Forums - Sales Discussion - October NPD: Switch 736k, XBO 68K, PS4 39K

Pikmin 3 flopped hard. Sad.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

That year to date software chart looks more believable, because it's true obviously, than whatshisname saying Jedi Fallen Order was the second best selling game this year. I don't know what that was about.

All NPD software charts exclude digital sales of games published by Take Two (2K/Rockstar), Bethesda (Doom), and Nintendo (various).  Take Two stopped allowing digital sometime this summer.  Nintendo/Bethesda never allowed it as far as I know.

Hardly.Considering the competition it had in October, the fact that NPD tracked only 2 days of sales(for Pikmin), and that Nintendo dosen't share digital sales, it should have done well enough.

It's not breaking any records in the US, but it most likely is doing well enough. In either case, it seems that the game is doing especially well in Japan, so it's not like not doing super well on one region will doom it.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

So freaking weird seeing Xbox One so far ahead of PS4.I get that it's mostly down to stock, but still.

Also, dunno what people were expecting from Pikmin 3, it's a 7 year old port from a series that was never huge to begin with.

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

Honestly if the PS4 is slowing down this fast then I may need to lower my lifetime sales expectation, especially since there doesn't seem to be Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals on hardware. I thought it would reach 125 mil, but now I may need to lower that to 120 mil. So yes that means I think they'll only ship 7 mil more consoles before calling it quits.

Yeah it will be interesting to see where PS4 settles; for years now I had its final tally pegged at between 130 and 140 million, but perhaps I overestimated it.

Yikes at those XBO and PS4 sales. Thats what next gen does to ya.



Damn, low PS4. XBO has been here for a few months, now. And looks like there are no BF deals for them, either. Not sure if XBO will crawl past 50M. PS4 should still do 120M. Wonder if Sony has any plans for a price cut next year. Personally, I'd drop it to $199 and just keep it stocked for one more year. But, they may just be totally focusing on PS5 and just putting out PS4s from their automated factory, making the huge profit off of that HW at $299.



wow this is a massacre. Switch 19x ps4 sales....
