Im pretty sure its for the FY and not the calendar year. I might be wrong tho. I dont think it will do 20 million calendar but might do it for the FY.

FY is possible I was thinking Calendar for a 10 to 12 mil mark. They will still need a big push from Smash and Pokemon which is likely as the hype for Smash keeps rising.

It ended last calendar year with 13.2 million, and this year is tracking a good 1.2 million units ahead of last year.

If they are at 19 mil they would only need 5 more weeks of 200k sales...quite doable especially with the hype the new Smash game is gathering. Sony will make another strong push soon, but again with Smash on the horizon,  its quite posible the Switch remains on that 200k run.

Their goal is 20m for the year though, not 20m LTD. VGC has Switch at 5.9m for the year so far.

Yeah but that is the entire year. the FY start as of April

Yeah it is definitely Possible but I saw you thought 20mil LTD not FY that's why you said easy so that makes perfect sense to me now.



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

Nice, didn't expect Switch to stay on top for a second week. Octopath seems to have struck a chord.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

So how long are we betting that the Switch holds on to the lead? Until late August? Either way, this makes me optimistic for the holidays

Which games are upcoming?

Mostly smaller titles and ports like Go Vacation and Okami HD.
I'd say Switch should remain on top until the first or second week of August, whenever Madden comes out.

Hmm, not sure if Switch can keep up with this smaller titles, after all current numbers are induced by Octopath.

Wow, PS4 actually did come in 3rd in NA this week. Looks like NPD tool actually is getting the order right even if the ratios are a bit off. I'm still impressed with the tool. Because this dip in PS4 sales seems to be a special case, but it is reflected in both the actual numbers here and in the NPD tool.



Sony needs to resolve their supply issue.

Well, there is Monster Hunter the end of august for the west. Maybe it can help the Switch to hold up.
