    Soon PS5 will be first 😎🎮🏆👊🏻



  4. DragonPupEclipse on October 21, 2019 at 5:10 pm

    The reason why the switch is killing it now cuz you can use it as a console or a portable device. Where ps4 you can’t make it portable. Also the exclusives and games are very enjoyable



  5. FinnThomas on October 21, 2019 at 5:11 pm

    Wii u cuz its reasonably priced and overall just cheaper

    "Data source: companies annual sales reports" It’s me or Microsoft doesn’t share anymore their Xbox sales reports?

  33. OP Ghxst on October 21, 2019 at 5:48 pm

    Ps4 was ahead of it’s time



  34. WeLikeSportz on October 21, 2019 at 5:49 pm

    I think if you’re going to do a monthly comparison it’d be better to use a statistic that doesn’t accumulate, like active users or something. Not sure how available that info is.

    Still great vid, I’ll have to go watch the other one mentioned in description which will probably give me more of what I’m looking for.



  35. King_ Aries87 on October 21, 2019 at 5:50 pm

    I own both Xbox and Switch but I gotta say the PSP(first one) Ben Ten, Sonic Rivals, Mega Man, those were all my “Hide under the covers though I’m supposed to be sleeping on a school night" games lol I miss those days



  36. King Vega on October 21, 2019 at 5:51 pm

    Why is no one talking about how cocky xbox fans are about being the best console yet got destroyed in sales practically the entire time.



  37. CR Adams on October 21, 2019 at 5:53 pm

  38. elnocturno Araújo on October 21, 2019 at 5:53 pm
