Is that the highest week for Switch ever?

It's easy to forget that the XBO has such a strong holiday compared to the rest of the year. Seeing a console that's been posting 50k weeks for a lot of the year suddenly jump to almost a million.

Good sales all round. PS4 should finish the year with about 106.5m sold so below my prediction. Probably 14.4m-14.8m for the year.

Switch it all depends on how big an impact the lack of Smash Bros has on December. If it will be down/flat/up YoY is hard to say. But it's clear my 18.8m prediction has been well and truly FACKED. I blame the Switch Lite's sudden emergence.

Switch should finish the year with 19.5m-21.5m sold.

Not only is my 18.8m prediction wrong, but I predicted 2020 would be the peak over 2019 and now I think I'm going to lose that wager too.

Yep, previous best week was 22nd december 2018, with 1.47m.

The $150 Xbox One S All-Digital console with 3 games did wonders to push sales of the Xbox One. Plus all the other Xbox One S and Xbox One X bundles were heavily discounted. Microsoft had some of the best deals.

Switch leap frogs X1 next week then as far so sold to consumer goes while shipments at this point are pretty much all but above X1 the remaining weeks of the year will be how close to the SNES milestone can the platform get as it's currently 4.5m off the SNES.



All done great and yes Switch had a good lead.

Last year Switch sold another 5.63m after Black Friday. So even if it was flat YoY, Switch will end the year 50.2m easily beating the Snes!

Black Friday week was up by 19% YoY, so if the rest of the year followed it'd end the year with 51.2m, but without the boost from Smash Bros 2018 got it's difficult to say whether this year will be Up, Flat or even slightly down. I don't really know what to expect!

But outselling the SNES by the end of the year is pretty much guaranteed. Should be anywhere from 49.9m-51.3m

20.3m - 21.7m sales for the year, I think I lost the bet. I don't see 2020 beating 2019 anymore. If it does it'll be very close.

edit: One less week this year after Black Friday than last... so probably closer to 19.3m-20.7m sales for 2019. So there is a chance it doesn't quite beat the SNES this year imo.

LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

An absolute phenomenal week. This is the best week in the US for the Switch ever.

Black Friday this year was a week later, so hard to judge if sales after it this year will be the same as last year. Obviously sales should be up for most weeks compared to last year. Other than Smash Bros. launch.

Ohhhh, I got a bit too excited it seems. Didn't realise there's one less week... FFS

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

This week was mostly about North America.  Switch killed all around, but XB1 made a decent show in NA.  Normally it gets crushed by PS4, but this time PS4 is only about 5% above XB1 in NA.

Switch came in #1 in Europe too by a sizable margin.  I didn't see that coming.  Looks like Switch is going to rule the holidays in every region this year.
