The next Nintendo update is on February 7th. My guess for Pokemon sales is 18mil.



Good hold for the PS5 from the holidays.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will probably overtake SSBU in lifetime sales in a week, two at most. Seems even in Japan Smash couldn't keep up with the absolute monster that is MK8.



Major Switch Titles Launch Aligned

Multiplat 2023 Opencritic Prediction League

2022 predictions:

  • Switch - 24m
  • PS5 - 15.5m
  • Xbox Series - 10m

Good start of year for Switch and PS5. Somehow there's still some 3DS consoles to be found...



Signature goes here!

Around the Network

Damn, MK8D passing of Smash is imminent! That slow burn for years to finally pass it is about to complete! But Pokemon V/S will pass both of them shortly after. Though MK8D may very well pass Pokemon back later on thanks to legs.

Switch 1 week away from hitting 28m and therefore being less than 5m from the Japan HW record!



Oh shit the PS4 is up massively time for a big comeback. Really though a good start for the top two and seems 2023 will be the final year of tracking for the PS4 and 3DS, I didn't think the latter would last this long.



Series X|S has officially passed 400k in JP. Passing the OG is that much closer now.



also pokemon S/V surpassed SH/SW in retail already which is crazy and splatoon 3 not really far from splatoon 2 which i thought would be impossible, really nice
