So XB1 was the REAL winner for all this time, but we don't even knew LMAO!!!

 

Well, congrats to everyone xD

Well if we are talking full year, its more like

PS4-~5.3m

NSW-~4.8m

XBO-~4.4m

See above, i corrected my post. Also, i have those numbers:

PS4 - 5.46 million
NSW - 4.89 million (Nintendo said 4.8m, but i have 4.888K, overall those are just estimate, but still on track with the "over" 4.8m)
XB1 - 4.28 million



2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

So those are still estimates based on a Nintendo statement and resetera leaks? Why not wait until the real numbers are out?

Because NPD does not release numbers, all our numbers come from PR statements and leakers.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

I'm not sure what to think about the XB1 numbers. Compared to the PS4 numbers they obviously look amazing, but then again being down almost 150k YoY while the XB1s was $199 for weeks (including Christmas), with the release of PUBG and the free PUBG copy with XB1X purchases for 2 weeks you'd expect it to not go down 150k YoY.

Welfare has a good breakdown of total holiday sales.

PS4: 2.77M (~1.69M + 1.08M)

XB1: 2.745M (~1.38M + 1.365M)

NSW: 2.275M (~775K + 1.5M)



Wow great Switch numbers for December! Xbox winning the whole holiday season in US is impressive. Surprised SNES Classic numbers were so low. Though I guess it had already been out for a couple months and the Switch plus sales on ps4/xbox were the big christmas focus.
3ds numbers crazy considering that Switch is its replacement! 3ds might actually live on for another year or two. I was sure it would be dead in 2018, but looks good to keep going!



Nintendo just dominated December! Switch + 3DS + SNES. The good news just keeps popping up (Yes, I would say LABO was "good" news)



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Xbox won the holidays despite not winning a single month.

Also any leaks on how Xenoblade 2 is doing compared to X? I know it has to be doing better than 1.



Tag:I'm not bias towards Nintendo. You just think that way (Admin note - it's "biased".  Not "bias")
(killeryoshis note - Who put that there ?)
Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

This means switch sales are overtracked on vg charts for the USA slightly or else the switch only sells 182,000 between 24th & 30th December.

I think the Europe sales need to be adjusted up though. Unless vgcharts has the switch bang on 4.8 million at the end of December because it should be just over that I think.
