I guess that the switch now remains at 400k and then when pokémon snap comes back to 470k and then continue to stay at 400k

Sony and Microsoft aren't just good enough to compete with Nintendo, not even together, man! This is crazy!

"not good enough". 1st u need to consider that these new consoles are nowhere to be found on the market. Many of my friends, still wait their November preorder...

No. You're exactly giving me the reason: they are not good enough then to compete in this industry my friend.

Hey, I like Nintendo as much, if not more than the next guy but Sony and Microsoft are more than good enough to compete. They need to sort out stock issues and get more compelling software on their platforms. Give them time. Switch is trucking on years of built up momentum.

So where can I find your comments that Nintendo can't compete during the Wii U gen.

Yes, you're right the wii u was a commercial failure, it had some very good games though, but hey, let's don't forgive that the 3ds got both good games and sales.

my point is it's easy to say stuff like like not good enough but now isn't that time, it's a testament to the new consoles despite all the issues that face a console launch being magnified by covid we see sales records being broken, and then we have the Switch tracking to be Nintendo's biggest success ever and having a legitimate shot at PS2's crown.

All three are successful, that shows that the industry as a whole
has grown.

Compete in sales when there's production issues due to semiconductors. At least gamers who buy a ps5 and an Xbox are gamers who want to actually play games on them rather than the majority of switch owners who own it to play roblox

Everything down from a year ago. Was that the last time PS4 put up such strong numbers?

Taking a quick look at our PS4 estimates that is the highest PS4 sales we have for 2020. Following weeks for PS4 in 2020 are 329,729 for Apr 18, 295,380 for Apr 25, 239,997 for May 2, and 191,440 for May 9. The pandemic did wonders in boosting video game sales.

It is crazy how PS4 supply and Sony's willingness to pushed it collapsed later in the year.
