Switch LTD: 7,046,766

PS4 LTD: 7,735,616

PS4 crossed 7 million only last year for reference. Around September someone here called me crazy for saying that Switch will surpass PS4 before September 2019. Now it's on track to do it as early as July unless unless KH3 does something amazing. Just putting that out there. :)

The reason for two releases this week is that week 52 results were delayed a week.

Oh, and PS4 got a really nice boost this week too.

I gotta admit, you do a hell better job then what FireEmblem_Man with these Media Create threads.

Interesting the base PS4 is doing well over the Pro but Xbox One X is doing well over the base Xbox One.

It might take until Fall or the holidays. I expect PS4 to slow down quite a bit this year, especially if PS5 is announced in Spring.

The Switch is a beast in Japan and practically everywhere else as well. Nintendo has done an amazing job marketing and pushing the hybrid versatility. Smart moves.

You try to provoke them and you damn well know it. Always gotta add PS4 salty to get you're way. At least Techhog89 made it natural without adding salt :)

Since Sheep suddenly care about sales after 4 years of Wii U failure, why aren't they congratulating the PS4 on hitting 92 million units?

@SolidGame_basic: Because sales always matter, I can tell you the majority of damage control you cows were all last generation how games matter more when the Wii was dominating as well as the Xbox 360. But then the PS4 happened and cows flip flop Ed saying how sales matter more.

Also, since Wii U is gen 8 and a failure, Switch is Gen 9, and is dominating ww sales

It’s hilarious how salty Nintendo makes Cows but probably quite fitting considering that Sony themselves are likely still quite salty with how Nintendo ditched them back in the SNES days. 😂

@fedor: Imagine an alternate reality where Nintendo had the deal with Philips, and then backed out to partner with Sony. We could have had the Philips CD-I 2 and DVD-I! 👀

#43 Posted by Fedor (4889 posts) -

@Archangel3371: Of course. But it ended up with them having a highly successful console brand and Nintendo losing the rights to the PlayStation name. As well as them going with Phillips instead, which was a complete disaster. I doubt they care anymore, in fact they're most likely quite happy the deal didnt come to fruition.

@Archangel3371: The people that made the deal are no longer even around at Sony (not many left at Nintendo either) and either way, Sony came out on top. It's quite the stretch to think they care about a bad deal from 30 years ago that ended up being a huge net positive.

they came out on top? its a gen thing. they came out on top on consoles ps2/ps1. they have always lost in handheld space. and both xbox and sony made more money than them in the ps3 era.

ps4 gen they are doing well again. who knows next gen. nintendo has been in gaming since the 80's. who knows how long sony will even last.

a clear cut answer they won PERIOD is pretty near sighted.

@KBFloYd: What are you even talking about? I mean they won as in the PlayStation brand wouldn't even exist if the deal did go through. Furthermore, considering how badly the Phillips deal flopped, Sony probably wouldn't have been involved in gaming much at all after. Even more, The PlayStation brand is the main reason Sony is still even alive as a company today. I dont have a clue where your rant came from.
