Good month for all consoles



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Impressive by the PS4 and xbox one. PS4 will by +Y/Y with April and GOW, can't wait for those numbers. As for the Switch, while it had a decent month, its hard to place it in the upper echelon of Nintendo consoles. The Wii was clearing 700k a month by this time in its lifecycle

So nsw has to clear close to 700k a month? Why is x1/ps4 ok then? 

Thats a weird way of saying switch isnt doing good this month lol. All 3 did great for what march was

Honestly it truly was. Basically the opposite of Japan right now.

The Wii's 700k was supply constrained (forgot to add that) but let me further explain instead of you putting words in my mouth.

Me, personally,  thought that the Switch would have some type of separation dynamic where it being the more innovative machine, it being newer and replacing two devices would cause sales volume to explore more than it currently is.  if the PS4 is doing 350k, the switch would be doing 550k, but we are not seeing that,  like at all.

And I never said that Switch isn't doing good for this month (in fact I said it had a decent month).  It's you (as usual) interjecting stuff out of thin air just to get a rile out of people.

*In revenue

That way people can't say you are wrong.  The PS4 > Switch revenue wise in January so it would be four months out of five.

I wonder why hardware sales in Japan are low right now.
