Seems like a clear trend, One is by far seeing the most growth but has a long way to go, 3DS had a spike like I thought it would and is now on the continued downwards trend globally, also like I said it would.
Wii U showing small growth overall but this is right around the time when MK8 released last year so we'll likely see heavy downwards trending yoy for all of summer, even more than the 3DS.

PS4 showing some growth somewhere along the average for normal growth in the second CY, or somewhat below, still nice when viewed in context with the relative lack of big releases and still no price cut, but the One also has had no big releases and the price cut is getting old. Sony will probably have to take action before next year starts if they want to keep growing decently for 2016, I don't see Nintendo being able to do anything with their downwards trends for both handheld and home console and I don't think they really care since I believe both the 3DS and Wii U will get their successor next holiday season.

All in all; there is decent overall growth in the home console market, despite the One's huge percentages, the actual figures are still way below the 7th gen since both the One and especially the Wii U are moving slowly and the handheld curve is ridiculous in comparison over a similar time frame.
I would say that the industry is doing "okay", no less and certainly no more.

Edit; I forgot, YAY, WE HAVE NUMBERS AGAIN!


I have an additional explanation to why the XBO is up so much, besides the unbundling of kinect and the pricecut. That reason is that MS announced the kinectless SKU sometime late in april iirc, and sales took a nosedive. I'd presume they did it in the week ending the 18th, as that's when the massive upwards increase began (went from 36% up to 65% up :-o )

Holy shit. O.o
So much week update in one day, is probabily first time lol.


So many updates? What do you mean? If you could provide links to all of them, it would he very much appreciated!

28th March was the last week, so we got everything from there until 16th May.



Should we tell all the people that made giant threads about their departure due to lack of updates?



Great, numbers are back (and every system is looking bad .-.).



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Yeah, mandatory Kinect was by far the worst choice MS made for the One.

Sarcasm... right?



Do we know when we will get the next update (11th April)?



It's the unpredictable nature of the updates that's losing users rather than that they aren't being done at all.

You mean software? Nope, just got to wait and see



Nice. No real surprises.

I personally enjoy seeing how Wii-U and Vita do about the same numbers on a weekly basis....one just sells less in NA, and the other in Japan.
