Forums - Sales Discussion - Which company is going to win holidays in the US? EDIT: Poll added

 

Which company is going to sell the most hardware?

Sony 49 45.37%
 
Nintendo 56 51.85%
 
Microsoft 3 2.78%
 
Total:108

If Smash/Pokemon or a mixture of something similar is out this holiday,then Nintendo has it. If its only Smash as the ''big'' game this year and that just ends up being an enhanced port, then PS4 has it

Regardless of what the line-up is, you can almost be sure that it'll be either Sony or Nintendo.

People keep saying this but the XB1 won Nov+Dec last year which is what is usually considered the Holidays lol. Why do we count them out?

No XB1X launch



Last year it was really close between the 3 companies for the whole November / december period. But this year Nintendo won't have 2 GOTY games released the same year and just before holiday for one (Odyssey and Zelda) and Sony still has great games released during the year (GoW and Spiderman).

Also most Nintendo gamers that want to play Pokemon or Smash have most likely already bought a Switch to play Mario Kart, Odyssey and Zelda.

And Microsoft won't release a new console this year.

So I think Sony will win this year.

This is true! For some reason though I still think this will be another close year between the 3.

Why are you assuming most people who want Pokemon or Smash already have a Switch?

Im curious how 3DS sold over 70 million if the majority of their fanbase is present after ~16 million sales.

You are right I should have said 'many' and not 'most'. But that will be enough for Sony winning this year.

But how did you come to this conclusion though? And why is it only for NIN and not applied to Sony as well with the PS4?
