Forums - Sales Discussion - PS4 Won April NPD ( PS4 > NSW > XBO)

Damn. PS4 better than I expected. Switch and XBO both well below. Now, we see why MS dropped price, yet again. Though, I'm pretty sure they had some sales going on in early April.

Npd Switch is selling worse than last year which is surprising because it had 2 extra months this year.

Holy shit that is a major month for ps4. Sold almost 200k more then xbox in April. Beat switch very easily again and wins another month this year. Now we see folks why Sony don't drop the price. They'd be crazy to with numbers like these. God of war major system seller confirmed.

 If in the USA "alone" the PS4 basically outsold the XB1 3:1, then worldwide......  the differnce must be massive.
Wonder if VGChartz shows this for the weeks in April as well?



This is what happen when you don't have any games coming for the month. Congrats to ps4

Switch had a launch + 1st holiday that year..... those two are more important than 2 extra months at the start of the year.
Plus It had Mario Odessey + BoTW, this year it hasnt had a new huge title to get people to go buy a unit.

it might not do those 20m that people are saying it will, this year.

from what I read that's ~100k higher than PS4s previous best April NPD, impressive

Here are the North America estimates from this site

PS4-315k
NSW-270k
XBO-220k

Now thats North America while NPD is for United States so lets assume USA is ~85% of NA than we are looking at this

PS4-~270k
NSW-~230k
XBO-~185k

So ps4 50k lower on vgc and switch 60k higher on vgc xbox 50k higher on vgc aswell if we go ny theb85% estimate

Nintendo itself also said that, but like you wrote, Switch lineup until April wanst good while from this month is getting quite stronger and espacily in second half of year when we will have Smash Bros and most likly Pokemon.

Switch sold around 1.2m only in March last year that was launch month, two more months this year can really beat that, so nothing strange Switch is still not YoY up compared to last year, but it will be in few months.
