impressive numbers, should go on til after holidays



I feel sooo bad for PS Vita.......



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Man the Switch and PS4 are battling it out! And the fact the PS4 is up from last year is even more crazy. It is a crazy beast for sure. Next year should still be solid for the PS4 and should be HUGE for the Switch. Could possibly be the PEAK year for the Switch. Xb1 still staying the course I see as well. Nice week for all!

I strongly doubt next year being great for the PS4..... unless they drop to $199 early on. But I guess it will be great when compared to the XB1. 

I would be surprised if the PS4 does more than 16M next year without a price drop. Which isnt bad when you think of it.

Sony please, don't be so arrogant; after more than 5 years of total domination, please give Switch a couple of weeks, so everybody would be happy :D

Again, 5 year argument is stupid. You don't sell less going over the years. It's one of if not the best PS4 numbers for that week and up from last year (which was its peak year.) Switch didn't peak yet and is up 130k from last year that week, while doing over 1 million every week of December and destroying the PS4. 



Can a sales admin please explain how the HW YoY tool determines which weeks go to which months? In 2018 it decided that August and November are 5-week months, while September is only 4 weeks. I thought that the industry standard was for the months to be in a 4-4-5 pattern, with March, June, September, and December always being 5 weeks.

Furthermore, does this mean that December 2018 will only be 4 weeks long, or will the year itself be 53 weeks?

15-17m is a good enough guess, especially considering the possibility of a slimmer PS4, The Last Of Us: Part II's release, and some form of price drop.

Regardless of price cuts, major releases, revisions, etc 16 million is a great year for a consoles 6th year.

Ps4 so close to 90m.

Each day bring PS4 closer to be the best selling home console ever behind PS2.
