Incase anyone's curious, BF Week records for each console!

Global

PS4 - 1.68m (2017)
DS - 1.63m (2008)
Switch - 1.63m (2019)
Wii - 1.35m (2008)
360 - 1.31m (2011)
XBO - 1.21m (2015)
PS3 - 844k (2011)
3DS - 844k (2011)
PSP - 500k (2008)
WiiU - 472k (2012)
Vita - 221k (2012)

USA

360 - 1061k (2011)
PS4 - 927k (2017)
DS - 891k (2009)
Switch - 830k (2019)
XBO - 809k (2017)
Wii - 766k (2008)
PS3 - 499k (2011)
3DS - 495k (2011)
WiiU - 421k (2012)
PSP - 221k (2008)
Vita - 143k (2012)

Switch loses Global to only the PS4 and DS! (DS outsold the Switch by 211 units... xD) When it comes to the USA though, it's going to take a lot for the 360's BF record to ever be broken.

Oh and if anyone is wondering why WiiU seems so high, that's also it's launch week. It's best Black Friday other than that is in the 200k's.

Good numbers all around in USAj Just as some people were anticipating, so not many surprises then.

Seeing worldwide numbers, Switch did better than last year, XBO did pretty similar to last year and PS4 ended with a 30% drop. I supose i expected better from Europe....

Are those numbers from this site or from other sources?

Main reason Xbox One didn't have the same drop as the PS4 was the cheap Xbox One S All-Digital deals.

Switch 830k USA number is from Nintendo, everything else is VGC.

I dont think PS4 had as big of deals in EU as it did in US.

We got UK numbers and XB1 was first with a little over 100k, NSW was 2nd with just over 100k as well, and PS4 was in a distant 3rd with about 60k.

Yeah yeah, i know. XBO did 100k in UK when PS4 did 60k, and i guess XBO SAD did very well in USA too. That bundle/deal with XBO SAD has made wonders saleswise for Microsoft. But i still expected more from PS4 in Europe. A little bit disappointed.

Yeah PS4 deals weren't good, the main BF deal I saw for PS4 in uk was a 500gb with God of War, Horizon and Uncharted for £199.99.

Hard to compete with a 1TB XBO S Digital that was basically half the price.

PS4 usually gets less of a boost than Xbox or Switch, due to less aggressive bundles from Sony.

This data pretty much seems to confirm what i was expecting from weeks/months:

Switch is going to end around 20'5M in 2019, PS4 around 14'5M in 2019 and XBO with less than 5'0M in 2019. That will put Switch around 50'0M sold lifetime and PS4 around 106'0-106'5M. As for XBO i still anticipating it won't reach 50M worldwide before next Xbox launch.
