Forums - Sales Discussion - VGChartz Gap Charts September 2019 Discussion Thread

Man, I'd love a comparison between the Switch and the GBA, the DS is too much of a beast for the Switch to beat, and the 3DS seems to offer little competition.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Quick question. Should I make a new forum thread for each month or keep using this thread and just update the title and first post?

New one each month

Yeah, I'm with Zorg and Rol; new thread for each monthly set of charts.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

It's more inviting for discussion than an ongoing megathread.

Again thank you for the responses. I'll make a new thread for each month (and as long as I remember link back to previous threads.)

I like the idea of having a new one each month, with links to previous months like the amazon discussion thread that Marth does.

Switch vs 3DS and Wii U in the US – VGChartz Gap Charts – September 2019 

 

Switch Vs. 3DS and Wii U USA:

Gap change in latest month: 266,348 - Switch

Gap change over last 12 months: 1,395,231 - Switch

Total Lead: 373,002 - Switch

Switch Total Sales: 13,597,458

3DS and Wii U Total Sales: 13,224,456

Booya. This used to be a common stick used to beat the Switch with back in 2017-2018, that because it was a successor to both Wii U and 3DS it was only successful if it outsold both combined. Well...

Yep but now its gonna be, "well it was always expected to sell 90+ million because that's what 3DS+Wii U did!!!"

Or "but now that it's the only handheld around so it needs to outsell 3DS+Wii U+Vita"

It does have a chance of outselling those 3 combined. The PS Vita doesn't add that much to the total. If the Switch gets too far ahead of the 3DS and Wii U I can add the PS Vita. 

I think it has a chance as well, I'm just saying that's something the detractors would resort to if it beats 3DS+Wii U but not 3DS+Wii U+Vita.

And of course no matter how well it does they will always be able to gloat about it not passing DS+Wii.

Xbox One vs PlayStation 3 in the US – VGChartz Gap Charts – September 2019

XOne Vs. PS3 US:

Gap change in latest month: 78,193 – PS3

Gap change over last 12 months: 341,435 – PS3

Total Lead: 3,809,943 - XOne

XOne Total Sales: 25,821,271

PS3 Total Sales: 22,011,328

Now this one is really interesting; maybe it's cos I'm so used to seeing Xbone getting trounced in the charts, but it's surprising to see its still significantly outperforming PS3 in America, and on the verge of outselling Sony's last gen console lifetime.
