Last year, with November and December combined Switch was third place, if I recall correctly. Though all three did well.

This thread is about Q3 2018, and not about November and December.....

Ohhh! All the talk is about Q4 right now so I assumed we would be talking about that. Why on Earth are we talking about Q3 as if it is noteworthy?

Depends on the context. 
Is it Q3 of the FY 2018 ending on March 31, 2019 or is it Q3 of the actual year?

It is in the article (July-Sept.)

NPD clearly  says growth for the quarter  for hardware was because the ps4/xbox  and plug and  play devices  with no mention of switch.

That didn't explain anything about the post you just made. Switch was last in Q3 last year? What? Also last this year? Your post makes no sense. I get you do not like Switch, but can you stop making shit up because you do not like Switch, please.

Sorry I made a mistake

That is fine, it is whatever to make mistake  and you owned up to it but seriously, tone down the dislike, and as much as you may act like you don't have it, it is apparent.

So XBX made the most buck, is that it?
What about hardware units?

I will answer this for you as well, since the last post was just trying to clarify the report's statement, Xbox experienced huge growth because last year it was sort of a dud, this is why it is heavy contributor to the growth compared to last year, however with that said it is still third place unit wise and most likely revenue wise as well, as Switch won July and August and PS4 won a lot in September with Switch was second. Xbox One is consistently third in most months and usually sees the most growth in November and December for a large chunk (due to serious amount of deals).

"Switch was last in Q3 last year? What?"

I was replying this to this part. I thought you meant Q3 as in fiscal year Q3 and not calendar year Q3, so my mistake.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

I'm only discussing sales. I'm not shitting on switch or venture into other switch threads lately you guys take this too seriouslyit's just fun to me seeing who wins and gets the right prediction.
