10M next month?



@Intrinsic Seems likely! Wonder if they can squeak by this month, assuming stock is there.

Would be nice if Ratchet & Clank could give a hardware boost, provided the stock is there lol



Sony’s struggle to provide enough PS5 stock is noticeable in this week’s chart compared to the week before.

How long did it take the PS4 to reach 10M..think it hit that by like August? or was it September?



How long until Switch reaches 90 million?

It took 10 months until the PS4 topped 10 million looking at our figures. That would be August 2014.

It should top 90 million in early to mid August depending on if its weekly sales can stay around 400,000 per week. Of course adjustments could always happen when we get more data. Mainly NPD leaks for the US or when Nintendo releases its quarterly shipment figures.

I'm not sure if Mario Golf will budge the Switch numbers. I was hoping at this past June Direct that they would feature a game that highlighted a fresh experience for 2021 that would pump sales up for the next two years, but there's nothing... yet Switch continues to kill it on its outstanding catalogue, still up year over year. The lack of a price drop speaks volumes to Nintendo's confidence this year.

I suppose the obvious feature would be fitness - Ring Fit Adventure was a more than successful trial - but those become more obvious titles in the late autumn/early winter when people are seeking some kind of new indoor fitness thing. It just seems like such an obvious avenue for Nintendo - they could release a new type of fitness game every year or two and people will always demand it because, like the majority of recreational activities, they're always going to want something new when they get bored of the old ones... except if it's Mario Kart 8 Deluxe :D



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
