What went wrong?

What made "the fastest selling console ever" to lose its steam and drop down to Xbone levels in 2018?

Do you have a single fact to back that up?

But Anon, not only is it selling better than the Xbone and is having an increased YoY, but also predicted by the NPD (who has infinite amounts of data and actually smart analysts, unlike /v/) to outsell even the PS4 this year. To ask, "What went wrong?" is a bit silly. Were you hoping spamming the same thread over and over would slow its sales down or something?
>>
>>423901006
because it's not the console that sell, it's the games
BOTW, odyssey, and a lot of other shit like the promise of a MP4 in developement, all of this create the hype of last year
What happened this year? nothing basically
Nothing happen

Q1/Q2 2018 was WiiU port period
Q3/Q4 is original tile period

I would highly expect 2019 to be the same to be honest.

Would not surprise me at all if January to July 2019 is full of stuff like the HD Zelda ports, Wonderful 101 and Xenoblade X while the late half has Pokémon, Bayonetta 3, Metroid 4, SMT etc etc

It's because people who keep parroting andbringing up how it's the fastest selling console and best selling nintendo console conveniently forget the Wii U did the same shit it's first year. Broke records, did amazing sales.
Then year 2 happened.
>>
>>423902339
It should be under warranty. Contact Nintendo and say your shits broken.
>>

the fuck is that supposed to mean even? it's not a marathon with 1000s participants where being number 2 might be considered good

>>423902413
You're LITERALLY making shit up.

WiiU sold like 3 million in its first few months then dropped off a cliff. Maxing out at 15 million after 5 years.

Switch sold 18+ million its first year. With a good 6+ months being heavily supply restrained.
>>
>>423902246

I wonder how many people keep using it because they're uninformed retards vs those who know full well everything they post is fake and they do it for shitposting's sake.

Quit talking out of your ass. The Wii U only sold well during its launch in the holiday season. It completely flatlined after and never recovered.

Daily reminder that this OP:

https://boards.fireden.net/v/search/filename/1450219215221.jpg/

He cries himself to sleep every night, cursing Nintendo.

And then when he wakes, the first thing he does is check his newsfeeds, hoping and praying that Nintendo have gone bankrupt overnight.

Once the disappointment subsides, he begins his daily routine of combing the internet for any negative Nintendo articles and shitbaits on /v/ endlessly, making the same threads over and over. Using the powers of tears and salt, he believes he can galvanise a new timeline into existence where the Switch isn't a success.

No job. No relationship with another human being. No life. Doesn't even have time to play video games other than Terraria (which he shills endlessly). Just a kissless perma-virgin who has wasted his life because of his mentally ill obsession with Nintendo.

>I think Scorpio has the potential to push Xbox One sales ahead of the PS4 in the US in 2017. Adoption among the core gaming audience could be significant. And, while this is a niche audience to target, it’s the niche which is necessary to put the Scorpio on the path for longer term mass market adoption.

>Piscatella then went on to reiterate what many others have already said; Microsoft needs to work on its software lineup because tech specs alone aren’t going to cut it, especially given the speculation surrounding Scorpio’s price tag.

>No matter how amazing the tech specs are, if attractive content doesn’t show up, the mass market won’t adopt.

Someone did post a month by month sales graph. Sony doesn't win it every month. At the start of a one year period if Sony was ahead by x million and then won 11 months out of 12 but Nintendo won 1 month, depending on how much each month's sales figures were Sony's lead at the beggining of the year (x) may now be shortened.
As it turned out though, looking at the graph (which I can't find anywhere with google) the Switch has won a number of months in the past year. So the gap may well be closing. It 100% is in Japan, it's in North America and Europe where the PS4 can still pull ahead for a month here and there.
