What? Lol.

 

I think PS4 will win because monster Hunter, switch will be second and do quite well too and xb1 has been on sale all month more or less.

But monster hunter came out last month. It already recieved over a week of tracking in Janruary NPD. If that couldnt make PS4 win, this month will be no different.

 

You were saying? Ps4 won February. What I wasn't expecting was xb1 to outsell Switch too ✋



Wow, almost everyone predicted a switch win, myself included. It wasn't even close apparently. Very unexpected.

I'll happily eat the crow. Also, looks like monster hunter world maintained its legs through february as well, given that it's #1 this month.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Yoda says: Unexpected, this is. Xbox in second, at least I got right.

Ok, let's see if I'm getting better at this.

NS - 330K

ps4 - 320K

X1 -  300K

Well.. well.. well.. at least I got the X1 almost right.  But it looks like Im still not getting any better at this lol

I can't say I'm mad at these results though.  I mean I would have liked a closer battle, but still.
