Those are some beastly numbers from the Switch. Fantastic. The season + pokemon are really a nice boost.
Ps4 holding up there. Solid numbers for a 6yo console.
And 19 people in Japan just discovered the meaning of true happiness.

I'm guessing Famitsu will stop tracking the PS Vita at the end of year. When they stop tracking it so will we. 3DS likely only has until the end of 2020 until Nintendo stops selling it.

It is exciting news. I would never have thought the Switch would have overtaken the Xbox One as quickly as it did. Seeing the concept of the Switch I knew it was going to be a success with Nintendo combining their home console and handheld developers onto one platform.

Black Friday followed by Cyber Monday next week, December also tends to be a strong month for Nintendo platforms I think Switch did near enough 1m a week last year in the month due to Smash.

One big difference in 2019 is Black Friday and Cyber Monday are one week later. In 2018 Black Friday was on November 23 and this year it is on November 29.

Here are the Switch sales for the final 2 months of 2018 according to VGChartz estimates:

10-Nov-18 257,903
17-Nov-18 653,055
24-Nov-18 1,373,280
1-Dec-18 799,344
8-Dec-18 1,238,167
15-Dec-18 1,338,351
22-Dec-18 1,470,755
29-Dec-18 786,701
5-Jan-19 432,991

Same, but if told anyone in 2017 that the Switch will overtake the XBO before 2020, I'm sure most would have called you a fool or something around those lines. Seeing the Switch actually competing saleswise with the PS4, the Wii and even the DS (so far) is very exiting indeed.

I remember people saying the Switch was going to flop when it was announced. Seems silly looking back. I don't see the Switch outselling the DS, but 100 million I see happening and possibly outselling the PS4.

Yeah, there was a thread were we tried to guess when the Switch would overtake the XB1. My guess was like Q4 2020 I think.



With every last adjustments considered here, the Switch has this situation now for Q3 :

If the same pace could keep going until Dec 31th, the Q3 would have a total of ~13,9 millions, which could have been possible with Animal crossing fitting the gap in December. This makes me wonder if they have not decided to extend the momentum by delaying AC just to avoid a too huge spike in FY2020 Q3 and remain with nothing else for the next 6-9 months.
