No one was saying that was not the case.  Not sure what this has to do with Japan sales.

 

Nintendo owns Japan

Sony Owns Europe

Nintendo and Sony trade off in the US, with MS not far behind

 

Nothing new, funny how you felt the need to drag sales outside of Japan into the discussion though.

Having a high bar for itself doesn't make the conversation not applicable.

Nintendo haven't dominated USA since SNES. PS1, PS2, X360 and PS4 (with X1 really close) have won USA.

I haven't dragged sales outside Japan as I didn't put any numbers. I just said that the fact that only Sony itself would be able to come close to their top rankers don't make we stop comparing PS4 to its top rankers ever since day 1. So not sure why that would be a problem to compare Switch to Nintendo top rank ranking in Japan.

Wait. You're expecting PS4 to outsell both Wii and PS1?

WW for sure

Is that the top 5 in Japan?

WW. Fair enough. I just thought you were talking about Japan, given the nature of the thread.

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

Brilliant idea, they should've made PS4 to be a probtable instead of home console after huge success of previous protable system.

Nah ps4 is a profit making machine on a global basis. They were right to do what they did. If they cared for Japan a Switch like device was the way to go. They cared just not enough. Maybe the ps5 will get a portable sku that streams games to it. 

I feel like he's trying to start a different conversation, and admire how you are handling this one.

Wii sold most in US last gen, around 50m in US alone. Switch could easily sell more than PS4 and espacily more than XB1 in US.

Smart man. The ps4 holds all the aces. You can't 1 up a ps4 fan this gen. You need to nit pick certain markets and that doesn't really work when the WW market is playstations. 



Nice, 10M should come quickly.

Nahhh I don't think any Playstation console will get anywhere near to top their previous numbers in Japan.

Gues you could use this site to check your numbers.

Wii sold 45.5M on North America, so USA only probably less than 40M. X360 sold 49.11 so around 45M. How did Wii sold most in US last gen?

Switch sure could sell more than PS4, but easily? Aren't you reaching a little?

I'll reiterate. Last 4 gens Nintendo never dominated USA market. It was PS1, PS2, X360 and now PS4 (with X1 really close).



duduspace11 "Well, since we are estimating costs, Pokemon Red/Blue did cost Nintendo about $50m to make back in 1996"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wii_sales

Nintendo shipped 48.68m Wii units in Americas.

Can you gave me officall source for 360 sales?

 

Well Switch is selling more than PS4 in US same time period (with December results), so yeah Switch could sell more than PS4 in US and espacily more than XB1 that sold less than PS4.

Saying he's reaching only a little is reaching! Xbox won the US last gen. Not the Wii.

I am not reaching because his Wii numbers are wrong like I wrote above, Wii sold 48.7m in Americas, not 45.5m and in same time he didnt proved me any proof for 360 sales. You also sound very confident, can you gave me some facts that proves that Xbox 360 sold more than Wii in US?
