Aren't those early reports always by units though? The MagicPork ratios are at least, maybe they have both.

Pokémon outselling RDR isn't surprising though, since it's probably retail only and with those Pokéball bundles.

Ok ... I'll be honest. I'm too stupid to understand the meaining of those Pokemon names next to the systems of them.

E: Oh, the numbers of the Pokedex entries. Ok.

It was a very close month.

Switch: Voltorb
3DS: Rattata
PS4: Koffing
XBO: Kingler
Other: Vulpix

YoY:
Switch: +75%
3DS: -39%
PS4: -13%
XBO: -3%
Other: -6%

The top-selling titles (physical only) were RDR2, Black Ops 4 and Pokemon Let's go Pikachu/Eevee
Hmm.

Switch: 1360K
PS4: 1480K
XBO: 1340K

Maybe?

All above 1M! Great drops for XBO and PS4 from last year IMO.

EDIT: All probably 5-10K too high.

Unless 0 PS4 Pros or anything other than Spider-Man bundles were sold, it's not like that.
The vast majority of sales should be Spider-Man, though. 80-20 share wouldn't surprise me. They would mean a $240 average selling price (assuming the other 20% is fully PS4 PRO), so that would put units at about Switch: PS4 = 5:6 or better for Switch

Edit: I see Magicpork blessed us with numbers already!

XB1 did really, really well. I don't even think it was too aggressive with bundles, either, right?

Switch being up 75% YoY is exactly what it needed, so great job there. Now to sell 2.5M in December ;)

November 18 has a tough comp vs November 17.
Combined hardware unit sales in November 17 were highest since November 11.
(my comp ignores plug & play hardware).
I'm impressed. Nov 18 is higher than Nov 17 in terms of units.

Also, PS4 LTD is now officially higher than PS3 LTD in the US.

I think $399 was just a really appealing price point for the XBX. I considered just grabbing one while in the Best Buy checkout line and I have no need for one at all ATM.

Yeah, last year XBO and PS4 sales declined in December compared to November while Switch sold twice more.
It will be interesting to witness how Switch will perform in December compared to November.

Thanks Pork for deliver again.

I'm really impressed with Xbox One being just -3% YoY, deals this year weren't so great and last year was the X debut.

PS4 and Switch sold in line with my expectations. A good month for the big 3.
