Re: Console sales


Couple months ago Sony stopped publishing their sales numbers and that has caused trouble to Video Game Charts site and therefore me.
For years their console and game sales information has been (mostly) reliable and week or two old. Now their numbers are from two months back and have moved on a week in last month.

To one like me who finds console wars exciting to follow, this is very frustrating to follow.
No news is bad news here.
Also I'm worried about the whole site, VGC is one my favorite places in net and if this key feature fails they may lose a lot of users.


On the topic, current generation is in situation that PS4 had sold about as much as Wii U and XBox One combined.



Edit: fortunately VGC seems to be back in business, though it remains to be seen how regularly

Re: Console sales


Xbox One was expected to make a big charge this christmas, maybe even win the season, but looks like PS4 holds strong.

Christmas sales don't seem to help Wii U much, Nintendo is still falling behind.

We're likely entering next year still in situation that PS4 has sold as much as XOne and Wii U combined.


Handheld sales, both total and current, are 4-to-1 to 3DS against Vita.

Re: Console sales


PS4 won another christmas and now it's selling more than all Nintendo and MS consoles combined.

I think we can declare the winner for this generation.
And loser, with Nintendo NX round the corner...

Re: Console sales


First the question of this generation was whether Xbox could yet catch PlayStation.
Then is was a question of whether PlayStation might sell as much as Xbox and Wii U combined.
Now it's time to ask if PlayStation will sell twice as much as Xbox.

Re: Console sales


Things haven't changed much since last comments, except for Nintendo Switch entering the game.

PS4 seems to be on the way to past 100 million, around the Wii numbers.
XOne is close to X360, but now falling behind (thanks to Switch), so I'd guess... 70 million?
Wii U is dead below 15, Switch has started strong and will likely sell more, maybe 30? Depends on when next generation appears.

3DS is starting to lose to PSP, but should end up close - again depending next gen.
Vita is soon dead, barely beating Wii U.
