So a virtual tie but now places swapped... the battle is very close for over a month now.

With the new pokemon bundle there is no way Switch won't dominate the holiday seasons (if it wasn't clear already).

You're expecting a $399.99 Switch bundle to dominate the holiday seasons? It'll sell to diehard Nintendo/Pokemon fans and that's about it. There's pretty much zero mass appeal.

 

Yea and we all know the pokemon and Smash fanbase is tiny.



Nice, PS4 above 200K, Switch close to 200K. Interesting that Switch is leading in America and Japan, but PS4 takes the lead with winning only the european region. Xbox manages three digits in Japan. 90K is overall not too shabby, but looking at the numbers Xbox makes more than half it's sales in the Americas. 3DS and Vita slowly dwindling away. With these numbers holidays should be pretty good for both Sony and Nintendo.



3DS-FC: 4511-1768-7903 (Mii-Name: Mnementh), Nintendo-Network-ID: Mnementh, Switch: SW-7706-3819-9381 (Mnementh)

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

PS4 back on top. The universe is right once more lol. Great numbers for PS4 and Switch. XBOX One X would be good if the competition’s numbers weren’t so great. 



PC GAMING: BEST GAMES. WORST CONTROLS

A mouse & keyboard are made for sending email and typing internet badassery. Not for playing video games!!!

PS4 being at the top again! Can't wait to see how it will sell with Spider-Man release!

Since when does a limited edition need mass appeal? And this is Pokemon we're talking about.. this bundle will sell out.

Since the user mentioned the word "dominate". That requires mass appeal.

Of course the bundle will sell out. It's a limited edition. It's not going to dominate anything though, especially in the holidays.

Is this 500m PS4 week or is that next week?

It released on the 24th, so next week



SW-3707-5131-3911

A virtual tie between PS4 and NS, although it interrupts NS domination that lasted 5 weeks after a very long PS4 domination. Both are up.
XBOne up almost 8%, 3DS and PSV down just a little bit.

Is there any hope for XBox improvement?



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
