PS4 and Xbox One sales are both down just under 40% year-over-year. This is a bigger drop than the PS3 and Xbox 360 saw during the year the PS4 and Xbox One launched.

Spring drops all around. If ps4 goes back to 6k in japan next week, it could even drop bellow 130k worldwide.



Glad the corona virus is only impacting 1 region for the Switch.

I was going to say something similar but it appears to be controversial as it doesn't feed the narrative that's being used on this site. Whether they're 40% down or 30% YoY or whatever the case is they are lower than last gen as this time and apparently that's all that matters. How dare anyone say anything positive about a 6 year old + console. Even though PS4/X1 is still 13 million units higher launch aligned with PS3/X360 according to this sites "estimates". Then again these estimates are highly questionable as of late in the last few months. Estimates such as randomly adjusting down PS4's 2017 (Sony confirmed 20.2M) year numbers to make it look like Switch outsold its peak year. That along with having to adjust down Switch in the millions after this past Christmas as well as having to adjust PS4 up by 1 Million in June of 2019. It's pretty obvious whatever tracking method being used on this site is highly inaccurate as of late. Even still the PS4 is selling fine at this point in its lifecycle for its price and still has great exclusives lined up over the next 3 months that will surely cause a bump regardless of “40% down”.



Good numbers for a system that is 6+ years old and it’s $299/399.

The switch is starting to get affected by the coronavirus, will we see any drops in other regions aside of Japan??

The productions for the US stock was moved to Vietnam last year. Unless Vietnam gets heavily impacted by the coronavirus then they should be fine. I also heard production in Foxconn is underway so we will see Japan stock to be fixed in the next couple months.
