Ps4 and Switch will battle out for the rest of the year (like in the past months where it was always relatively close), but i think next year Switch will lead most of the time. Price will drop eventually, new colors/bundle might come out, and we will most likely not have 0 system seller again for a whole 6 months.

See I told Boffer to relax and that the next week could be different. Switch on top! And PS4 still going strong as ell even in 2nd! XB1 of course still have its best year ever.

If they hadn't NS on top for the week with both Octopath and Captain toad releasing, I would have been very concerned. The question is will Switch stay on top for the coming weeks (like the predicting tool suggests) or not?

I think it will stay ahead in NA and Japan at least surely for the rest of the month.



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

Great that Switch is finally #1 for once, but now it's next significant release isn't until October. Sales seem to be holding in Japan though so maybe it'll be fine.

In July - august, the Switch has a good chance to win the NPD and even the WW sales.



I wouldn't be surprise if NSW wins next week and a few more weeks in Jul/Aug. PS4 line up isn't helping on this summer.



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

All right, after like two months of being 30k behind PS4 (which isn’t even that much), Switch is ahead for one. Let’s see the downplaying.

More seriously, I wonder if it’ll hold the lead for another week or two before PS4 overtakes it again?

Didn't see any downplaying =p

I know, but there were 3 noteworthy titles on the week, so you get the general point.

Well honestly only Octopath i would say. Captain toad is a port and released on 3DS too...

I just think Switch momentum is back up since Fortnite/Smash/Pokemon announcements and early this year we just had no clue what was to come so there was no reason to buy it other than Zelda/Mario/Splatoon.

Switch being stable in japan might make it lead a couple of weeks during summer and i can see Switch leading a lot in Q4. Ps4 will crush everything in september with Spidey and RDR in october if i'm not mistaken.

Well any new game can attract some purchasers so it adds up to Octopath. Also there were a third game mentioned.

From Spider in September and forwards I believe there will be constant big games from regular third party games.

Very likely.

And is Switch lineup better in Jul/Aug?

July definately had a better Switch release schedule than the PS4.

August is up for debate but PS4 probably as a better lineup by a slim margin.

Insiders on era definitely hinted at they had a hard time seeing Switch not taking home the July NPD

I'd say Switch has a good chance of winning more weeks in July and a couple in August before September and October hits and PS4 should probably sweep those, holidays will be exciting though!



I think this Switch lead will be short lived, maybe even just this one week, as they don't have a significant system seller for the next 4 months until Let's Go in November. 



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
