Surprised the PS4 only outsold the Switch by 3k with MHW in NA. But PS4 got a good boost overall.

And as i was saying to I can't remember who.... MHW is not a system seller in NA.

Europeans have decided that Switch is awesome.

there is no evidence to support this at all. 

There is, it just didn't show up here before because Europe was constantly undertracked. Now that Europe is on track it's outselling the US



Switch is doing well in NA but NA is fickle AF! Better hope a new hot toy doesn’t rear its ugly head this Christmas.

Switch Hardware shipments WW LTD by %:

Japan - 25%
The Americas - 40%
Other - 35%

not to mention other includes europe, and the ROTW, while americas is the just the americas. then we have nintedo own chart showing us it's only around 3.5 million in europe.

Microsoft didn't do anything bad with this generation, they only sold a lot of Xbox 360 because of the high priced PS3. With Sony selling their PS4 cheaper than the Xbox One at the begining, consumers trusted Sony again, just like during the PS2 era. And the Xbox One is doing regular and predictible Xbox sales (just like the original Xbox).

The next generation will be no different.

Sure they did.

Being $100 more at launch, Kinect being required, no used games/DRM fiasco gave it a really bad pre-launch reputation that they have not fully been able to shake off.

 

With that said, I agree that the PS brand in general is stronger than XB and that all things being equal PS will always outsell XB.

When I said "they did nothing wrong", I meant there was nothing surprising of how Microsoft announced the Xbox One. They did what they always intended to do. They were under the spotlight for a generation just because Sony made a mistake (the overpriced PS3), but even at the end of the 7th generation, Sony won.

Now they will go just like Sega, expecting from people to buy their console just because they once bought the Xbox 360. The next Xbox will probably sell less, or, at least, the same.

People weren't surprised by how shit a console it was going to be and how many anti-consumer practices they were trying to force on to it?



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

Wait, but wasn't the switch cannibalizing PS4 sales?

Or is cannibalizing 3DS sales?

Matt from NPD stated that Switch isn't impeding the other two consoles.  It was already obvious (PS4 having its best year despite Switch launching) but yeah.

I wasn't surprised they did what they did. They were pretty scummy for much of the XB360's run. ( IMO ) ! And Xbox division aside, this is Microsoft after all.
