We got actual numbers? Where'd you find these? I haven't been able to find anything.

So they're not exact, but pretty damn close (<3% margin of error)?

About that, they also fits with a previus estimate of 480k XB1+PS4

Around the Network

Switch: 550k
PS4: 310k
X1: 187k

Switch has exceeded 2.6 million sales in the US. Last update was 2 million.

[NSW] 392K
[PS4] 195K
[XB1] 160K

Won bet with t3mporary_126 - I correctly predicted that the Wii U's LTD at the end of 2014 would be closer to 9 million than 10 million.

switch =600k .Easy one,almost guaranteed.
Ps4 =300 k.
xbo = 180 k.

Last month switch won despite the release of destiny 2, and NBA 2k18, with no major releases for itself. With Odyssey, Switch will win without a shadow of a doubt

Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
