NSW 2021 falls behind NDS 07 and 08.  Will probably lag behind unless NPD Feb 2021 comes in at >500K and/or release of Monster Hunter Rise when we probably see a spike up to 7-800K in week 13.

Still outpacing all else though, including NSW 2020.

*Note, VGC numbers for NSW 2020 were very slightly adjusted down from last week.

I believe that NDS 09 will be the most even comparison, as there was a rise in early April (which is about when MonHun Rise is coming) and the baseline is slightly lower now, however will be slightly higher after this april section.



why the PS4 total number increase only by 23k but has sold 50k this week ?

Adjustments were made. We had the PS4 overtracked in the UK in 2020.

Japan is significantly down this week, but Switch is still selling around 350k worldwide. Japan is running short on the base model. Nintendo upped production, but it doesn't look like they have upped it enough. It's selling competitive with the DS's best years. Nintendo needs to keep supplies up.

I don't think production is a serious problem for Japan. Nintendo is stockpiling units for the launch of Monster Hunter Rise, that's what's going on.



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

They had better stockpile a whole lot.  Last year whenever there was a major release, they only had stock for 1-2 weeks in Japan and then they were in short supply again.  To me it looks like they are on track to do this sort of thing again.



If Series' stock is not big enough by Week 17 they might lose that week to the Xbox One (Titanfall launched, they sold 148k consoles), but apart from that they should win any other week in 2021 against 2014's Xbox One.

The next four weeks should all be about the same as this one and then things will be get shaken up for a bit at the end of March and start of April. Also I really wonder who exactly those 8 people in Japan are and why they decided to buy an Xbox One now of all times.
