Not really the moment the sales of the lite only portable switch are put together with the hybrid switch those Kinds of number are wrong. Nintendo is on two markets. Hell, i could go further and even say that 70% or more of switch gamers are portable and not pluged to a tv. Not the same thing.

And I could argue PS5 and Xbox Series has 2 sku’s each at retail. How people choose to play is irrelevant, this is about sales and Market Share.

@CyberSentinel

Would you also factor in how much the PS5 and Xbox series X cost compared to the switch, or would we just ignore that too?

CyberSentinel38d ago

@Silly GameAr

Cost is a factor, software is a factor, exclusive content is a factor, censorship is a factor, portability is a factor. Everything is a factor...but the only factors that matter to manufacturers publishers and developers are sales.
Cost is the other systems problem, not Nintendo’s.

Xbox 2.5 percent is comical. You shouldn't even post the Xbox percent

LucasRuinedChildhood38d ago (Edited 38d ago )

A really misleading comment and some big spin. Those are just the Japanese figures.

The PS5 has the lead, not the Switch. These are the worldwide numbers:
"Looking at the marketshare through 15 weeks, the PlayStation 5 currently leads. The PS5 has a 42.7 percent marketshare, the Switch sits at 28.9 percent, and the Xbox Series X|S at 28.4 percent."

You're arguing with waverider about how different skus of the Switch are irrelevant to how we should look at the sales, yet you're only highlighting the sales in a single region which produces a much more skewed view. If the only thing that matters is the overall "sales and Market Share", then why do that?

CyberSentinel38d ago

To myself and many others, total market share is more important then less then 4 months of sales. The switch released in 2017, and therefore has higher “total sales” numbers between the three systems.

@CyberSentinel

Your response has nothing to do with your original comment. C'mon, dude. We're just talking about aligned sales here, so why only use aligned sales from one region and pretend it's the whole story? Your argument with waverider was based on a lie. You're being a bit too much of a fanboy

If only AMD can provide more chips and Sony can make more units to sell, the number would be even more amazing.

S2Killinit38d ago

I think the PS5 numbers would go through the roof if the shortage eases and people can actually find them in stores.

jznrpg38d ago (Edited 38d ago )

It’s hard to quantify and compare a launch of a product that included old chips that aren’t in demand at all except for the Switch compared to new chips that are in heavy demand outside of the PS5 and Xbox and a world wide shortage at launch .

CyberSentinel38d ago

That’s true, that’s also Sony’s and Microsoft’s problem, not Nintendo’s.
