XBO got behind the 3DS with the XBO S?

3DS is a handheld. 

Handhelds are also consoles

Every PR release ever from sony and ms has differentiated between consoles and handhelds.  Dont pretend this is a new from MS.


I guess price is important all over again.

I'm not really here!

7-10k gap confirmed?

2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 11m, XB1 4m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, 9m PS4 and 3m XB1, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

What happened for Ouya outsell Wii U?

It's a joke. OUYA has been discontinued in the USA since June 2013.

Really? I thought it was still sold and some deals happened.

So the xb1 fire sales did the trick after all. With the xb1 slim plus OG xb1 at 249 should give the win on august as well. Believe it or not, I am glad xb1 is going to win at least a few months now. Numbers are getting boring without competition.

Congrats Xbox, for being ahead regarding home console's hardware sales during the month!

Congrats 3DS for beating everything! You should teach your cousing WiiU how to move such numbers. xD

Wii U is not a cousin, it's the redheaded stepchild.

If it was a redhead it would be doing amazingly!

Redheads FTW!

Aqua can you tell us how close it was? Not nessarily complete numbers.
Just.. is it more than 25k? I thought this month would be pretty close, am I right? it won by a slim margin?

If that happened, then it's not so good

Than add "home" to it. Its not 1st place unless you spin it

"Console" is home and "handheld" is handheld. Hardware refers to both.

Just on the PRs.Console always refered to both, since a handheld dedicated to gaming is also a console.But yeah, they always use that PR.

But as Tbone said, not a big deal.Nintendo got a win today, thats whats important.

My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Congrats Xbox and 3DS!
