May i make two suggestions that may improve the charts?

I was wondering if you could add a small column on the left with de percentage of change YTD for each week?

And since at least Nintendo and Sony have Financial Years ending the 31st of march every year, could you add a line in the bottom of each chart with the cumulative sales since first week of april 2019?
This way we could see easily what the FY2019 sales are?
You could do that for FY2020 after the 31st of march 2020

Just suggestions, let me know what you think :)

Much appreciated.

I won't be doing the YTD percentages since Trunks already has that taken care of in his Sales articles.

But, you're suggestion of Nintendo and Sony's financials does give me an idea...

Switch off to a great start. Hopefully it will stay that way over the year.

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

I voted 2020 would be peak year, but I haven't ruled out 2021 as peak year yet. I am convinced 2019 was not the peak year though. Switch sales are already up 26% YoY and the first week of 2019 was still benefiting from a recent Smash Bros release. Switch definitely has some strong momentum right now. It's sales are still accelerating. We haven't seen it's peak year yet.



2020 will be a strong year for the Switch indeed. Like liquid said, it has strong momentum on its own right now and is up significantly compared to 2019 with smash in effect. That said, if we see a pro model, it is going to happen this year. So with that in mind and year starting stronger than the past with Pokemon MD and Animal crossing there is no doubt it will be up atleast the first 6 months.

We'll see what other games Nintendo have planned for this year, but I'm sure they have some huge titles to survive the flow of press the next gen consoles will be getting.



Aaaaaaaaaand subscribed!

Switch is off to a great start already!

As for the poll... 2020 sure has a shot at being the peak year. But what about 2021?



I think 2020 might be better than 2019, but I am not sure if the Switch might be able to peak even later.

Yeah I cant see the Switch peak in it's 5th year either.

That would make the Switch be closing in on 100M after not even 5 full years on the market and I cant see that happening.
I'm very confident in 2020 being the peak year though.

The switch will peak in 2020 AND close in on 100m before 5 full years. Those two aren't mutually exclusive.
