Just so as you know, you have made a typo in the 1st line, it says "November instead of "December". Also, in the LTD percentages, you mentioned Switch twice. Pretty sure 2nd one supposed to be xboxone

Thank you for pointing that out. Typos have been fixed.

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

Now there's an understatement.

How many times has this happened before, a single system topping 5 million in one month?

Platforms with months over 5 million:

Switch

  • Dec 2019 - 5,043,666

DS

  • Dec 2006 - 5,294,269
  • Dec 2007 - 7,586,709
  • Dec 2008 - 7,723,240
  • Dec 2009 - 7,085,991
  • Dec 2010 - 5,543,354

Wii

  • Dec 2008 - 5,673,205
  • Dec 2009 - 7,396,341
  • Dec 2010 - 5,714,967

Platforms with months over 4 million:

Xbox 360

  • Dec 2010 - 4,002,911

3DS

  • Dec 2011 - 4,761,117

PS4

  • Dec 2015 - 4,578,358
  • Dec 2016 - 4,862,141

Yes, this is typical for nintendo consoles. Not to reach 5M in one month but to reach strongest numbers when they are in their strong years. Other consoles make around 20M at most in their strong years, nintendo often reaches 25-30M when they have successful console. However when it comes to their weaker years then Sony is often better performer with their consoles and they generally last longer.

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.

Very interesting how will this go. Why don't make a betting on these type of charts just like the weekly polls for the sales ? with the vg points ?

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?

So Switch has just pulled off something only the Wii and DS have ever done before. Wowzer.

Remember this site only goes back to 7th gen so we cant rule out systems like GBC, PS1, PS2 or GBA.

PS2 Dec NPD

2001-1.97m

2002-2.73m

2003-1.97m

GBA Dec NPD

2001-1.62m

2002-2.22m

2003-2.32m

Based on these NPD numbers, its very possible they did 5m glovally.
