Top consoles by VGC through 8 weeks:

NSW in 2nd place marginally behind NDS 07, and up 41% YoY.

Looks like January was adjusted down by a few 10K and US Feb number is currently set at 642K.  Leaks could help push up to #1 spot, as the known range for Feb US is 613K - 753K.



Wow, amazing job Switch! Another 3-4 weeks and it will be overtaking the PSP and GBA.



Nintendo Switch was adjusted up in the US, Canada, and the rest of the Americas as we were low on compared to the range we have from NPD figures.

The fact that everytime switch numbers seem to be undertracked amazes me.

Switch was under tracked? Nuce!

Heh, was wondering how Switch did 400k+ on a week when nothing particularly special happened. Still, Switch is killin' it.

Huh? You mean just the year plus launch for Xbox Series? It'll probably outsell PS5 in that regard too. The Switch is in it's prime.
