VGChartz Top HW Through 16 Weeks

NSW passes 7M in a record 16 weeks.  Only lost 36K ground to 2020 this week for a total gap still at 609K.  3 more weeks of 2020 at huge sales, and then NSW 2021 will have a chance to surge back ahead and re-strengthen that lead (2020 averages 382K for 18 weeks until late Sep).

VGChartz pegging US April NPD at 690-700K range for now.



Thank you !



Games I'm playing/want this year on PS5 : Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, Scarlet Nexus, Kena : Bridges Of Spirits, Tales Of Arise, Far Cry 6, Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Samurai Warriors 5, Horizon Forbidden West.

So they are selling 1.09x more than they did in 2020 for Switch. They just announced around 29 million ships for 2020, so if that pacing keeps up they could have around 31,600,000 ships for 2021? And that's with just the current models. Throw in a Pro model and all the estimates get chucked out of the window.

The Switch sold more than every thing else combined, and..... if you add in the Xbox SSX and PS4 sales a second time.... Switch is still ahead. I really hope Nintendo do not rest on their lead, they need to keep on top of AAA releases from first parties like Metroid Prime 4 and Breath of the Wild 2 needs to be getting news soon, otherwise by the time those games are ready for release it will be years later at this point. I could see Splatoon 2 and Maybe Mario Odyssey 2 coming out before MP4 and BotW 2 at this stage.



Why not check me out on youtube and help me on the way to 2k subs over at www.youtube.com/stormcloudlive

I expect Breath of the Wild 2 to be the show-off title for this year's Switch revision along with a simultaneous launch of both the game and the hardware in fall 2021, hence the ongoing lack of news for the game. Nintendo won't show BotW2 until they are ready to unveil the revision.

For Metroid Prime 4 we know that development was completely rebooted in early 2019, so since then the most optimistic expectation for its release was fall 2021, but more realistically it would happen sometime in 2022. This means Splatoon 3 (announced for 2022) releasing before Metroid Prime 4 wouldn't be surprising at all.



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

Fixed the title, since the dates were wrong ^^



The new front page graph doesn't seem to have updated to reflect these numbers...?



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

NS domination has become the rule.
Sony needs to do something ASAP for its supplies issues, it's partially wasting PS5 first year and this implies that it's wasting the sacrifice of almost killing PS4 early too.
