What does this quote actually mean?

"This was driven mainly by Microsoft’s Xbox One, though Sony’s PlayStation 4 remains the best-selling console in March and 2018. The Nintendo Switch 32GB with red and blue Joycon controllers was the best-selling hardware in March and 2018."

Switch sold more units or what?

1. XBO is making the most revenue mostly due to the Xbox One X

2. PS4 is the best selling console

3. The Red and Blue joycon switch console sku is the best selling bundle/sku. Doesnt mean the switch is the ebst selling console.

 

So what I read somewhere else is that the Neon Switch model is the best selling hardware model of the year and March but collectively the ps4 family sold more than the ps family?

Switch Neon Red and Neon Blue ist the bestselling SKU of all. Keep in mind Switch has only 2 SKU (neon and gray, Mario Red and Splatoon Neon are long sold out already) while PS4 and XBO have multiple SKU, thus splintering those sales between all of them. PS4 sold more units total, but no single SKU sold more than the Neon Switch.

Yep definitely missed that lol. Thanks.



Got to say very surprised and impressed that Sea of Thieves made it to the second highest spot and became the highest selling exclusive of March, despite it being on Gamepass and the backlash the game got. Very curious to see how it will perform in the coming months.

Heh, heh...looks like we're going to be seeing some new avatars around here. Kirby is definitely taking down Ni No Kuni II.

People thought Ni No Kuni II would outsell Kirby Star Allies? They’re really bold if so.

OT: So Kirby did over 300k as I predicted. Very nice, and it probably did 1m+ FW worldwide too. We shall find out tomorrow.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Well deserved for Far Cry. I finished it yesterday, put off diving deep into God of War to finish it. The ending was incredible. The departure from typical Ubi style gameplay we’ve seen so many games emulate is really what made it fresh enough for me to be able to complete it. I was barely able to stomach a couple hours of FC4/Primal before I tapped out, and even games like Horizon that leaned heavily on Ubi designs grew old. This is only the second open world game I’ve been able to finish this gen, while I completed a ton last gen and even platinumed many on PS3.

Nice to see SoT selling well. Bodes great for SoD2.



Second march comparison between different systems:

GBA: 832k (GBA SP & Pokemon release)
Wii: 721k (Smash Bros Brawl release)
PS2: 362k
PS4: 330k
Switch: 308k
XBO: 229k
3DS: 225k
X360: 199k
PSP: 186k
DS: 184k
GC: 165k
Xbox: 165k
WiiU: 70k

No, people said Kirby would sell more while NNK2 would be the better game.



NNK2’s revenue was 60% higher than the first one. That is good news.
