Another week, another clear Switch win.



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

Switch prints money!



On VGChartz numbers will week January 2nd (I think the second) be accounted in the 2020 year or the 2021 year?



I am going to make a not very bold prediction: Switch will be #1 in 2021.

I won't know until I post the week ending January 2 sales. I am guessing it will be Week 53 for 2020.

I don't see this changing in 2021. Other than maybe when a big game releases for the PS5 or Xbox Series X|S. But that really depends on the stock of the consoles.

Thank you for the answer



Can we expect 700k-900k for the last week ?

well for the last week you have already 300k+ in japan alone, an additionnal 600k for the rest of the world isn't that high for a demand.
