This week again NS pwns Japan and outsells PS4 by a decent margin in North America too, but PS4 pwns EU and the rest of the world enough to be the best seller WW.
XBOne decent selling, but distant third, but it sells the same in America and EU, this is quite good for MS.
3DS doesn't want to die yet.
PSV doesn't want to undie, either.



Stwike him, Centuwion. Stwike him vewy wuffly! (Pontius Pilate, "Life of Brian")
A fart without stink is like a sky without stars.

the actual combined units that Sony / Nintendo get into homes is crazy close when you consider all active machines

278,512 for Sony and 279,071 Nintendo machines.... if you actually take away even the Wii-U numbers from it, Sony would have taken it.

MS with a combined 93,832 new systems into homes just under 1/7th of the total sales going to the MS brand, that has to be making an impact on XBL activity now especially when things like multiplayer games come into play, you can really see why MS is trying to put heat on Sony to open the doors to cross platform when their own machines player base is shrinking like that.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Yes, the only two things good for MS are that for a third ranking overall and second ranking home consoles sales are not bad (7th gen had excellent sales for 2nd and 3rd too, mbut that was an extraordinary generation, comparison with all the other generations is much more favourable), and that XBOne sales, after a beginning with overwhelming North American share of total sales, are becoming more evenly split between NA and EU, Japan is still inexistent for the XB brand, but at least it currently hasn't to count almost exclusively on NA anymore.
Anyhow, what it has lost compared to best weeks for XBOne itself, and to the whole XB360 life, shows how dangerous was putting all the eggs almost in just one basket (plus a smaller one, UK, previously representing an ovewhelming part of EU sales, already much smaller than NA ones).
If MS won't leave the console market altogether next gen or the gen after, it will have learned some lessons the hardest way.

I really can't see MS leaving the console market at all.... but I can see them making a drastic move to try to drum up interest in their brand, either by inviting valve to bring Steam to the X1 system or else start to bring their games to the Switch in some form or other.

Basically MS will exist in gaming but to make money I would see more of their IPs be like Minecraft which is going to be one of the top sellers pretty much everywhere it goes, than like Quantum break was at launch... locked away as either a broken Windows 10 store launch or as an exclusive on a console under the least number of TV's no software deserves to be ignored as some of the X1 library has been simply because the console it's on, the WiiU software is now getting a second lease of life on the Switch... perhaps some of the X1 games would go the same way... also it would get them into Japan in a way that the Xbox never ever... EVER could.

Wow, Sony really has the european market absoluely dominted. How are Nintendo and Microsoft even counter this?

I doubt they put as much stock into "winning" as people on message boards do but if they did, I suppose it would be by winning the other two territories by a large enough margin. Switch won the US and Japan. That's two out of three. It's just that Sony has such a strong hold in EU and Fifa came out... which is... yup, huge in EU.
