To be fair, while I might have usually agreed with this, the Switch's lead is probably bigger than is actually being reported in this chart. It doesn't look as significant as it probably is/was. 

So it kind of makes sense why people are so impressed by the PS4 in that regard. The difference doesn't seem as great and it's also a very old console.



What the hell happened to xbox?

December is 5 months, not 4.

Last year PS4 sid 1.08m with Cyber Monday and $50 off Slim & Pro for 1 week each.

This year Cyber Monday was in November and they had no discounts on either PS4 model so under 1 million is very, very likely.

No wonder it feels like christmas decorations had been up for so bloody long this year...

 

On topic though, those are pretty awesome numbers, would imagine that the sales of the Nintendo online service went up a lot as well now that there are 2 must play online games from Nintendo on the Switch.

Whoops, I meant weeks lol

Please, not this. The console peaked just one year ago, we all know how console sales work. 

It's way more impressive to see the Switch sell 1/10 of Wii U's LT sales in one week .

But why? Wii U sold like shit, you are just making up a random reason why it's more impressive.

I'm trying to give you an inch but you're taking a mile. 

I agree with you, it's just also understandable why some people think the PS4's sales are also impressive. Most weeks that kind of attitude annoys me as well, but here it's kind of understandable. The PS4 is just a beast of longevity. 

I think the battle is more so lifetime than it is week by week anyways, what will be more interesting is how much sales Switch can keep in year 4-6.
