No. There is always a huge drop in the last week of December.According to VGC no device ever reached a million in the last week of December. Only the Wii and DS ever came close.

Anyway, no, imo. I know VGChartz will most likely say different, but last year PS4 sold 3.4 million the last 4 weeks of the year, which is an avg of 850K every weeks.

Even if PS4 is up YOY this year, i don't see it having EVERY weeks over 1 million. (because don't talk about the avg. There will probabily be some 1 million weeks, but not all of them)



2020 predictions: NSW 21m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m
(PS5 and XSX predictions will most likely change after we know enough about them)

No.

I don't see much wrong with it. It's a dedicated question and having a topic for it is fine.

Regarding the question? No. The last week of the year will see significant drops (for obvious reasons). It's possible that we'll see 1m or so (just below/above) through Christmas week.

Yeah I agree with the majority. I will be surprised if PS4 is near a million the last week of December. Maybe 300k ish. I would expect a small boost again when Monster Hunter comes out though.



Same answer as above. But it could easily sell over a million during the previous weeks.

I had forgot of the high drop on the last week. Boxing Day is on the first week of January right?

And yes the question isn't about averaging a 1M per week, it is about doing at least it every week.

Considering just two juggernauts ever made it seems like I have an answer, a big no chance.

CGI, if you want you can close the thread or let people discuss the possibilities even if slim.

Nope, the last week will see sales plummet because there's no xmas buying anymore.

Boxing day is the 26th December, the day after Xmas. Don't expect many sales that day though. People who want consoles at that time of the year want them by the 25th, not the day after
