oof AC with the drop, finally done?

Selling double the amount weekly than smash and Pokémon combined aligned? Nope lol



It's official.  PS4 is now selling worse than 3DS.  We've been saying 3DS is done for a while now.  What does that make PS4?

As soon as I saw AC numbers had dropped I knew Switch numbers had dropped too.  You can do this calculation every week 

AC + RFA is approx. Switch sales

This week its
42,863 (AC) + 30,689 (RFA) = 73,552
Switch sales = 70,129

People are buying the Switch mostly for AC and RFA as long as Switches are available.

Never thought I’d see the day that the PS4 would be outsold by the 3DS in 2020.

Will the PS4 reach 10 million LTD in Japan at this point? Even with all the remaining big games releasing at this point, the sales just seemed to decline. Lack of stock doesn’t help.

It was never going to hit 10 million 



3DS outsold PS4!?!? Oh myyyy...



Ouch, 3DS outselling the PS4 now?

I really hope for Sony that they don't also run out of consoles before the next gen starts like the XBO did



Sony does not bother with Japan anymore.

I wonder if that extends to the rest of Asia as well.
And even then their PS4 production has been slowed down a lot worldwide to make room for the PS5.

Still seems weird that Sony wants to kill such a profitable product so early.
