I find European numbers for ps4 hard to be true knowing what ps4 just did in UK and Spain that week.

What are the numbers from UK and Spain for that week (with source)? I will double check to make sure our figures match.

This article announced over 300k consoles were sold between PS4, XBO and Switch in BF week in UK, being PS4 the best selling one.

As for the numbers in Spain they were announced via Vandal Radio (the ones that said that Spider-Man sold 103k units that week in Spain), being said that around 60k-75k PS4 were sold, i can't find any official statement about that but the numbers provided by Vandal are used as a fact in Spain because they use the Spanish official tracker for games, GFK.

Wow, the old PS4 that is quite ubiquitous now is beating the new deal NSW.

Greatness awaits

Well, the PS4 had a Spider-Man bundle at $199.99. You're essentially getting the PS4 by itself for $139.99, more than half the price off, plus one of the best exclusives the system has to offer and the most recent one based on an extremely popular comic book character and franchise. It's no surprise that it managed to win this week given the deal they had this year was considerably better than the deal they had last year.



There isn't much of a difference with the 300$/€ Switch and the 199$/€ PS4, that's pretty huge.

Thank you. Time to make some adjustments. UK is about 20% too low and Spain is a little too low for PS4 as well. I will adjust all of Europe up.

At your service!!. Keep doing your good work as always.



How much longer will Vita be tracked? It is sad seeing it almost completely dead.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Outside of Japan it will no longer be tracked after 2018. In Japan, it depends if Media Create and Famitsu keep tracking it in 2019.

Adjustments made. All 3 platforms are now just over 100,000 units in the UK. PS4 adjusted up in Spain to match and adjusted up throughout the rest of Europe. Switch also adjusted up slightly in Europe. If more figures come out I will be sure to make adjustments where necessary. 

New global totals (again more adjustments might happen):

 

  1. PS4 - 1,624,646
  2. NS - 1,349,280
  3. X1 - 1,118,498
  4. 3DS - 243,727
  5. PSV - 2,242
