PS4 leading WW but not dominating, Switch holding its own.

This was a pretty odd comment. What made you say not dominating? Not coming for you or anything it just seemed like a random thing to throw in when no one has anything about it dominating.

Well, it's an entirely accurate assessment. :)

Still, it doesnt make sense to call 2013 its first year when it was out for like 7 weeks.

Nov 13-Nov 14, year 1

Nov 14-Nov 15, year 2

Nov 15-Nov 16, year 3

Nov 16-Nove 17, year 4

Nov 17-Nov 18, year 5

PS4 is 4 years and 4 months old, this is its 5th year.

I didn't say it's been out for 6 years. I said this is the 6th year it's been out as it's been out in 6 different years. How has this become such a big deal? We're talking about 2 different things.

Its not a big deal, its just a really strange way of counting years.

PS4 has dominated WW the last 4-5 years, Switch is altering the trajectory a bit. Not sure what's odd about that...

Yeah but that has been the case since the Switch has came out which was a year ago. So to pick this week to say PS4 leading WW but not dominating just seemed......well random. Again especially since no one had said anything about it dominating. Again i was not attacking you or anything it just seemed a little odd to me when I saw it that's all.

I think you're overreacting slightly, but I digress



PS4 is at 77 million now (VGC numbers obviously). Sony planned to ship 78 million ending March 31. They did it.

Yeah.....thats not how that works.

It's the 6th year it's been on the market. I didn't say it has been out for 6 years or even say it's the 6th full year. It's gonna have it's 6th holiday season this year. 

Its not even the 5th full year yet..... dunno how your oqm math works.

Nov 2013- nov 2014= 1yr
Nov 2014-Nov 2015= 2nd yr
Nov 2015-Nov 2016= 3rd yr
Nov 2016-Nov 2017=4th yr

Nov 2018 will be making the 5th year......

So how are yoi doing yours?

They increased their forcast after last quarters results, they are expecting 79 million now, which they should have no problem reaching.
