Wow, PS4 actually did come in 3rd in NA this week. Looks like NPD tool actually is getting the order right even if the ratios are a bit off. I'm still impressed with the tool. Because this dip in PS4 sales seems to be a special case, but it is reflected in both the actual numbers here and in the NPD tool.

It's probably due to the combined forces of low supply and Amazon Prime day boost

Yeah I'm shocked by PS4 coming in at 3rd. Xbox will probably still come in 3rd overall for July NPD. Switch is doing great btw.

Switch numbers in Japan is absolutely amazing, great in all territories but Japan doing 2.5x the closest competition while still being neck and neck in all other regions is just great to see. Iwata's dream has been picked up by gamers just like he hoped it would be.

 

edit - fairly nuts to see that 3ds/X1 are so close in EU, Nintendos 7 year old mostly retired handheld shouldn't be the closest competition to the current Gen Xbox

Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

The NA figures are pretty close to what the prediction tool tracked in July.

Didn't the prediction tool have the Switch at least double the PS4 in points?

Are you suggesting it sold less because it sold too well, or am I misinterpreting?

Looks like the Switch might actually reach 50m.

PS4 pulled down by lack of supply while the XBO got boosted by Prime Day sale on Amazon, hence why PS4 is on the third place in the US this week, behind Switch and XBO
