using resetera 125% for 5 week period, ps4 would be up by 30k.

Isn't the second year for PS4 2014?

2nd full year. It was only available for 1.5 months in 2013.

Switch released in March but its launch month offsets the lack of Jan/Feb.

2014 vs 2017 is year 1

2015 vs 2018 is year 2

January* 190k, Dying Light 270k +80k Switch
February 340k, Evolve, The Order, Xenoverse 280k, Bayonetta 2 +20k Switch
March 330k, Battlefield, Bloodborne, MLB, FF Type-0    
April 175k, Mortal Kombat X    
May 155k, Witcher 3    
June 370k, Arkham Knight, Elder Scrolls Online    
July 220k, PGA 2016    
August 210k, Madden, Until Dawn    
September 355k, Metal Gear Solid, NBA, FIFA, Mad Max, Taken King    
October 275k, Assassin's Creed, WWE, Uncharted Collection    
November 1540k, Call of Duty, Fallout, Battlefront, Need For Speed

Major releases are new games that charted in their debut month.

looking at that list, just tells why switch won't be able to compete for long, just look at how many system sellers the ps4 gets, it's almost every month, it''s staggering.



Switch doing alright. But it does need the games to do it.



Pocky Lover Boy!

It could easily be argued the opposite.

Jan+Feb PS4 had much bigger titles with Dying Light, Evolve, The Order & Xenoverse vs Switch just having Bayonetta 2 yet they are doing pretty much the same.

i was very impressed with switch JAN, but February, selling 60k less, to me looks like the downtrend will start when comparing it to ps4 sales. you also have to remember for a nintendo console, having zelda, 3d mario, and mario kart in the same year and at this quality  is unprecedented.
