I was expecting them to be very close, but still Switch on top; I was wrong.

ps4 still rocking the floor, and thinking it's 5 years old, it's amazing

Yep, it's a miracle Console.   Anyway, good figures for the other competitors too.

that's right, all 3 got good numbers

So I guess its safe to say the PS4 will close the year at around 92M sold.

Which puts it at what for 2018? 19M? 18M?

Amazing.

2018 has been an amazing year for PS4, which seems to be unstoppable even after 5 years...and it's not the whole story, as 2019 will be amazing too with all the AAA titles supposed to be released next year and a likely price-cut.

Xbox did very decent compared on how far they usually are behind the others saleswise.

And i really think the following gen is even going to get better, if you think about it then it kinda has the right setup to it.

Sony wants to keep momentum going and let that momentum overflow into nextgen while still partly keeping it in the current and you can expect Microsoft to do everything they can to go back to the xbox360 popularity and to do that they need to get a lot more competitive with Sony on the exclusives and we have seen them prepare for it in the recent years or at least we can say that we have seen the signs for it.

Sony should also predict Microsoft competitiveness for next gen so it can be a possibility they also try to boost exclusives.

And Nintendo is a case on its own competitors wise and does not really have to share its market with the other ones as it has such a coexisting nature with its exclusives and focus/audience but now with the switch they on themselves are also in an uprising again and i am expecting them to boost and hype it even more with an upcoming new switch model.



Compared to last year: 3DS is down, PS4/XBO are about equal and Switch is up.

Platform 2017 2018
PS4 1,682,712 1,624,646
XOne 1,079,356 1,118,498
Switch 823,754 1,349,280
3DS 487,971 243,727

Yeah I always say this. This gen ps4 didn't have major momentum leading into it or a massive subscriber base subbing to ps plus. Next gen ps5 will be coming off the second most successful console ever so if they play their cards right that will benefit it.
