Switch is doing insane numbers. 30-40% up YoY consistently every week. This year is gonna end up some record breaking for the Switch. Also, surprising how Xbone manages to be up YoY every week compared to last year when it's on it's way out.

Xbox One S being the cheapest console on the market and Game Pass are helping sell the console. How much it is up compared to last year has been on the decline.

PS4 bracing for the Last of Us 2.

Good numbers all around.

Switch living its best moments and PS4 surviving amazingly well despite being nearly seven years old.

I wanted to say Xbox One X bundles and smart delivery, but maybe that's just a few oddballs like me. Regardless, it's nice that Xbox are trying to cover a lot of bases with their ecosystem.

The Xbox One X bundles I am sure are helping as well. Though, Smart Delivery I doubt would be the reason many people buy an Xbox One right now. I could be wrong.

I would also add the fact that games people buy for XBO can be transferred and upgraded later on when they buy a XSX, so the buyer's certainly mind much less buying into a dying console due to this. And it binds them already to the Microsoft platform for the next gen even before it's out, so win-win for both of them.

I hadn't really thought of that. I was just thinking the people who are buying an Xbox One right now wouldn't be buying an Xbox Series X until a few years down the line. Plus knowing all first-party games will be coming to the Xbox Series X AND Xbox One for one to two years into the next generation has to help.

Switch still killin it.
PS4 only 8.5% down is not bad at all for an almost 7 year old console.

Probably would have been better to wait till tomorrow for NPD in case any adjustments need to be made like the last 2 months though.
