switch is just slacking in europe

It literally has the same percent of marketshare in Europe as it does in America this week.

 

America

PS4, ~34%

NSW, ~34%

XBO, ~31%

 

Europe

PS4, ~50%

NSW, ~34%

XBO, ~16%

 

The difference just the split in popularity between PS4 & XBO in Europe compared to America.

yeah being within 1k in the U.S. of PS4 and behind like 40k+ in EU makes it seem like the difference is much bigger

3DS:  This thing is in dire need of a price cut.  I think the N3DS XL has been $200 for way too long.

I actually think they are planning on phasing out the N3DS XL and just keeping 2DS ($79) & N2DS ($149) on the market.

Its in its 8th year and isnt recieving huge games anymore so i think they are happy with it selling ~50k/week.

I think they can pull off one more solid holiday by offering some nice special edition bundles and possibly having N2DS at $99 on black friday.

After that i expect software support to be essentially non-existent, sales to plummet and be discontinued in 2019.

Yeah i know what you mean, but like i said it just comes down to the split of the console twins.

For the average western gamer (shooter/open world/sports fans) PS4 & XBO are largely interchangeable. In America the Playstation & Xbox brands are very competitive while in Europe Playstation is the overwhelming favorite.

 

Basically its like this

PS4, NA-really good, EU-amazing

NSW, NA-really good, EU-really good

XBO, NA-really good, EU-mediocre

I think PS4 takes it in the US for March.
see : http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=235297&page=1

April with God of War, should be a PS4 win too.

A tool to try  predicting an outcome. Doesn't mean it'll work.
Does it contain brick & motar sales too ?

Its only online stores I think.... but its a more complete picture than just amazon.

Over 16 millions Switch sold by the end of the fiscal year, that's pretty neat.

Who would've thought. Not that long ago, 14 mil by the end of FY sounded insane.

Two things I noticed:

1. Vgchartz is probably overtracking total Switch sales by about 1-1.5 millions.

2. From what we know about march ndp, ps4 will cross nintendo switch, vgchartz has them very close.

Let's see what happens.

Honnestly, I knew the Switch would be a success and wouldn't fail like the Wii U. I don't think they're going to sell 25-30 millions from now to march 2019 though. More like another 15 millions, close to the Xbox One.

Switch is one week from being above Vita. At least on VgChartz (I don't trust these Vita numbers that much).

Nice yet another good week for all 3 consoles! Everything is looking quite good!

Two things

1. What are you basing this on? I would not be surprised at all if its overtracked but its likely only by a few 100k.

2. From what we know about March NPD? What do we know about March NPD?
