Stop including Wii U, Nintendo stupidly made them extremely hard to get even before production ended. You do not see Wii U in store any longer. Glad I have one, and LOVE it, BOTW is amazing even on Wii U. Sadly you will not see a BOTW Wii U bundle.

Just because a console gets discontinued doesn't mean it abruptly stops selling. For example Xbox 360 got discontinued last year and VGC is still counting the excess units that are still being sold.

Utter domination by sony. Wow

VoodooProject38d ago

That's strange with that domination, but when you look at sales as a whole Microsoft is a 386 billion dollar net worth company while Sony is at 11 billion dollars. Weird. Why is Microsoft dominating so much when PlayStation sales are good?

Utter domination LMAO

Dragonscale38d ago

Funny how with allll that money they are getting kerb stomped, especially worldwide. Lol.

Such embarrasment that a $386b corp is being brutally destroyed by Sony in gaming. Speaks volumes about how strong and popular PlayStation brand is worldwide, something xbox will not achieve in next 50yrs.

Maybe Phil Spencer should use some of that money in establishing new and talented first party studios to bolster that anaemic line-up.

Wow. Pathetic. Really, really childish argument, if I was an Xbox guy Id be say be quiet, you do not speak for all of us.

Whats strange is you think the richest company is the best at making at console. I guess the guy with the best car is the nicest person right, as if one thing has anything to do with the other.

You are laboring under the false assumption that Microsoft made their money from gaming. They didnt. They made their money monopolizing operating systems. Gaming is nothing for them. In fact its only in recent years that Xbox even turned a profit, they spent over an entire generation in the red.

Meanwhile Sony is very poor compared to Microsoft, or even compared to what they used to be. They are a struggling company, no argument. Yet they do gaming so well that Playstation is pretty much keeping that company afloat. Without Playstation Sony would be done. That says a lot about Playstation.

What you should be asking is why does a company with unlimited resources do so little for gaming while a company that could fold at any time do so much? And why dont their fans demand more? MS is worth 35 times more than Sony. Shouldnt they have 35 times more developers cranking out 35 times more games. No, they have less devs, less games, and until Scorpio, less power. They didnt even want to invest in that until they were so far behind they have to sneak a new generation in and call it an update.

Anyway, Im sure this is all over your head. I dont know why Im even bothering. You sound like a salty child and wont listen anyway. I just dont get why you would revere someone who has everything and gives so little and shun someone who has nothing and gives so much. Microsoft wouldnt even be in this business if they hadnt seen how Sony did it and grew the industry because back in the 90's no one thought taking on Nintendo and Sega was a good idea. No one except for consoles that failed like 3DO and Jaguar. So you should really have a little respect and a bit less ignorance.

@Voodoo

We should be focused on gaming aspect of these companies unless I'm at the wrong site.
This is like someone mentioning how ESPN is better than Fox Sport in sports coverage and then the next person mentioning how much bigger Fox Network is as a whole. So please stick to the point.

Sure vgchartz numbers are questionable and all. Still, its welcome to balance a US focused internet and some biased gaming sites relaying NPD news as if its the only thing gamers need to know.(even if most gamers don't live in the US)
