Great legs for XC3.
We'll get the separate top 30 tomorrow.
For hardware we might never get separate numbers.

The hardware numbers from last year in the table are also for two weeks combined btw.





Switch is 7.5m from getting the all time record. Unlikely yes, but small possibility? Maybe with a Switch pro? BOTW 2 boost? Possible.. and at its price point that is seriously impressive


Maybe the more likely record is to break PS2's home console record (I am taking out Switch L sales as it's handheld only). That record is 23.2m for PS2 vs 20.7m Switch home consoles. It will probably do it in Q2 of next year unless Splatoon and Pokemon give the Switch a major holidays boost

How much do you think Switch sales will fall in 2023? 2022 will likely sell around 4.75m to 5m, do you expect 4m, 3.5, 3m or sub 3m in 2023?

I'm thinking 4.75mil tops this year.



I think Quarter 3 is going to sell much better than Q2, Q2 famitsu sales were 840k (av 64.6K per week). So far Q3 sales are 508K (av 72.4K per week) after 7 weeks, with an upcoming boost from Splatoon 3 then i expect Q3 to surpass 1m.

I think the same but i'm hoping Poke'mon and Splatoon 3 can push it closer to 5m.



Switch sales being within 10,000 units of last year is pretty good. PS5 sales are just over double year and Xbox Series X|S is nearly up by 4 times. I'd say it was a half decent two weeks of hardware sales.
