Impressive numbers for Switch. Only 300k away to outsell XONE!



According to our estimates the Nintendo Switch is now just 324,233 units behind the sales the Xbox One. With how sales have gone this year the Switch will be passing the Xbox One the week ending December 7. (Unless adjustments are made if we get figures from more official sources.)

So what does that make the Xbox total for the month in the us? Something seems very off about that number but maybe I need the full picture



Come on, it was so close to outsell the XBO.

Is it possible to reach 50 million by the end of the year ?

Is that the highest week for Switch ever?

For the US in November we have the following for sales:

  1. Switch - 1,565,057
  2. PS4 - 1,062,666
  3. XOne - 908,144

We have an analyst predicting the Switch to be the best-selling platform in November, the PS4 down year-on-year, but over 1 million, and the Xbox One between 800,000 and 1 million. http://www.vgchartz.com/article/441593/analyst-ps4-sold-over-1-million-in-november-in-the-us-xbox-one-below-1m-switch-best-selling-console/

It's easy to forget that the XBO has such a strong holiday compared to the rest of the year. Seeing a console that's been posting 50k weeks for a lot of the year suddenly jump to almost a million.

Good sales all round. PS4 should finish the year with about 106.5m sold so below my prediction. Probably 14.4m-14.8m for the year.

Switch it all depends on how big an impact the lack of Smash Bros has on December. If it will be down/flat/up YoY is hard to say. But it's clear my 18.8m prediction has been well and truly FACKED. I blame the Switch Lite's sudden emergence.

Switch should finish the year with 19.5m-21.5m sold.

Not only is my 18.8m prediction wrong, but I predicted 2020 would be the peak over 2019 and now I think I'm going to lose that wager too.

If sales for the Switch are flat for the rest of the year compared to 2018 it would put sales around 49.4 million.

Everything considered PS4 is doing really hot, and the switch is quite literally entering the prime of its life,

Sales aside i do wish the PS4 had a permanent 199 price cut due to the fact that the dollar has done nothing but go up in value absurdly in this last 4 years (pretty sure it is more expensive now that it has ever been in my life), and the consequence of that is that the PS4 is still as expensive now in my country as it was when it came out, i know some guys who want one but sadly cant afford it.
