I know it's all just speculation when it comes to VGC but the trend I have noticed over the last few months with these YoY articles is the XBO and Switch are up and the PS4 is down. It doesn't really mean much in the grand scheme of things but it's just an interesting trend that hardly anyone has picked up on.

Same time last year...
PS4: 6,579,509
Switch: 3,669,471
XBO: 1,774,137

Clearly this time last year it was outselling both combined but this year it hasn't. Has PS4 reached its saturation point like many assume?

gamerzero97d ago

That seems like irrelevant information to me. The fact of the matter is the PS4 is still the best selling console by a significant margin..

Selling 1 million consoles a month and more than 3x as much software and your nearest competitor is impressive and both competitors would love to be in Sony's position.

year or over ps4 might slow down because it been in the market for so long and over 80 million systems have been sold but ps4 is still outselling both xbox and switch on monthly bases and will continue to do so because nintendo released it biggest games last year and now we have to wait few more years and ms just doesn't have much besides the power claim

Yep seems to be pretty much the case, though saturating at 3X the main competition is humongous in itself and that Switch is one lovely offering no doubt, it had to rise. Funny that Xbox1 still hasn't got any impactful uplift YOY esp. compared to the Switch that we could call it a force to be reckoned with... thanks to you for showing :)

PS4 has seen a winning streak NONE of the competitors have proposed in ANY generation. I'm amazed even being saturating at around 80 million total, and averaging at 1 million a month approx. its still not slowing down... and has such attractive software planned for the next 2 years that'll keep amazing the audience in special super months i.e. as shown by god of war... what TLoU2 will do is gonna be bonkers ;)

neutralgamer199297d ago


Agreed what's really amazing is ps4 will continue to sell at this rate and by March 2019(sonys fiscal year) ps4 will be surpassed 90 million or more

The last few years ps4 has moved millions of consoles from September-December and this year we will get Spiderman and rdr2 bundles which will sell well

Switch was a one year wonder because it has Mario and Zelda within the first year now it will sell well but people were expecting it to be on the same pace

Herbiwhore97d ago

Lol its easy to be up when you've been at rock bottom. Ps4 selling more than double suggests it hasn't quite hit saturation

Eonjay97d ago (Edited 97d ago )

It hasn't reached saturation price yet. If it had it wouldn't still be outselling everything. It would quite pathetic to think that the other consoles would still be so far behind a saturated one. Also, we have no way of knowing Xbox sales so its just an estimation. Even if PS4 was down 50% it would still outsell the Xbox One so are you sure you understand what saturation means?

What about their Indirect or direct competitor?

jaycptza97d ago

how would you quantify gaming PC sales? It's impossible as people by GPUs for crypto-mining and hardly anyone buys a pre configured gaming PC.

Eonjay97d ago

Thats a real hard one to figure out.

Elda97d ago

PS4 still reigns supreme!!

pinkystinkinc97d ago

nintendo kill the ds and allow the switch to gain access to a larger library without having to compete against itself

While yes the PS4 will not be caught this generation, The Xbox 1 , by the end of 2018, will have sold in the 40 mil range cannot be considered a failure by Microsoft. When they finally cease the X1, it will probably end in the 60 mil range. Considering the catastrophe that was its reveal and the backpeddling MS did to rectify it. By releasing the X1X, MS position themselves to not have to be the first out of the gate with a new system as the X1X clearly has power to hang in the introduction of a new generation, wait for SONY to finalize specs and then top it. They clearly have IP's in house to bring exclusives, they just need someone to make them, which by acquiring 5 studios, they did. Considering the Microsoft console history, OGX 24mil, X360 77+mil (many are repurchases and Im sure MS knows this), X1 projected possible may not be green meadows and bunnies in Redmond but it certainly isnt the zombie apocalyse will be interesting to watch the chess match play out and see who flinches first.
