remember when the switch was going to win every month unless PS4 had a big exclusive game release. i do.  four wins in the last five months now for PS4

PS4 did have big exclusive releases though. Monster Hunter and Far Cry are big exclusive games when last I checked.

Regardless, congrats to the PS4 still doing very well in its twilight years.

Switch is certainly not falling off any cliffs though. Any data to show comparison with PS4 1st/2nd year for the month ?

Err.... Far Cry is absolutely not an exclusive and Monster Hunter was released in January. And also not an exclusive.

they are multiplats, just because they aren't on switch doesn't make it exclusive

It's exclusive to XB and PS4

Seems like great sales for each of the 3 systems.



I'm suprised by how close Xbox is to Switch.

- None of those are exclusives, and one of them released on january

- Not so sure about twilight years when last year was peak year and this isn't trailing so far behind. Might surpass 2017 with a price cut or later game effect

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 

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.

I have never seen you speak positively about Switch or Nintendo, so the story about what you thought is most likely made up in order to have a talking point how Switch sales are underwhelming.

That you play the victim card despite your known posting history is rich.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

3DS with that +19% is a beautiful thing to see.
