Forums - Sales Discussion - September NPD 2019 thread

I don't even do bets on this site but the prediction SwitchUp made is so bold that I am willing to do a permaban bet that it won't happen lol. The Switch outselling the PS4 and the PS5 COMBINED......yeah I would take that bet for sure.....



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

"A cursory look gives these ranges:

XB1: min = 130500, max = 155500
PS4: min = 0, max = 197000
NSW: min = 428000, max = 439500"

Not sure what to put in my charts. I may just split the difference and do an average of them.

What makes those guesses more accurate than others?

Apparently, somebody at Era knows the actual NPD numbers and they've been doing a thing where the people who guess closest get top predictor status. Since the leaks have all been shut down, it's probably the best we're going to get.

We'll take anything we can get at this point.
