The Legend of Switch: Skyward Cliff

I don't get it.

A member here has been proclaiming that Switch sales will suddenly fall off a cliff.  He used the phrase repeatedly to the point that it has become a meme.  Other members have taken to creating "cliff" images, GIFs or wordplay as a response when Switch sales show the opposite.

This one here plays on the notion of a cliff that is skyward...suggesting that falling off this cliff would actually rise as has been seen with the Switch sales.

Really close and amazing sales overall!!

Talk about near tie... and X1 was quite over there as well, great.

Looking at this results I can say that it was a great idea for Sony to introduce a mid gen upgraded ps4.i remember all the gaming sites and fanboys doubting Sony regarding mid gen console but in the end they are proving them wrong.ps+ igc was also great idea but it didn't provide any boost to hardware maybe because it was more of a service but it did create a positive mind share among the gamers.its still is best value for money service on the market.also Sony should reduce the price of ps4 to 150$.i mean it's already 6 yrs old.

Does anyone have a breakdown of this?  Like what % is Pro vs Normal PS4?

Pro is about 20-25% of total on last update we got about 3-6 months ago.

Good for all considering only usa sales. Not so good for the x on the global sales

All three systems pretty close, Pro and X models are helping the PS4 and XB1 perform like mid-cycle systems rather than late-cycle systems. It's a fountain of youth in game hardware terms.

PS4 did that this month and the previous month without Pro. They are mostly sold out in US.

So like this?



Would like to know the software

Mediocre numbers for Switch, but August was one of the rare months without a first party retail release, so I guess there is a mitigating factor.

I thought the numbers were pretty good, what makes them mediocre?

What makes them mediocre is the size of the US market. People who have been looking at sales for only the last few years are likely to consider 200k in a month good, simply because they are used to a sales pattern where the winning console of a non-holiday month doesn't necessarily get above the 200k mark. But such a sales pace results in only 5-6m units sold for the whole year (holiday sales and system-selling games included) which falls notably short of 7m+ that popular consoles of previous generations managed to achieve.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
