Represents Change in Market Share Year over Year Wii U 2013: 100% 2014: 15% PS4 2013: na 2014: 54.2% XOne 2013: na 2014: 30.5% 3DS 2013: 85% 2014: 74% VITA 2013: 15% 2014: 26%
This is the period in which we will find out if the 2:1 sales predictions are anything close to true. The early adopters and fanboys are enough to cause every console launch to sell millions. Now that we are in post Christmas period we will start to see what the interest is from "normal" people.
If the numbers from this site are taken at face value, and I'm not saying they should be but week to week they're pretty much all we have to go on, then PS4 is selling more and dropped off less after the holidays despite struggling to stay in stock. Only time will tell if that trend will continue.
The 15% for the Wii U should be inaccurate now, since their stock price recovered the very same day it dropped. If that's the latest figure, that is.
These numbers are about market share, not stock value.
I dont think you have a right to talk about stock prices because you dont know the difference between a stock price and market share.
wish the best for nintendo. Edit: i guess that "PS4 domination" thing might not be too far from the truth. PS4 hasn't even launched in Japan yet...
Actually why and how can u talk about market share when we are just 24 days into 2014? A little early yet to start talking about market share.
Sure the numbers will keep changing, but they'll always be based on the total number of consoles sold. There's the "how" for you, and the "why" is because that's what sites like this do.
But why not wait till the numbers too come in when a month ends? January isn't finished yet.
Maybe someone was bored, so they made a chart. They do put out weekly numbers, and it is the end of the week… That's all I've got for theories. ; )
3DS 2013: 85% 2014: 74% VITA 2013: 15% 2014: 26% Again the PSVita is not going away, yes its no where near Nintendo's very locked in handheld market share % BUT THAT STILL PUTS SONY IN A VERY SOLID 2ND PLACE MARKET SHARE % An for people that think Sony or Nintendo is going to leave that money sitting on the table, when its in the Millions and billions over lifetime, well that's just not very smart to leave that sitting on the table. They may end up looking at smart devices more and more for further growth, as a matter of fact Sony already has invested very heavy into smartphones and tablets for game distribution. and now no doubt even Nintendo is looking into it..Soon a Nintendo backed or made smartphone or Tablet may in fact be on the way. To also add into the Nintendo Handheld Eco system. both Good for Nintendo and Sony. for seeing to it, that more and better quality games for mobile handhelds be that dedicated or smartdevice get released to the mobilemarket.
Actually it would make sense for Nintendo too make a DS style tablet with 2 screens (using tegra 4 or 5)but include the google play store(Nintendo will still keep there own store independent).
@BenqMagician "Actually it would make sense for Nintendo too make a DS style tablet with 2 screens (using tegra 4 or 5)but include the google play store(Nintendo will still keep there own store independent)." Oh' yeah , but i think a "Phablet" like the Samsung GSNote, or like the xperia z, the LG G2 a larger size smartphone combo of a phone and Tablet. but also a gaming Tablet no doubt would be also quite fantastic. Sony sorta made something like this already, check this out xperia z1s http://www.gsmarena.com/son... also the Acer iconia tablet http://www.notebookcheck.ne...
