I'm expecting switch to be 550-600k next week. Japan we already know is 200k, North America I think should be similar with 200k, Europe 150k, RoW 50k.

Will next week be the first week the ps4 wasn't the top seller WW this year? 

There was a few weeks where Switch was number one, namely for a month when octopath came out(unless adjustments changed that).

I think adjustments will be made.

Yes, I would not be surprised if there is more PS4 sold in reality.

I must have a look. 

EDIT: I just checked. Yeah 2 weeks around Octopath Switch was on top. I wonder if the PS4 has won every week of the year in terms of Software sold?

yeah every quarterly results this year from sony ps4 was adjusted up on here so you are probably right.

Game wise isnt it already past 880m ? That last 120m probably wont take another year to reach 1bn.

About what it hits 100m hw sold through.... hmm sometime next year, probably before holidays too.

I thought it was around 770 as of last report (september) - have they released additional numbers since?

777.9 million units of games ( june)
+75.1 million additional games between June and September

= 853 million by end of September

in october.... they did.... I cant remember exactly, but I remember seeing the 880m number somewhere I think.

Point is 770m units of games sold was long ago (if you saw it resently in some report, its because sony is useing old numbers).
They are around or just over 10,2 games pr system sold.

Actually, I think they're overplaying PS4 numbers in NA knowing sales would come to a halt because of BF's week. People are smarter to wait for the deals.

Meanwhile, Switch numbers in NA were probably downplayed since it goes in contradiction with statements made by NPD analysts for the first two weeks of November. Pokémon had it's effect on sales and it's strangely not showing up.

But hey, it's just VGC.

And 2017 is behind 2018 again in total sales. Pretty bad numbers all around for the second week of november.

There will likely be adjustments, but even if there are not, remember that we are five years into the lives of two of these machines. November or not, they aren't going to continue to sell at those same rates.

Benji is not npd and he's already admitted his numbers could be well off. 

Ultimately why I don't get the weight put behind his words. Without the data, he is simply guessing. He's been right before, sure, but he has also been wrong before. Others, like Zhuge, are my go-to people for numbers. 

As they say; even a broken clock is right twice a day.



Yes I think PS4 will hit 1bn games sold by end of March 2019 possibly.... maybe first in April.

Hopefully they do a announcement for it.
