At this point I don't even know why it matters what the PS4 is selling compared to anything else.

Isnt this what people were telling you like a week or two ago when you were saying they need to cut the price?

How are the two related?

I stilll think they sould cut the price. Never said they needed to do it though, if anything I said if they keep selling well then the never would.

My reasons for wanting them to cut the price has more to do with me wanting them to sell 110M+ consoles before the PS5 launches and nothing to do with the switch.

Really? Your comment from 2 weeks ago says otherwise.

"Now if only NS ca do this for like 8 more weeks then sony will hae to cnsider things like a price drop."

So 2 weeks ago you said Sony would have to consider a price cut if Switch could outsell it for ~2 months, now all of a sudden you say it doesnt matter what PS4 sells compared to others and Switch has nothing nothing to do with why you think they should cut the price.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

I can't believe Octopath Traveler had that much of an effect in the US. There has to be something else boosting the numbers so high in the states.

Sony should thank their lucky stars for Europe

No, they earned europe, it's no luck. They made advertisment to european gamers, brought games these gamers are interested in, made representations even in smaller european countries and so on. This is the result.

So, are you arguing that Nintendo didn't earn Japan, which is what PortisheadBiscuit was replying to?



I'm one of the few who actually plays the Vita quite a bit... but mostly because I like PSX games, and the Vita is IMO the best platform to play them on.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

He cited nothing, so I didn't see he was answering anything. And no, I don't argue Nintendo didn't earn Japan, they did a lot for japanese gamers, this includes console design and games catering to this user-group. And as I wrote before, Sony did in the beginning of the gen a lot to lose Japan. They are trying now more.

My bad, I read the posts in the wrong order.  The "Nintendo should thank Japan" comment from someone came after PortisheadBiscuit's comment about Europe, not before.

I see can comprehension is difficult for some people. 

Yes. I said that i wished the switch could outsell the PS4 for like 2 months.

So that would prompt sony to drop the price.

Cause the sooner they drop the price the sooner sony can sell 110M before PS5 releases.

That way my prediction comes to pass.

That in no way means I am pushing for the PS4 droppings its price and selling more because they should be worried about the switch. At this point it doesn`t matter what or how the switch sells cause sony has won the 8th gen already and the PS4 will be released by 2020. However, if sales of the PS4 remain decent or they keep winning every week globally then sony will have absolutely no reason to drop the price.
