PS4 is so far ahead it can't even see the others anymore :D

Even NPD in North America couldn't save the Xbox One in Europe.

I wonder what Nintendo would need to appeal to the market to draw more users in from Europe. Its seeing record sales in Italy and France so maybe its mainly the UK

If you look at Europes biggest gaming markets, then Nintendo wasn't of that big importance for a very long time. Being quite late in most of the markets and especially UK and more so Germany having a heavy focus on home computers in the eighties and early nineties, Sega putting some efforts in the british market and PC being very strong early on in Germany, Nintendos situation was always way more difficult than in the US.

I actually think they do pretty well right now. Especially if you keep in mind that Switch costs 329,-€ right now without game. Officially 379,-€ for the SMO bundle. You could get Xbox One S consoles for 199,-€ with no games and i remember at least one deal with four or five games for 249,-€ while i was relatively lucky to get my SMO bundle for 349,-€.
Bottom line, Switch is freaking expensive right now and still selling decently. If Nintendo cut the price it would leave Xbox One far behind.

Nintendo never really seems to do so hot in Europe.


WhatATimeToBeAlive (on 13 January 2018)

Europe prefers "hardcore" games more than other areas (excluding FIFA).

Right, the DS only sold 50 million in Europe. What a failure.

Oops, completely forgot about that lol. I guess I was referring to more the performance of the 3DS, Wii U, and Switch compared to other regions and competitors.

Ryng_Tolu (on 13 January 2018)

God lord, XB1 outselling Switch by almost 2:1 in Europe is so bullshit lol. Not even in USA the gap was that big, and i should believe it was in Europe? There are 3 things: 1) XB1 is overtracked 2) Switch is undertracked 3) Both of the above (the most likely lol) Nintendo official financal results are gonna be fun.


Errorist76 (on 13 January 2018)

XBox in general is heavily overtracked in Europe on here.

Cool, doesn't change there is no way he beat Switch by that much, honestly i would be surprised if it even beat Switch by one units. XB1 is dead outside of UK

Xbox sales make in the UK make up 30% of Europe sales and we know on the 1X launch week the XB1 sold around 120k so the XB1 definitely did over 200k in November so the 600k+ VGC makes sense. The Switch might be under tracked though.

Ryng_Tolu (on 14 January 2018)

XB1 in UK sells like 50% of EU sales, not 30%, VGC massive overtrack XB1.

XBox One X launch week was 80K not 120K.

jason1637 (on 14 January 2018)

Errorist76 the 1X sold 80k and the XB1 sold 40k that wekk so Xbox sales during Xbox one x week was 120k.
Ryng, We know Xbox One sales by the end of 2016 was around 26 million and that the XBO was at ~15.7m in the US which leaves 10.6 RoW. The XB1 should be around ~3m by the end of 2016 so that's around 30%.

Do you realize RotW is not Europe? Do you realize US is only 85% of NA, and there are also many others counties?

I know Switch can't beat PS4 sales in Europe, but Switch has been selling well and constant, that means more people begin to know the quality of nintendo products.


WhatATimeToBeAlive (on 13 January 2018)

Switch is not doing that great in Europe. I don't think next year is going to be any better (unless the new Pokemon game turns out to be a mega hit like Pokemon Go).
