    I didn't think PS4 would win. Deal was good but limited quantities and XBX launching. Wowza. Beast, etc. RIP Vita.

    The big news here is Super Mario Odyssey > Battlefront 2. It's missing digital but still.

    So they think that Switch sales overall, without counting in christmas sales will slow down over the next few month or am I reading this wrong?

    I wasn't expecting PS4 to dominate in november. Also surprised by third place for Switch.

    Gonna need to see some receipts, posting quotes isn't a source.

    Yikes. I thought Switch would be 2nd. Pretty sure I still had PS4 first in the predictions thread, though. That X1X bump, I guess.

    The switch trend is slowing down even right after Mario odyssey released?

    Not really, PS4 had some deep deals for Black Friday that made them fly of the shelf.

    Yeah, those $199 PS4's did exactly what I expected them to. Good to see console sales so strong.

    It's equity research so probably.

    Not discounting the Switch at all was a strange move. Knock 50 bucks off at least, come on.

    Surprised PS4 sold more despite the 1X launch, doesn’t bode well for Microsoft.

    So much for X will "save" xbox.

    Wow at PS4 winning. I was sure Xbox had it in the bag. Maybe there was a lot of BF stock for the PS4. Wonder how much they could have sold if they could have met demand.

    PS4 on top while there was new hardware from the competition is impressive.
    That $199 PS4 was sold out so quick.

    The power of Kingdom Hearts helping PS4 take 1st place.

    If this is true.

    I think it's talking about software sales, which seems reasonable to surmise at the moment simply because there's no big launches on the immediate horizon. The Direct might well affect this prediction depending on what sort of dates appear in it.

    They had supply problems so not really the time to cut the price

    It's 40% up YoY. I'm sure MS are considering that a big deal.
     
  26. #26
    Both consoles saw roughly 40% growth YoY

    If true this is excellent. Last november was pretty close if I remember well, something like what, 1,1 million for PS4 vs 1 million Xbox One ?

    It doesn't look like the Switch is slowing down anytime soon at all. If anything, I feel like it has just only started.

    i dunno if i trust this report....they seem to be suggesting that Sony's BF stock was enough to offset XB1S, XB1X and Switch at the same time. very dubious proposition there

    gonna wait for npd official

    When MS doesn't say anything about BF/Nov performance, you can kinda guess that PS4 will gonna to win Nov NPD.

    That makes more sense but I thought there were multiple reports that the Switch was the best selling item on Black Friday?

    So not official official obviously, but switch came in third for sure at least which is a bit surprising.

    Ps4 and xbox could be a toss up with only 10% difference.

    Am I the only one thinking PS4 being 2:1 the switch, a new console, is a bit...odd?

    About ~750-800k for Switch is a bit disappointing. PS4 and XB1 posted some impressive numbers.

    I thought XB1 would be first because of 1X. That $200 PS4 must of sold a ton. There also was Call of Duty and Star Wars PS4's though.

    I thought Switch had stock going into the holiday? Or are sales that low because of no deals maybe?

    1X was sold out all over the place and PS4s for $199 were selling like water, December will really show which console is most in demand.

    Not sure if this takes digital retailers into account, which was where that data for Switch came from.

    Not really if Switch was supply limited.

    Sony can probably push way more PS4s to market in a given time frame at this point.

    Is still possible considering PS4 sold out the day before Black Friday.

    Xbox outlook is not good tbh. early in the year people were claiming S sales slowdown was in anticipation of Scorpio, now X released and had Zero effect on PS4 momentum.

    what amazed me is how PS4 managed to absorb X and Switch launches and show growth YoY.

    This is talking about NPD, looking at it from WW perspective is even more impressive for PS4 and tragic for Xbox and Switch.

    Switch was not supply limited and hasn't been for the past couple of months.

    People thinking a 499$ console would top sales against another which was 199$ are concern trolling, no other explanation possible
