Which Spencer said was increasing sales. Sea of Thieves and Forza sold well. SoD charted.

It bombed.
Sad but true, it's a better game than either of those as well although very different.

I heard Nintendo gets 80% of its revenue from Switch. 3DS is dead; everyone switched.

I see what you did there.

I enjoyed CD3. Glad I didn't have to pay $60 for it though.

Based on hint + assumptions about the order, March NPD looks like:

Switch 383K
PS4 253K
Xbox 221K


YTD 2019 NPD, per Welfare:

NSW: 1.03M (+20%)
PS4: 730K (-25%)
XB1: 550K (-35%)

Note those are shipped not sold, but here are sold totals for the other best-selling home consoles:

Wii 101 m
PS2 155 m
PS1 102 m

Everything else is in the rear view mirror at this point, except two Nintendo handhelds.

PS4 won't catch PS2, but it will pass PS1 and Wii late in 2020. So, it will end up being the #2 best selling console of all time.

Impressive and i said Switch would surpass xbo and end up in 2nd place.
I still see this happening which is also impressive.

Wii U ended this gen in 3rd. PS4 is in first and Xbox is second. Should be interesting to see how PS5 and Xbox 4 does against Switch for gen 9.

Yeah, it's hard to know what to do with Wii U and Switch numbers, because they kind of straddle generations. Fair to say Wii U ... um, underperformed.

Have Nintendo released any data to show what people use the switch more for docked or handheld?

Think I've used mine docked twice. But not touched it since ape out

Let me know what you think of KH3. I really prefer your reviews.
Thanks. I have no experience with KH, but I am processing some serious stuff in my life right now, and I felt like I needed something lighthearted and childlike/innocent as a break from that. The KH fans tell me I should play all the previous games first, but I can't be bothered with that. They tell me that if I'm not going to play the previous games, the least I could do is watch a video recap of the story. I tried to do that but quickly got bored with all of the nonsensical twists and turns. It seemed like a lot of overly convoluted nonsense. So, I'm going to play the game without understanding anything about the backstory. That'll probably detract from my enjoyment, but I don't care. I'll let you know what I think. I'm not sure if anyone else here has played it. I'll have to check for a thread.

If anyone cares about lifetime PS3 sales, Sony just reported on them in their recent financials. "More than 87.4 million," as of March 2017. From what I hear, last official numbers for the 360 were 84 m. But, as I say whenever this subject comes up, the 360 and PS3 were neck and neck, and arguing about which one "won" the generation is silly. Wolf or someone else usually points out Wii beat them both, which is also true.
