"Increase in overall video game sales" means all consoles as well as all their popular games, so those titles that have been showing good legs are selling even better lately.
In another thread I had asked you why you are so optimistic about PS4 sales and your answer was historical precedent. How come that you don't apply the same standard to Nintendo? Meaning that you should expect Nintendo to have a better lineup in the second half of the year than the first half, because that's how it has pretty much always been. But instead you insist that Nintendo has yet to prove something, despite them proving it year after year after year.
The current global circumstances don't really have a historical precedent for Nintendo. I do think it's most likely their second half will be stronger than the first as is usually the case, but can they still deliver in the middle of a pandemic, which could slow software development?
Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
