Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

5 week correction:

[NSW] 282K

[PS4] 239K

Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

Yeah. The sheet is wrong. NPD is still going by the NRF's calendar, which has Jan. 2018 as the 5-week month and Jan. 2019 as the standard 4-week month. Jan. 2018 sales period ran from Dec. 31 to Feb. 3. Confirmed on ResetEra by NPD's Mat Piscitella.
