Getting so close to beating the SNES. Less than 2M to go!

If sales are flat for the Switch for the rest of the year it will the SNES the last week of 2019.

XBox One outselling the PS4 in Americas is quite surprising!

Xbox One outsold PS4 last December as well in North America. This is due to Microsoft having better deals.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of MS at all, but Sony's deals just were not there this holiday season.

I don't think the sales gap between the two in the US has ever been that big. It's just that for some reason Europe either really likes Sony or really dislikes Microsoft, and I don't think sales have even reached a quarter of a million in Japan.

It seems that PS4 sales go down a bit faster than I expected. PS3 sold 560K in the week ending December 15, 2012 (one year before PS4 launch, mainly because PS Move).

That's because PS3 had superslim revision in 2012 and also had price cut with it.
Also the other part of the year PS4 did better, so in total 2019 PS4 will be better than 2012 PS3.
Sony had to do a superslim or at least price cut and make some good christmas and blackfriday deals .. but they didn't.

Move was released in 2010. If the Move had any long term positive effects on PS3 sales, it was long over by then. There are no move exclusive games in the top 50, so I doubt that was the main reason it was selling.
