Ps4 is still going strong. Should have no problem beating the Wii.

Interesting side note. VG Charges predicts 1.67 million Switch Units on Store Shelves and 1.6 million PS4 Units on Store Shelves.

I might be missing something because you're the second person I've seen say 1.6m switchs on shelves, but 19.67-18.3 means 1.37m switch's on shelves.

Good numbers that got carried a lot by a strong GoW performance. Upcoming weeks are going to be harder for PS4 because no high profile title is coming out until Spiderman in September. I dont think the remakes/remasters and annual sports games are going to move much hardware at this point in the lifecycle.

No doubt it’s still leading the pack in sales numbers though. We should be getting June NPD soon. It will be very interesting if PS4 still manages to come out on top, despite having a “not so great” E3.

I am absolutely sure PS4 has June. But it has fallen off a bit in July if the NPD prediction tool is accurate.

PS4 still going so strong it's scary yet makes perfect sense. Love the library and it's the only 8th gen console I own as I have no need for a switch and Xbone since PS4 gets most of the games on the market + a flood of exclusives.
