How many units shipped Nintendo will announce soon for the 2018 Q2 (2018 July 1st - Sept 30th)

I am testing how accurate is the community in this kind of prediction.

Here are some target needed to reach the 20M goal...It is going to be difficult.

LET'S FACE THIS FACT : The Switch is the last physical video game system of the history who has a chance to beat PS2's sales.

As things stand, I think the only way that Nintendo can reach 20 million is if during the Q3 aggressively makes some promotions but that is not the way that Nintendo does things , so right now I doubt they can reach that goal.

I expect between 18 and 19M

I don't believe that Smash + the 2 low cost Pokemon are enough to make it until 12M for the Q3

I would assume that the Fortnite bundle got shipped in September, so I think that's enough to push them over to 3 million. Does anyone know when they are giving numbers out? Also, there is an error in the OP. The tracking period is July through September, not June.

I expect them to ship close to 3 millions for Q2. They already said since E3, the sales went up like crazy. And they were at 19,67 millions shipped by the end of Q1. According to VGChartz, the sales are around 21 millions by the end of september, so they could have shipped around 1.5/2 millions more than this number. Which could make it around 22,5 millions shipped, so the shipping for Q2 could be around 2.8/3 millions.

Guessing on the higher end of 2-2.5 mil.

What is the Switch NPD total estimate for Q2?

733k I believe. 



2.5m, 9.5m, 3.2m for the next 3 quarters is my guess.

Don't see how they can ship 20m.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

As I said, I think I'm way more positive to see them pushing for 18M shipped consoles then the intial 20M wanted.
