That is a good idea. Not that I really know how to set it up. @CGI-Quality want to do more betting stuff based on the Gap Charts?  

Hmmm...sounds like an idea

I figured to ask you, as I am too lazy to do it myself. Keeping up with the gaming news, updating the hardware figures, and the sales articles keeps me busy enough.

Some time ago I asked someone here about needing a person for this, as I am very interested in this kind of work and I am following these things, but the site didn't needed another person back then.

No worries



                                                                                                             

So PS3 + 360 did 173.2 million total; PS4 + Xbone need to do another 20.3 million to reach that.

Yes, quite true. Sony consoles generally have longer life spans than Nintendo's. At least when you look at the last few generations. Game Boy was on the market forever. 

Well there may be 1 or 2 exceptions, but in general preety much every console on sony has long legs, and did decent % of sales in their dying years, as opposite to nintendo, because half of their consoles aren't even so successful and normally when they start to decline they are dead within 3 years and haven't done big % of their sales in their last years.

The power on nintendo consoles is only in their prime years. And at that period (well the successful ones) beat easily other consoles sales records for 1 year or even for 1 month as it is now with switch or have been before with ds and wii.

It's just like marathon and sprint. Nintendo is doing sprint, Sony is doing marathon.

The Switch isn't bound to follow the patterns of most past systems though, it's quite uniquely different from any prior Nintendo platform.

If they're smart there's no reason they can't leg it out.

The Switch more than doubled its lead in the past 12 months. On top of that 3DS sales are going to hold up too well in the coming months while Switch sales are still accelerating.



10 million lead over 3DS, awesome.
By this point 3DS had sold more than half its lifetime sales too, while Switch should be less frontloaded as it's only had one revision so far and the standard model is still $300.
