This is the same person who deemed the PS4 Pro a failure. His perspective on sales tend to be very questionable.

Ps4 pro could be considered a failure, depending on how you look at it. 

Not even close to a failure. Assuming there are 2 million PS4s in shelves, then the PS4 has sold through 65.5 million by the end of September. Subract 53.4m from that, the PS4 has sold 12.1m by the end of September. Considering that the Pro makes up about 20% of total PS4 sales ever since it launched, the Pro sold about 2.42m units.

Compared to the XB1, VGC has it selling around 3.1m by the week of Sept 16. I think it has sold less than that amount based on EA and IHS's estimates, and US/WW ratios. I have it selling between 2.15m - 2.54m up to the end of September. For the sake of argument, let's pretend VGC has it right. The Pro has sold 78% of the XB1's YTD sales so far this year.



It seems like Switch again won NPD month.



Well done to Nintendo. Really want to get a Switch and Mario someday, looks like the successor to Galaxy I had hoped it would be.

I'm not neccessarily talking about sales. The console fails to push the needls forward in anyway. It really has no point to exist in my eyes.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Where's Colin Moriarty now?

He is a Playstation diehard. That's no secret. It's just that it's sad that he won't give Switch or any of the games credit. His comments on BotW were childish to say the least.




One of the co-hosts of Kinda Funny Games Daily said that he was surprised that the Switch was only doing 2 million in the U.S., and that he "at least expected 4 million by now" in the U.S. He then said that the Switch is only doing good in comparison to other stuff coming out right now(I'm guessinnnnnnng he means stuff like Xbox One or X)

I believe it's their episode on October 31st

I never had much of an opinion on him leaving Kinda Funny at the time other than it was justified, but he wasn't of any focus to me being there or not. But now I'm glad he left after him acting like this. I hope he know's the more he acts like this the less people will take him seriously with these things.



Selling quite fast the damn thing is.
