost in sales from last week. Hopefully next week it'll reach 25 units sold.
