2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

Can you link to where you got these numbers?

Edit: NVM found them.



Nintendo typically has its highest weeks in December rather than Black Friday, right? 



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

Correct.  Since Japan has their biggest week leading up to Christmas, it impacts Nintendo greater.

Thanks; this will be a shirt-lived record then, can't wait to see how high its peak week reaches this month.

Where did you get official weekly numbers?

I am surprised that the best week for Wii wouldn't be in Dec 2009 considering it sold 3.81m for the whole month.

Those are just best BF weeks.  Not best weeks overall.
