It's crazy that some people see this as a success when it sits at 73rd in the yearly but saw the Pro  as a a failure when it reached 46th in it launch year. And Sony were still pushing the standard PS4 a lot more over the Pro at the time.

 

Anyway this is a decent launch for the X in the US (probably abysmal outside the US). Let's hope that January, and the rest of the year, is kind to it. I personally see all Xbox sales dropping off a cliff.

Who cares about Amazon US when npd told us that the X was higher launch aligned ? It's crazy to see that some arbitrary number matters to  people  more than actual sales figures. Amazon is all fine and good... Until we get actual numbers.

So what are you trying to say? Pro did fail or are you trying to say what I said and that both had good launches?

Woof! Yeah, it's not looking good. I see Xbox ones being $199 for the foreseeable future for a reason. The fact that a $200 Xbox can't even hit the top 20 is a bad sign of things to come.

So you're comparing the yearly sales ? friendly reminder that the X was in the market for about 2 months, the pro has been there for the whole year

Furthermore, 73rd is project scorpio you need to add the standard sales too.

Happy new year everyone!



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

No I'm comparing Pro's launch year position with X's launch year position.

What I said wasn't even an attack at X's sales so I'm not sure what your point is. I even said at the start of the second paragraph the X had a decent launch. What you're saying just back up what I said. 



Here's final update to the rankings for December and 2017 as a whole (five days since last update):

First the monthly rankings:

Nintendo Switch (grey): #6 (—)

The SNES Classic Edition was previously ranked #22, but has disappeared from the rankings. It appears to have been moved to the Computer Software section on Amazon for some weird reason. Oh, and Mario Kart Wii finished at #81 for the month.
