Forums - Sales Discussion - Global hardware Nov 4th 2017

Well, this shows games like cod and fifa do wonders for hardware for market leaders too. I remember people saying both wouldn't have any effect as "anyone who wanted cod/fifa would already have a ps4"

This week was huge and the fifa week was too, casual and core gamers that had old consoles wait for these games to upgrade/jump in, sony was smart to get these marketing rights

PS4 had monster week.

Now we will see the " But Switch is supply constrained"

which BTW it's only in Japan.

It's doing about as well as the PS4's in its first holiday after launch.

Which is indeed terrible, we all know the PS4 flopped hard. 

PS4 did about 5.3m in its first holiday after launch. You really think the Switch can match that?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

DS did 5.9M, Wii did 6.0M, and 3DS did 6.6M in their first holidays after launch. How is it in any way unreasonable for Switch to match 5.3M?

Which makes it even funnier that people are arguing with me about how big of system sellers these two franchises are in the NPD thread.

the noticeable here is that the Ps4 was at $399 and the other 3 are/were at $299 or less in their first holiday after lunch, so yeah is something achievable to the Switch.

well, Nintendo said they are shipping 10 million switches through Q3+Q4 2017.

Putting 3 Million on Q4, we have 7 Million for the Q3, minus 1 million in october, 6M seems to be more or less what they expect for november/december.



I think this week shows how MS letting go activision with their COD deal is one of the biggest mistakes they’ve made this gen.



 

Monster week for PS4. Any idea what GT sport launch week numbers were
