2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

... ehh... ioi went to the future?



It's possible that was meant for preorders



Means the release date hasn't been changed in the database.

Also shows how much sales here are based on algorithms.



Not even the first time it happened and just shows that the numbers are guesswork. But whatever, just close both eyes and continue along.

He probably just linked to the wrong game.

This could have occurred for multiple reasons. Read the other suggestions in this thread as to why It could have happened. I think some pretty reasonable explanations were given.



I bet the Wii U would sell more than 15M LTD by the end of 2015. He bet it would sell less. I lost.

people make mistakes im sure it will be rectified.



The release date was wrong for Project CARS, which is why it showed up on the weekly chart instead of the pre-order chart. We get our release dates from Gamewise. Looks like someone updated the release date to the correct one now. http://www.vgchartz.com/weekly/42085/USA/

I've let Brett know about the mistake.
