Took longer than what I thought it would, PS3 and PS4 dropped majorly compared to PS2 sales in Japan.
Speaking of PS2, next week NSW will pass it launches aligned.
LTD week 144
PS2 Dec 2002
NSW December predictions
It should pass PS2 next week and by the end of the year have close to a 500k lead
This is a 1:1 comparison because they both launched in the first week of March.
Yep I don't think at end of life PS2 would have a chance to stay ahead of Switch in Japan. The portable side of it is much looked after in Japan. But yes their comparison makes much more sense than to PS3 or PS4.
Still as said, this new or thread isn't about bragging that Switch passed both, but just a milestone pointing that at this moment Switch have passed that milestone. We knew PS4 would pass 100M and perhaps even 120M, still we celebrated a lot of 10, 25, etc milestones.
