Should I sell my PS4 and add another 200$ to buy RX 5700 XT or don't sell PS4 and get a Switch Lite hmm...

My good old GTX 970 is crying running RDR2

It sounds like you still really enjoy your PS4 so I'd say hang onto it, in the past I have almost always regretted selling/giving away consoles. 

I would definitely recommend picking up a Switch, it has accumulated quite a strong lineup of exclusives by this point.

I do yeah but to be fair PS5 will be backwards compatible, I could sell my PS4 and start saving up for PS5 in November, the only game I'd really regret not playing on release date would be TLOU 2.

Ah, I totally forgot that. Is it officially confirmed PS5 will be 100% backward compatible with PS4 or is that still just speculation?



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

Wasn't European number for Nintendo Switch too low in that chart?
335,304

The actual sales number for Nintendo Switch BF in the UK and Spain is 170k and already more than half of that number without the biggest European market "France" for the Nintendo system and Germany the same as the UK in term of market share for Nintendo system.

I think the actual number would be closer to 500k than 300k.

Yeah it should be quite a bit higher based on UK+Spain

We got numbers from Spain and they are ~70k?



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

Those are the preliminary numbers from the vandal.net radio podcast

NSW ~70k

PS4 ~35k

XB1 >10k



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

They're working on it. But it's not confirmed to be coming, yet atleast. Below a statement from Sony to Famitsu 2 months ago.

‘Currently, the dev team is putting all power on verifying whether they can secure a complete compatibility. Please wait for more information’.

At this point they better get it done, the outrage will be intense if they don't.

In light of recent info I'd say wait and see if they confirm 100% PS4 backwards compatibility for PS5. If/when it's confirmed, if you do plan to pick up a PS5 early on, then yeah I'd say go ahead and sell your PS4, whoever ends up with it will hopefully enjoy it as much as you clearly have.

Maybe some kid who can't afford to spend $300 for a new one will really appreciate it. :)

After adjustments, Switch sold 1,815,259 this week, making it the highest week for any individual console since Christmas week 2009 in which DS sold 1,830,678 and Wii sold 1,823,190.



If I am reading this HW chart right, the adjustments pushed the Switch up to the highest Global November of all time.  Ahead of DS 2009.

Sign of things to come for Dec and 2020.



NS adjusted numbers are mindblowing! Ninty did it again, and mixing it with home consoles in the hybrid, saved the portable from mobile attack.
