Forums - Sales Discussion - Global Hardware 10 March 2018

Sigh,... no one even talks about the XB1 anymore.

Kinda like how everyone just pretended the WiiU didn't exist.

Saving this post for March NPD

I don't deny that the PS4 can win March NPD, the amount of lead you're prophesying seems way too high for me.

1. Kirby (and the March Direct) should give a much bigger boost to the Switch than Bayonetta 1+2 did

2. No more Monster Hunter World boost for the PS4

3. Lack of a such strongly boosting high-profile title on the PS4  coming out this March than was MHW. 

You’re forgeting MLB The Show 18, which according to VGC has twice as many preorders with 9 weeks left than MHW PS4 had 1 week before release. Last year, that game spent 3 months in NPD’s top 10.

Does MLB really still push consoles? By now everyone who wanted to play MLB should have a PS4 imo. I understand that the game is selling well, just like Fifa in Europe, but also just like for that one, new releases don't really push hardware anymore since everybody interested into those games already have them.

So this keeps PS4 up YoY right? Or am I mistaken? Heck everything is up YoY from what I see. The Switch staying good and steady and he XB1 is having a great 2018 so far! Also thank you for the hardware updates! They are very much appreciated!!!

There's a dedicated thread that tracks PS4 2017 vs. PS4 2018. If I remember correctly, 2017 has taken the lead a couple of weeks ago and is extending it.

Of course, 2018 consists of VGC estimates, so there's the possibility that in the future adjustments will be necessary in light of official numbers from Sony.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Don't know why people keep sleeping on MLB the Show. It's the 4th best selling sports game after NBA2K, Madden and Fifa and its exclusive. You also have Farcry 5 + Ni no Kuni, the Playstation evergreens (GTA5, Madden, Fifa, NBA2k) and the remaining people who received their tax returns over the month.

That's some strange over confidence right there ...

why? this month ps4 won by 83k, ps4 is always strong Feb, and march. look at your sig i was wrong about xbox winning, but was right in switch coming in third place.

Well, when I tried to have a bet with you for 90k you declined though, and wanted to lower the figure.

From eyeballing the graph I put VGC's current numbers at:

First 10 Weeks of 2018:

PS4        -   3.14m
Switch   -   2.37m
XBO       -   1.16m

First 10 weeks of 2017:

PS4         -   3.08m
Switch    -   1.62m (2 Weeks Only)
XBO        -   0.9m

So everyone is up, PS4 only a little, likely due to the insane Q1 lineup last year. God of War will help it gain back some ground against the likes of Horizon, Persona 5, Nioh, RE:7 and Gravity Rush 2. Luckily MHW already dealt with most of it.

Yep, should be another very good month for PS4, probably over 300k again.

Honest question: why do you say this everytime on these rankings? xD

 

Honest answer: it is, despite the fact Nintendo is trying to support 7 years after, the system is slowly decreasing in sales.

And I only did it 3 times with this :)

It’s about time to die, don’t you think? It’s entering year 8. Besides, they are only supporting it with ports or remastered. I’m sure it will sell another 7m or 8m before going out, which is great.

Personally, I hope it fades away quicker. The more support for Switch, the better.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won
