VGChartz Methodology: Hardware estimates are based on retail sampling and trends in individual countries, which are then extrapolated to represent the wider region. This typically allows us to produce figures that end up being within 10% of the actual totals.

This data is regularly compared against official shipment figures released by the console manufacturers and figures estimated by regional trackers with greater market coverage than ourselves. We then update our own estimates to bring them into line with those figures. This can result in frequent changes often within a short space of time, but we feel it's important to prioritise accuracy over consistency.

Looking at the release schedule for 2015, Batman: Arkham Knight released that week. It was also right after E3 2015, which tends to cause a bit of a boost in sales.

I hadn't put any thought into the title for that far out. I see what is interesting with the hardware sales each week and use that for the title.

PS5 is about to outsell the Master System (20.84M)
Xbox Series is about to outsell the PS Vita (15.82M)

Batman Arkham Knight, which had a Limited Edition Bundle for PS4. 



All three current gen systems tightly clustered in America, but what stands out even more is how close PS and Xbox are in Asia.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Nooooooooooo not my beloved Master System.

Damn, I wish I had a NES when a kid but my mom bought the wrong videogame and brought a Master System home and I was too ashamed to say it was the wrong videogame.

It had some really good games in it though.
