PS4 is a freaking beast. Even now the switch, a new console, can't even outsell it worldwide. Crazy!

Not Nintendo consoles though. The Wii peaked in its first full year in Japan, ditto for the N64 on the US, Wii-U and GC lost steam quickly as well. Their platforms tend to be more frontloaded than the competition.

My point was never about lifetime sales... so that means nothing. All I said was that the Ps4 and Switch are both beasting. I think and hope both consoles do well. Jeez... why is everyone so upset?

A good sign for the current games-industry :) Interesting article. The PS4 will break even more records, that is sure. Especially Christmas 2017 & 2018. In January alone, the jrpg-highlight Ni No Kuni 2, the biggest Monster Hunter World of all time with great graphic and Dragon Ball Fighters Z appear. Europe has a good game-taste :) Its very exciting how high the PS4 records will be.
