Yes. The switch is not selling as well in Europe as in other countries. Europe has twice the population as Japan and US combined, but only a fraction of the overall switch sales. 

Selling a bit worse than PS4 doesn't equal to "is not selling well". Actually, selling almost on par with PS4 in Europe means very good sales as PS4 is currently the third best selling console in Europe of all time.

PS4 is at the end of its cycle, while switch is near its peak.

PS4 is really the poor pc setup for European, this is what people see :p Cmon parents buy it for their children to play FIFA , PES, COD and GTA. This is the machine what is for! There is no quality and fun gaming in the afore mentioned games! Switch does great and some people cannot overcome it!



Switch more than doubles its nearest rival in the Americas and more than triples it in Asia.

Wonder when we'll start seeing sub-40k weeks for Xbone.



I didn't think there would be a direct this week, cos I'm a pessimistic dunce.

Probably in Spring, tax return season is coming up and Microsoft usually has promotions going on then.



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

Ain't nobody gonna mention that PS4 outsold Xbox One by over 6 to 1 in EU this week? And almost 4:1 worldwide. Jesus Christ

Nah man. Everyone is too busy discussing Switch is doing bad in Europe.

Fixed.

Else, you should've said: "Everyone is too busy discussing how Switch is doing in Europe."



3DS! You can rest in peace, king.

Yes we all know, there is no quality game available on PS4. People bought over 100M of it out of masochism.

I speak for a great majority that buy ps4 just to play the aforementioned games? Do you doubt it? I work in the retail; all they ask is FIFA, COD, GTA, Fortnite! This is why a great number of people bought ps4

The collective of anedota isn't statistic.

Look at the number of SW sold on Europe and you'll see that isn't the only games.

And those that buy those titles will totally disagree with you that these titles are trash.
