True but was switch not heavily supply constrained for much of 2017? Nintendo even stated late summer I believe just they were gonna be ramping up production a bit more. It also won several months of npd last year despite the supply shortage. Not to mention the switch had no good deals in America this Christmas and was full price against a $199-$249 PS4 and $189 Xbox S. If memory serves, PS4 also didn’t have any good deals in 2014 other than a gta5 bundle at full price whereas Xbox was heavily discounted with the Assassin creed bundle and beat PS4 handily.
Personally I see switch having a much better 2018 now that they have a more steady stream of units hitting shelves.
Even under a better production outcome for the Switch, it's not likely to effect the PS4 in any significant way. They sell to two different demographics.
Next, the Xbox One only gave the PS4 some trouble in the US during the holiday 2014 period (and that was only after a temp price cut - to which the PS4 wiped all of those US gains out the following year). The latter destroyed Xbox overall. Here, I'm talking the peak of a system worldwide. And, remember, demographics dictate a lot.Last edited by CGI-Quality - on 10 January 2018
