When it says the Switch is up 20% year on year, I assume that includes the first 2 months of both years. Since the Switch wasn't released until March 2017, the sales might actually be down if the 2018 numbers also started in March. Just thought that should be noted.

Yea but it still got the launch which clearly doesn't count as a normal month since they sold so much in 1 month. Also, there is no way it will be down from 2017 with all the stock issues it had.. there was week where the Switch was under 100k while this year it's barely under 200k with a drought and there is games coming...

Looks like even with MHW, GoW and fornite the ps4 is still down from last year. Don't think it will get better with how well it sold last year in June with Crash and the gold edition. Think 2017 will be the peak of the PS4. While i have your downvotes im also going to add the Switch will outsell it this year.

It's just barely behind. If Sony did a permanent price drop to $199, its start selling much better than it already is. Not really much of a point though, since it's still selling extremely well. Kindof goofy to brag about a fairly new console outselling one th

Kindof goofy to brag about a fairly new console outselling one that is more than half through its 5th year, don't you think?

Heum that's crazy, they will start with a 250$ price before a permanent 200$. I don't even think a 200$ pricetag will happen for the PS4 before the PS5 is out, and that could honestly not help the PS5 sell so they might never do it lol.
