Why are they all down so much compared to last year?

Switch is up, just not easy to see because the PS4's 2018 overlaps the red line of Switch.

PS4 and XB1 are down because interest in these consoles has been waning throughout the whole of 2019.



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

That Switch peak from previous years is for December. Last year Sony had terrible deals for December while it had good Black Friday to Cyber Monday deals, which was for November only. This year Cyber Monday falls in December.

Another big thing is Cyber Monday was included in November 2018, but this year it is in December.

Switch will be able to narrow down the gap to the Wii to a few million at the 36-months-mark before the gap grows massively in favor of the Wii again. But by month 60 or so, Switch should pass the Wii for good.

Damn, I somehow missed that this thread had been posted already.

I remain confident Switch will eventually out-leg the Wii due to Nintendo basically abandoning the latter prematurely after just 4 years of support.
