I get you. I think it was more the stock situations in the months where Amazon was wrong. And yeah, the bulk of Switch sales will have come in January when it first went on sale, most likely. I would expect it to outsell the other systems at the very least 2 to 1, more likely around 3 to 1 next month. 

Are you saying you think it will outsell the other consoles by 2:1 this month and by 3:1 in April? If so, why do you think that? Is there a game on the Switch I'm not aware of and doesn't Persona 5 release in April?

Oh no, no, I meant "next month" as in the March NPD that will release in April, ha. I expect Switch to be down in April by quite a bit, depending upon supply. For March, though, I expect it to outsell the next closest system by 2 or 3 to 1, just judging by past launch numbers.

Playstation domination baby!



Maybe Microsoft's Mouth Windows Central will give us the numbers. Assuming Microsoft their source "leaks" them the numbers.

Unless the difference is as big or bigger than January where we got no numbers.

What were the January numbers?

Yeah, seeing how Microsoft didn't mention sales being up YoY while they did in December and January it's probably fair to assume that XB1 is down YoY. That would put XB1 below 248.2k

In which case, I agree



 

The PS5 Exists. 


Super super for the star ship trooper! Ps4 domination baby. It should be the top selling home console in March too. Cant see xbox beating it until scorpio launch unless they do an insane promotion during one of the months.

It not about the numbers with Microsoft anymore, it's about what they say.
