I wonder if we´ll see a system with a PS2/Wii/DS type of domination ever again.

Ps2/ds prob not, wii well ps4 does it better.

I think he means on a weekly/monthly/yearly basis. During its prime, Wii had just absolutely rediculous sales but PS4 will overtake it due to consistency & longevity.

I'm not understanding why switch numbers are close to US in europe. based on nintendo own graph NA sales are on another level vs europe.

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?

I'm just doing mine by saying it's the 6th year it's been on the market. Not that it's 6 years old. 

2013 being the first and 2018 being the 6th. Just that. In 2019 I'd say it's the Switch's 3rd year as it would've available in 2017,2018 and 2019.

You are not truly at fault, but you sound like ps4 is a lot older then it really is hahahha.

Ps4 is in the market for 6 years and is in its 5th full year.

Now we are all happy:)

Did you ever get an algorithm for the Switch?

Yes, there is one set up now. 

Nice, that's good to hear.

It still VGC estimates, don't be surprised when they'll need to do reajustement.

I understand it's just estimates just interested in seeing why they think europe is near NA numbers, when nintendo own graph suggests they are 2 million ahead or near that.

Hss it occured to anyone that maybe switch sales in EU are holding steady while their sales in NA are declining?

I mean we know switch is most likely not doing in EU as well as it does in NA.... and we have NPD data for-NA so at least numbers for there are close to accurate.

nintendo graph shows around 5.5 million for NA, vs around 3.5 million for europe as of jan 21.

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

Yeah wa sno big deal just something I saw that's all lol. You are good with me as always!

PS4 has a huge established user-base approaching 80 million compared to 16 million and is consistently outselling the Switch on a month by month basis and at this point we don't know which console will slow first but the gap between them currently is increasing slowly and favouring the ps4. 

However we don't know how Nintendo will pursue sales as the console matures. They pretty much didn't bother with the wii u holding it at a high retail price to the end with a drastic reduction in console sales, a nosedive. Will Nintendo be more aggressive with pricing this time or will they be happy to maintain a very high profit margin but lower hardware sales? Will online charges effect sales? Will nvidia prevent a price reduction? Will a portable hybrid competitor materialise from Sony or Microsoft?

It's going to be interesting to watch it unfold anyway. Currently though it feels like ps4 is dominating but then I am viewing it from a European perspective.

 

 

 

Yeah I can see that! And this is great all around! A Healthy industry!
