Great. One of the best VGC threads 2020 Edition. Unfortunately the only interesting thing about this year would be how much higher can Switch sales jump? Or will they at all? I personally bet on Switch selling more this year than the last. 23m maybe. As for next-gen Sony and MS consoles, I don't think it would make sense to include them in this thread until 2022. When they will have a full year on the market to compare with.

Yeah, Switch winning by far is a given for this year. The questions are more like by how much and how far down the other two will drop down to.

Comparing the Switch 2020 to the best years of PS4 and/or Wii might get very interesting, though.

Switch has already beaten ps4’s best year in 2019. So, it’s how far higher can it go at this point.

Excellent to see the new year thread up and running.

One thing I noticed. Wasn't there a column for the week number in last years thread?



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

You are correct.

I decided to forego that column this year since I usually edit the thread title with the week number every time the new numbers are posted. Which I’m going to do once I get home from work and have access to my laptop.

Thought that the Switch's peak would be last year, but maybe not. Hard to say until they announce something besides Animal Crossing for this year.

PS4 2017 had a great year, but a pretty weak holiday season. Switch will beat PS4 2017 in the end for sure due to this, but January through October, PS4 would be very competitive.



Switch up 32% yoy and counting.



Switch isn't slowing down at all.



2 weeks in and switch is almost at 1 million sales. This will be a big year.



This is some incredible momentum for the Switch. Either people are using money/gift cards from the holidays to purchase it or people are buying in anticipation of Animal Crossing. Probably the former rather than the latter, but I look forward to seeing what kind of baseline we can expect.
