All depends on when Pokemon is hitting. There will be no stopping a full console Pokemon from running shop.

Wow it's very close. But there's still only one person who voted for MS. Haha



I think it’ll be interesting. We have a good idea of the PS4’s holiday and potential here and there isn’t much from Microsoft at the moment that can sway me to thinking they’ll do that big unless they have price cuts for the Xbone X. As for Nintendo, I think some are underestimating Nintendo when they say “PS4 easily” or what not.

Nintendo has historically done well and last December showed it had an incredible month with Xenoblade 2 (the first of the series noted to sell over a million) as it’s big game of the month. We know very little outside of Smash Bros. in relation to Nintendo’s holiday lineup, but I’m sure they have something up their sleeve. Plus you have the evergreen titles and the potential for more as I’m sure word of mouth will continue to spread as the user base grows. Hopefully we’ll see more compelling third party titles.



hard to say now, e3 could make the difference, could be kingdom hearts 3 be ps4 holiday title or resident evil 2 remake...i think after e3 we can say more



Looking back though....last year in Nov+Dec is considered to be the Holidays then didn't MS win last year? Or am I mistaken?

Sony has a marketing deal with objectively the biggest game releasing this year. RDR2 is going to be the most successful 3rd party deal this generation. Another big game from Sony is Spiderman releasing September 7th. Sony is ensuring this game will have long legs and mindshare during the holidays by releasing 2 movies in this universe alongside: Venom (13 Oct), Spiderverse (7 Dec).

Nintendo is dependent on Smash Bros, unannounced megatons (Pokemon?) and the possibility of Labo being successful. From 3rd parties a portable GTA V could also be very succesful.

Which company is going to dominate the holidays in your opinion? 

EDIT: I'm talking about hardware sales.

Wait, wait! There is a venom movie coming out?? And a new Spider-Man movie as well??!!!

Oh well i dont consider november as the holidays but nonetheless Switch had stock issues and absolutely no deals during black friday and managed to be that close to knocking deals for the PS4.



If Sony cut the ps4 price at 199, I can see it selling the most.

Close? In Nov? Nah it was not close at all now in Dec it was close but the Switch won......and did the Switch really need deals seeing as it had just released a few months earlier and was still the hot new item on the market? And isn't Dec normally always bigger for Nin than the other 2 as well?

This year will be different though, some good Switch deals and bundles should be expected and I think it will sell great. Now will it be enough to win the Holidays I do not know but I think it is a toss up at this point!
