On other hand, Switch had launch in March 2017. and launch always gave huge sales in any case, and January and February of this year shouldnt be strong in any case. So March of last year should easily be stronger than this years January and February.

 

PS4 in US and Japan is down YoY.

On other hand it wasn't severely supply constrained this year. 

Who and when was supply constrained?

Mario Kart 8 deluxe sold more in 2018 than it did in 2017...That's kinda crazy



Spiderman the highest selling exclusive this year. Mighty impressive.

Install base of Switch's grew more this year than last, and MK8 is still one of the best reasons to own a Wii U or Switch.

So what did sony ship in 2016 and 2017?

Can't remember.

I just know they shipped fewer units in FY 2017 than they did in FY 2016. But sold more units in 2017 CY than they did in 2016 CY.

Maybe someone with those numbers can put them up.

Sony leading in EU, water is wet. I'd be shocked if they ever didnt.

Congrats to Sony. UK was 360 land, and I was expecting something more from MS. X1 is a very good console, there's something I don't get. I think right now it deserves better sales !

Firesales can only get you so far. PS4 just has the stronger library, both in terms of 1st party exclusives and 3rd party titles (exclusive or not.)

I think 2019 will probably be the Switch Peak year... nintendo consoles usually dont peak in the later years, but in the earlier ones.
PS4 in its 6th year, wont be able to beat out the switch at its peak.

And yeah Playstation has alot of brand trust buildt up in europe, its gonna be hard for others to steal that away.
