Ps4 coming for that top spot!

Good numbers for Switch, while 3DS seems to be experiencing a collapse.

Software is drying up for it, basically (has been for awhile).
Its clear nintendo isnt really going to do much of anything for it anymore, and 3rd party have also dropped it.

So its gonna keep selling abit on what software library it has, but wont have anything new to draw people in.
Also people realise that its replaced by the switch, so not as many will want to invest into something thats basically dead.

Last big titles for 3ds:
Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey
Etrian Odyssey Nexus
Yo-kai Watch 3
Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn
Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth

after that it probably wont get another big(ish) title.

This SHOULD be the last week at least for the next month or so(3-4 weeks) with Nintendo winning WW. KH3/RE2 will give PS4 a hardware boost for the next several weeks in EU/NA

I give it 2 weeks max.

Same here. Maybe even just one, if Japan can be of any indication.

The real test will be how well Switch holds up over the next few months, as barring a surprise announcement of Animal Crossing coming sooner than expected, it looks like they've dropped the ball for the first half of the year.



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

Aye it will have it for a few weeks,thanks to KH3/RE2, then lose again.

It really boggles my mind that they do this every year... So far it is on par with last year (which was pretty dull) with nothing of note in February. Kinda like last year's January.

So Switch is headed for a good start this year by VGC numbers and PS4 have a decrease YOY quite in line with what one would expect from its age, good chance Switch wins the month WW and NPD. Will be interesting to see how many weeks can PS4 steal first position of Switch this year.

For it's age and price. If it was $199 now it would be doing great.
