If NS sells 18-20m again this calendar year that potentially has it hitting 70m and is effectively taking aim at its second prior gen predecessor the 3DS which would be the first of the Nintendo portables it moves toward.

Really strong sales from Switch, no big titles since November yet it is still performing better than last year with smash momentum. So it's clear that if it keeps an overall higher baseline atleast during the first 6 months of the year it has a chance to surpass last year's performance overall or atleast match it. But tbh, they would have to be pretty lazy to not atleast match it. Switch is going to have multiple 20+ millions years on it's resume.

Is there is people thinking it will match the 3DS ? 25 millions to go and still no price cut and revision or new model potential with major franchises still to come.



I reckon Xbone will manage to crawl over 50 million, but only just.

Good to see Switch starting the year off strong with better YOY momentum than 2019.

Last point is crucial. Profit is all that matters, in the end, and they are making way more money on this hardware than 3ds or Wii u. 



I wonder if we see Nintendo reporting 50M units sold in their quarter financial report ending 31st December. 20M in the fiscal year 19/20 could also be possible now.

Yeah, that 20M Switch shipped for the end of the fiscal year. Is almost too easy at this point ... Too easy ...

I honestly would have preferred for AC to launch in mid-March. There's a possibility we won't know the effect it has on hardware right off the bat.

So with these numbers, how much has Switch sold in the FY, how much more does it need to sell in the next 3 months to hit 20 million?

Based on VGC's sell-through, Switch should have shipped 17-17.5m in the current fiscal year by the end of December.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Very interested to see where Xbone sales stabilize this year once the holiday boost wears off, now that XSX has been officially revealed.

They would be extremely lucky if they reached 50 millions somehow by January 2021 but it's unlikely.
