Interesting, only 9.8% growth compared to last year even if the system was selling at $199/299 this year compared to $299/399 last year on the pokemon release week.

Uh, no?

The standard one has always been $299. This year has an option for a $199 version, but only for part of the year and the main game the Lite will be sold on JUST came out. Give it time. That 9.8% growth gap is going to explode in the next few months in my opinion.

The let’s go bundle was $399. And I was referring to the same week that let’s go launched. Of course it will see an increase in the upcoming weeks.

The Let's Go Bundle was $100 more than the standard console even though it is a $60 game? I'm confused if that was the case.

Wow, PS4 is down an abysmal 45% from the same week last year. I guess its sales are collapsing.

Oh wait, Black Friday is one week later this year, so that comparison makes no sense. Let's Go released one week before Black Friday, Sword and Shield released two weeks before. Obviously the week closer to Black Friday has an advantage in sales.



Kaboom.

So much for the notion that Pokemon players already bought a Switch for Let's Go and that as a result the first core Pokemon on Switch wouldn't be a system seller.

More than 7 Switches sold this week for every Xbox One and more than 2 for every PS4.



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

Plus Switch on track to be the #1 console in the UK in 2019. Now we only need some news from Germany and Switch could pull off the sweep in the five biggest video game markets in 2019 (USA, Japan, UK, France, Germany).



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Switch is about to kick Xbox into 3rd Place.

It also came with the Pokeball accessory which was $50 on its own.
