Who have the Bigger install base will sell the most Digital Software, lately a lot of games have sold very well digitally on Japan.

If you Mean Digital Attach Rate per user so then Xbox One, have the Advantage, PS4, is popular in places that have poor internet, and in ones that have good internet, while Xbox One's Most sales came from USA, and UK, while for PS4,  isn't even 50% of the Total Sales.

I think youre arguing PS4 vs X1.

That post was in regard to 3DS vs X1.

I Thought that you was refering to the Thread, "The 1 Retail Software Console this Gen", both have good Digital Attach Rate, but aggain we fall in the same subject, if is Digital Units per User, so i think that the 3DS, have the Advantage, if is Total  sales, of course Xbox One, will have more, 3DS, is selling well on Japan, and Digital Sales of every console are  growing in the same direction.

3DS, sold better on Japan, and on USA, countries with higher Digital Attach rates than other countries, i think that Japan is still ahead of UK's Digital Sales, so the sales per user, is of 3DS, Total, will be for the Xbox.

The average sales of games per generation is 10-12 for Home Consoles, and 5-6 for Handheld, so Xbox One, have the advantage.

I dont understand your question.

Lets just say moving enough software to get great 3rd party support is the most important achievment. I think X1 has that.

yeah i didn't sound clear. i agree that x1 will sell more software so when we say who did better we say x1 beat the 3ds. 

my question was, who did better reletively. is it a success for the 3ds that it will stay ahead of the x1 for so long and a failure for the x1 to take so long to pass it. Or is it the opposite and it's a good achievement for the x1 to pass it when it will and a failure on the 3ds part to not hold out longer or maybe even outsell it completely. 

stupid question by me but that's what i was asking. 

Well the achievment for X1 is its still moving a lot of software. A respectable amount for its userbase and core audience (core platforms move more software). With proper support it could move 500-600 million physical units. Not even counting digital.

3DS is a success but also an example of how the mobile console market is losing relevance. So in a nutshell, X1 is in a more desireable position. X1 may move more physical software than 3DS, Wii U, and Vita combined.

If we're going to lump all gaming devices foolishly into one, then ios and android owns them all. PS4 or 3DS... neither of them come close to software Apples game sales.



Even if home consoles usually sell more software... this is still impressive. Especially since the PS4 is still far from catching the 3DS hardware-wise.



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

We're not lumping them all onto one we're talking about sales that vgchartz actually track because that's the site we're all on. PS4 has already taken over 3ds if you count digital sales but they aren't tracked here.

Nintendo handhelds often have surprisingly low software to hardware ratios, largely because people who buy Nintendo handhelds largely only buy Nintendo games even on the DS, which had a tie in ratio around 5 games per system. PlayStation and Xbox gamers traditonally buy far more third party games, so the writing was on the wall. Congrats, I guess.

I would argue Nintendo handhelds having low software to hardware sales ratios not being suprising at all. you have a lot of people specifically picking it up for Mario Kart on the go or Pokemon or whatever and then not caring to get other stuff

historically speaking though NO handheld consoles (regardless of parent company) tend to have high attach rates in terms of software pushed per console sold. at least compared with home consoles
