Sell-through almost passing the PS1 now! 2nd best selling home console of all time next week!

Switch has done very well Pokemon week. 40% up over last week. Not double like Japan but that would have been silly. xD



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

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

Switch sales increase was closer to 25-30% outside of Japan. I did adjust our Switch numbers up for the previous week thanks to getting numbers out of the UK.

Dayum, that's great for the Switch, but not a good sign for future Pokemon games.

The game has been a success. Sword and Shield had a bigger launch than Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee.

Switch is on track to surpass to the Xbox One during Black Friday week. So 2 more weeks of numbers to be posted here on VGChartz.

With AAA third party support: 99k
Without AAA third party support: 716k

A big win for gaming.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

First party lineup makes a huge difference. Plus Pokemon is one of the biggest franchises in the world.

Narrowing the gap to a bit over 1.5M in one fell swoop.

Excluding any adjustments we are talking 2 weeks until the Switch surpasses the Xbox One, and 1 or 2 weeks until the PS4 surpasses the PS1.
