So PS4 just had its best month ever, even better than launch month (according to Dualshockers)

It seems that is case for XB1 also, very impresive.

As I understand it, Xbox had its best selling November, not the best of all time.

Yeah, its seem that only launch November in case of XB1 was stronger.

its confirmed now switch was 800k for the delusional.

Now to fix this attitude of yours.... I hope switch wins next month but only to hear what you will say about it xD

Sure thing the only reason you want Switch to win is to correct the guys manners =p

To a great December to all.

Best drink. Best drink ever. Same thing. Best drink. Best drink since last one. - Very different.

Remove "ever" from "best month ever since launch" the meaning stays the same. It is the second best selling month.

Remove "since launch" and suddenly the meaning wildly changes.

If the November > launch - he wouldn't have added "since launch"

Yet you are arguing removing the two words at the end that radically change the meaning.. AS opposed to the redundant one in middle of the sentence?

OK, how about "Best drink ever since last one"? Do you really see no problem with that? "Ever" clearly shouldn't be in the sentence at all. At least Don is from Brazil, so it's not like he's going to be as familiar with natural English as native speakers. You're apparently from the United States, so what's your excuse?

Gotta be pretty desperate to make such a .. lacking argument. Does the switch selling less than launch month bother you that much? You may have too much invested in these systems.

Obviously not, seeing as how I just said that I think Zhuge meant that Switch sold less in November than in March. You should try actually reading the post next time. Or just work on your reading comprehension. One of the two.

I accept my bad English knowledge altough I talk to american quite often, but certainly not on daily informal conversation. But my point was that people use the words imprecisely even when it's their native language. And also, you can't really refute the point of the "and they lived happily ever after". Because you said that ever should only be used as absolute, so the after is pointless, and also since you can't see the future you shouldn't use ever at all.

Well, at least we have PS4 & XBO numbers now. I'll update my charts later tonight. Just got home from work and I need to eat something.

If we get more concrete Switch numbers, someone let me know. Knowing me, I'll end up missing it or getting sidetracked and forgetting to check.

Yesterday we didn't had the final numbers, just better points of estimative (1.3<X1<1.5) and PS4>1.55, did we get anything outside of VGC?

Also according to NPD, on their venture beat report, the link was posted here, the 3rd or 4th block had PS4 as having their best month ever, in a different one had X1 having its best November (I think they included the launch November as well) and Switch having its best Month since launch.

Is that the final number? Lower than I expected, if so.

They specifically said that it did 2.5X what it did in October.

But can we just get good old numbers instead of multiplication and approximation ?

Na, its over that so 750k is the floor. If it were close to 3x they would of said so. 

Ex: 2.6x would mean 780k or 2.7x wpuld be 810k. Unless it is exactly 2.5 but it says over. 



Reading the source, they say 2.5x over October. So that should be, roughly 8-815K. That would be closer to what I was expecting.
