I don't think they'll hit 13.5M. I think they'll adjust it down to 11M by the holidays. That said, 11M would still be damn good.

11 million would be only a few million less than the Wii U's total and only a little under half of the GameCube's total.

Heck, even a fluke at this point of 8-9 million would still be so darn good for such an old platform. 13.5 million seems optimistic and I think it will be more like 10-12 million. 

How wild is it that the successor to the Wii U is currently predicted on one of its outgoing fiscal years to sell nearly identical to the Wii U's entire life?

The Road to 160 million is likely, though not a given. We'll see how pricing and support after Switch 2 launches affects hardware sales. 

Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 161 million (was 73 million, then 96 million, then 113 million, then 125 million, then 144 million, then 151 million, then 156 million)

PS5: 115 million (was 105 million) Xbox Series S/X: 48 million (was 60 million, then 67 million, then 57 million)

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)
