Now that's more like it. Switch outsells every other system combined.

With Luigi's Mansion arriving the week after this, then Pokemon two weeks later, then the holiday season, it's about to go into hypermode. 

Also, this is COD week right, is that why both PS4 and Xbone are up slightly?

Yes, COD: MW is the main reason for the increase in PS4 and Xbox One sales.

Next week also has the Pokemon edition Lite model which should shift some units.

Alrighty, for some reason I thought that came out alongside Sword/Shield. Yep, from here on out we're in for an interesting ride. 

Gotta say after so many years of the Wii U selling like trash, it feels so good to see Nintendo on fire again.



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

Yep, even the 3DS only sold moderately well outside of Japan so its definitely nice to see such strong sales in each region.

Not only every system combined, but you're including the 10k 3ds in that combination which are of course other Nintendo systems that they are going to be selling software to, Nintendo really are doing great work with the Switch from a hardware and software side of things, hopefully they keep riding that wave and don't end up bailing from the top of it and falling on their faces or just getting complacent and just riding it out until it dies down.

Good time to be Nintendo right now, upcoming Luigi's Mansion 3 and Pokemon will bring us into 2020 where Animal crossing will drop after it has had those extra months in the oven, holiday season should be great unless there is something really bad in Pokemon but I can't see it happening at this stage, they seem to be very good at dropping quality 85%+ titles on a regular basis.

Switch 36% up YOY, very nice.

So much for claims that 2018 would be its peak year.

Depending on what big releases Nintendo has planned for 2020, the peak year will likely be 2019 or 2020. Who knows when BotW 2 and Metroid Prime 4 will release.

That was always a silly claim. It made little to no sense from the start



Any guesses on what week Switch passes the Xbox this year? I think by week ending Dec 21st it should do the trick.
