I think they might. At least announce it at this E3.

 I can see both announced by then.

Maybe. I just don't see a reason for Sony to hurry.

 They definitely want to keep up in this regard, though. If nothing else, just show off some form of new hardware.

PS4 with Kingdom Hearts 3 and RE2? It's shouldn't have been this close, or hell, just below the Switch.

My thoughts exactly, kinda expected PS4 to obliterate Switch, especially with how relatively slow Switch's January and February have been. I guess more than anything it's a telling sign that it's time for PS5 to be ushered in. Still though, great numbers for both.  It's just a tad surprising.

They probably want to see what move MS makes first. It worked wonders with the PS4. I think MS are more "desperate" at this point though.

It would be really weird for Switch to go from absolute domination in December to getting obliterated in January.

 Sony was actually first to announce this gen, so at this point, I can see them doing that again. Who actually drops first is still much in the air.

Not necessarily, we've seen similar things happen before for Nintendo. It's just that with KH3 and RE2 I expected the hardware sales for PS4 to far surpass the effect of a game released almost 2 months prior. I don't think there's anything weird about that curiosity. 



Switch closing in on 31 million units!! Suck it, Gamevice!! :D

Can you give me any examples of those times where Nintendo went from dominating to being dominated from one month to the next?

My issue with your previous comment was "obliterate", expecting PS4 to sell better than Switch in weeks with major releases makes sense but expecting it to obliterate Switch is not realistic.

Just one more week and we will have a nice round ratio of 3 PS4 for 1 Switch sold.
