Forums - Sales Discussion - Amazon U.S. November bestsellers and general Amazon-based discussion

Some other factors to consider. I think across nov and Dec, if Nintendo could put 3m on shelves, they would probably sell all and win both month's. However I have my doubts they can manage this, and I'm thinking sales will be 700-800k max. Not enough to win.

The pro accounts for roughly 20% of ps4 sales, but I think in order for Xbox to be a contender, I'm thinking the X needs to be close to 50% from here on out. I'm not sure it can really sustain that.

So my thinking is a close Xbox>Ps4>Switch November. Ps4>Switch/Xbox December. If Nintendo manages a first for them in keeping up with stock, then no doubt they would be top instead.

Kimishima mentioned some new partnerships regarding the production parts of the switch,and said that now they are more capable of mass-production.So my bet is on 2,5 switch sold untill the end of 2017.

I think Switch will come in third place this month based on Price. I can't see a $300 beating the PS4 and XB1 when they are $199 or less.

You think Switch will have no Black Friday deals?

It's sells out almost as soon as it's stocked, so I'm doubtful we'll see much in the way of Switch deals this year. Maybe an older game bundled free, but the price will stay at $300 I think.

This worked for Sony, when everyone was screaming for a pricecut, just to beat MS.

There's a reason that Sony and Nintendo are killing it right now, and it's not because of knee jerk reactions.

700-800k MAX is absolutely way too low.

I mean October is probabily gonna be like 400k, you think They will only double those numbers???

We usually see x3 to x5 increase in November. Switch will easy sell over 1 million in both months.



2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

Breath of the Wild Exploerer's edition shot up. I wonder if both versions can remain high on the chart.
