i'm talking japan, 2 million WW in november is not that amazing.

2M in November with NO sales/pricedrop is pretty big, especially when the competition is 100$ cheaper

ps4 probably did near 4.5 million in novemebr. 100$ cheaper yea but 4 years older, so 100$ is nothing really, 3ds, GC, and wiiu being cheaper sure didn't make them sell like hot cakes.

Good on Nintendo, despite some that constantly downplay their success, it is nice they are trying to meet demand everywhere that supply is lacking.

Yeah some people are really quick to downplay any good news coming from Nintendo.

You do realise that this is best PS4 year from launch, and $100 price cut during BF deals with some extra deals (like Gamestop gave $50 in store credit) was huge and great deal.

you do realize that ps4 199$ sold out in like a day or 2, they could have well sold over 2 million on Novembe. 3ds was 179.99 in novemebr that only sold like 800k its first yeat i think, its just not about price, it's just a ton of demand for ps4 at that price. just look at xbone, it was 189$ with way more supply, and couldn't beat ps4 despite it launching the X which did great numbers.

there very good numbers, but people think it's similar to ps4, and it's not for obvious reasons that i stated.

Yes I do realise that, but nothing what you wrote has anything with what I wrote. Again, this is best PS4 year from launch, and $100 price cut during BF deals with some extra deals (like Gamestop gave $50 in store credit) was huge and great deal. Why PS4 won November NPD while Switch won most of previous months, because that huge BF deal obviously.

Reading back the thread, you're the one who felt the need to bring up the PS4 into the discussion. Prior to your intervention, it was merely people taking about potential weekly Switch sales in Japan.

switch won most months because of pent up demand that was never fulfilled, next year it won't be the same and ps4 will be winning most of the months, its like super nes classic to a smaller disagree, it could probably beat ps4,3-5 till every that wants one get one then, then it's over.
