As someone know, i had some real-life problem which made me leave this site and in general many internet sites for about a year or so. Since now it's over, i can doing my "prediction series" again, and of course let's start with NPD. Also thanks to Barney for update some months when i was not there.

That said, let's go.

XB1: 120,000


PS4 250k > Switch 210k > XB1 150k > 3DS 100k

Now if you can add some numbers this prediction can be alright...

PS4: 250,000
NS: 210,000
XOne: 160,000
3DS: 110,000

Switch seems to be pretty high on Amazon for the month of September in the US out of the consoles so I'll go with;

[NSW] 245,000
[PS4] 235,000
[XB1] 155,000

Although stock seemed to be pretty low and the start of the month for Switch on amazon, but a walmart exclusive Splatoon 2 bundle came out in September.

You forgot Dragon Ball and One Piece for Switch

You could add the Splatoon 2 Switch Bundle there, though it's exclusive to Walmart.

I can see a virtual tie between PS4 and Switch, but PS4 winning in the end.

PS4 - 280k

NSW - 270k

XBO - 160k

Bonus: SNES - 250k

Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.
