Forums - Sales Discussion - Global Hardware 15 December 2018

Great showing for the Switch. It's so nice to see Nintendo back on top even if it is just for a month. In the Wii U days, so many people were saying that Nintendo was finished in the home console business and if it were any other company, they would be. The Switch has got to be one of the most impressive turnarounds for a console developer in gaming history.

Official: PS4 sells 91'6M lifetime, 5'6M during holiday season, Spiderman sold 9M, just annouced at CES....


Edit: That puts PS4 in 18M for 2018. I expected more sales from Spiderman to be honest....

Edit 2: LOL, Spiderman sales are until Nov 25, so no disappointed at all.

Well I made my guess on the mark early 2018.

PS4 has been adjusted down in the US and in-turn the rest of North America for December 8 and 15. 

New PS4 figures in the US:

Dec 8 - 228,520

Dec 15 - 236,620

New PS4 figures worldwide:

Dec 8 - 785,784

Dec 15 - 803,717

Now that looks closer to reality. Thank You! 

And another 1mil+ for Switch! 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Holy smokes, Switch > PS4 + Xbone hardware combined.

Nintendo may have pissed away Jan-Oct this year but their holiday performance is insane.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

91.6 sold through, wow and cudos Sony

Also worth notice are the 5.6M sold through during the holiday season alone, meaning in their terms between November 19 and December 31.

Last year it was 5'7M from Nov 20 - Dec 31 if i remember correctly, so they basically did the same as last year. Knowing that PS4 did more during BF last year in USA than this year, could mean PS4 did better in December this year in USA, or maybe, it just simply did better in Europe or rest of the world....

Damn XBO had a horrible year

XBO will be ~8m by the end of the year. Not as good as the PS4 but it's still selling enough to end up outselling the SNES next yeat.

Probably Europe, as sales were lagging behind there throughout the year.



Switch need 2 million next week and 1.4 in the last of the year to get to 10 million in september/december period.
Seems very unlikely, but Go switch!
