Can't wait for xmas!



Boy, the Switch is on a 1-way race where the others are barely advancing and the PS4 is now on 50CC speed ...

The Holidays can only get interesting at this point with the new generation launch.

RIP for PS4 in Japan.
Total domination for the Switch.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Over half of PS4 sales are coming from Europe.  Basically Europe is the only thing keeping PS4 looking like it has decent sales.  Switch still dominating everywhere.

If this continues 3ds will sell more than PS4 and xbone by the time next gen consoles arrive and yes, I am being hyperbolic



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

300k will probably be the baseline for the Switch until the holidays which means it should sell 17-18 million this year before the holiday sales begin. It'll outsell its entire 2017 and 2018 sales without November and December which is nuts.



Nintendo Will sell tons of Switchs this Christmas. Which holiday title Will help to achieve this? Animal Crossing. Nice idea to keep Big hits for 2021



Nintendo Switch is going to surpass PS4 ltd sooner than we thought



I'm laughing to die seeing 3DS outsold PS4 in Japan, what's wrong with Japanese?
