Division was an example.

PS4 release schedule

January 18-Ace Combat 7

January 25-Resident Evil 2

January 29-Kingdom Hearts

February 4-Apex Legends

February 15-Jump Force

February 15-Far Cry: New Dawn

February 15-Metro Exodus

February 22-Anthem

March 8-Devil May Cry 5

March 15-The Division 2

Switch release schedule

January 11-New Super Mario Bros. Deluxe

If Switch has sold on par/better than PS4 in a time where it's going through a bit of a dry spell versus PS4 getting notable releases nearly every week than the gap will be pretty notable later this year.

Disregarding the sales topic, your post sums up why I've got a PS4 and no Switch.

So many different games to play on my PS4 <3. While Switch has yet another old Mario 2D.

Well it's a bit of a slow period for Switch, I wouldnt really consider the first 2.5 months of 2019 to be indicative of the overall Switch library or release schedule. I also didnt include smaller scale titles which is something Switch gets in abundance.

All consoles go through a slow period, PS4 is usually in the summer while this year and last year it has been late Winter/early Spring for Switch.

And to think, it only took about 2 years for the PS4 to get to that point.

It seems to me that slow periods are more common on Nintendo side. PlayStation side can have 10-12 consecutive weeks with consistent solid releases many times in a generation, almost every year, while on Nintendo's side, it's rather rare.



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There is only one really slow period, and that was the start of 2018 last year.  The PS4 has a heavy start to 2019, but Switch is packed for April and beyond.  It is also worth noting that considering the later half of 2018 had so much coming to Switch in of itself, I am still playing games from that period.

So all in all, your claims that Switch lacks variety and offers nothing to play is unfounded.  My wishlist is packed full of games I will never have time to play.

The Nintendo Switch is in need of new releases it seems. It got outsold by the PS4, (which got many great games so far).

Nah,new hardware. If the Switch Pro and Switch Mini are coming, and as soon as Summer, Switch is going to do some crooked numbers the rest of the year.

The new Pokemon game wont hurt though either.

At this point I think Switch has 2019 and 2020 on lock down. After that things will get interesting again.

You have a good point. Now that people have moved into that line of expectation, I suspect Switch sales (especially after E3) will be abysmally bad, followed by absurdly good sales after the new versions have released.

I'm not claiming anything about lacking variety and nothing to play. I was talking about myself. It offers nothing to play FOR ME. Damm, You're the Nintendo warrior all the time, relax. You're quite annoying to be honest.

And, no you're absolutely wrong. All in all, Nintendo has so many draughts, it's not even a joke anymore. Since Wii days. Every year, Nintendo has huge slow periods of 4 to 5 months. That's me claming now.

Nintendo is the queen, king and lord of draughts.

It should be noted that the PS4 has entered its 6th year, it's impressive for such an old system.

I defended the PS4 when it had nothing to play in its 1st two years, so dunno what you are talking about.  I swear I have officially been labled every type of "company warrior" on this site lol.  Maybe I need to take up phone gaming and make it truly complete.

But really, I just know BS when I see it.  When you claim that you are only talking about your personal taste and not overall, and then immediately contradict yourself by claiming that Nintendo has droughts on a regular basis as fact, well you pretty much negate your entire premise.  The Switch has only had one real drought, and I already mentioned it.  There was none in 2017 and looks to be none in 2019.  And it is not like there has not been Sony droughts as well, as I went through it when PS4 was my sole primary for the first 4 years of its life.  But what do I know, I am just a Nintendo warrior according to you.

My personal opinion: PS4 has much more variety than Nintendo. I don't have anything to play on Nintendo. Including considering the last 10 weeks. PS4 is just ruling the last 10 weeks in terms of solid releases. That's what I replied in the first place to the user who made that wonderful list of releases.

Then you said this: "your claims that Switch lacks variety and offers nothing to play..." Well, I've never claimed that.

I did not get here and said "Hey guys, guess what, Nintendo offers nothing to play and that's a fact". Never claimed that as fact. Never.

But since it seems to me that you want a claim, here's my claim: Nintendo is the queen, king and lord of draughts.

Now you can debunk my claim all you want, write a white paper, I don't care, not gonna discuss this anyway.

But, as a matter of fact, the claim that Nintendo is top 1 in draughts is totally different than I personally don't have anything to play on Nintendo. Can you see the difference?

Besides I was just replying to someone who post a list of solid releases of PS4 and I commented that that's why I love PS4 and I've got no love for Nintendo. That list summed up the reason I prefer PS4. And preference is personal. It was an innocent reply to someone. Not claiming anything. So, relax and get out of my excitement for PS4 and all its wonderful releases that makes me so glad.



God bless You.
