AC is indeed huge, but that's literally their only big game for the whole year as of now. Insiders suggest BOTW2 is a 2021 game, Prime 4 is still hiring people and probably won't come out til 2022-2023. It's a very bleak outlook at the moment, and Nintendo's history of prematurely abandoning their consoles makes me nervous.

I am hoping for a new 3D Mario game. Whether we are talking Mario Odyssey 2 or something else. My dream game would be a full remake of Mario 64, but I know that is VERY unlikely. 

The 3D Mario team will have had 3 years since Odyssey this year, which is usually how long it takes them to make a game, so that's actually not too far fetched, assuming Nintendo's not jumping ship to a successor and leaving Switch out to dry. Personally I'd most love to see Mario Galaxy 3 for Switch.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

January 2020 is the 75th month of the Xbox One being on sale.

Oof, that first graph, now that's falling off a cliff.

Switch vs 3DS in Japan – VGChartz Gap Charts – January 2020

Switch Vs. 3DS Japan:

Gap change in latest month: 309,063 – 3DS

Gap change over last 12 months: 354,932 – 3DS

Total Lead: 2,873,744 – 3DS

Switch Total Sales: 12,027,627

3DS Total Sales: 14,901,371

January 2019 is the 35th month that the Nintendo Switch has been available for in Japan. During the latest month the Switch closed the gap to the 3DS by 309,063 units. In the last 12 months, the 3DS has outsold the Switch by 354,932 units. The 3DS is currently ahead of the Switch by 2.87 million units.

The 3DS launched in February 2011 (however, 3DS sales have been aligned to March 2011, since it only launched at the end of February in Japan) and the Nintendo Switch launched worldwide in March 2017. The Switch in its first 35 months has sold 12.03 million units, while the 3DS sold 14.90 million units.

The 3DS has sold 24.59 million units lifetime in Japan through December 2019. The Switch is currently 12.56 million units behind the lifetime sales of the 3DS.

There is a typo, it says that 3DS furthered its lead in Jan but later on say Switch closed the gap in Jan.

Honestly, it could be its own thread. Interesting sections for me : 

Due to the ageing console cycle, sales of games machines are down 15.8% in January compared to the same period a year before, with revenue down 13.1%. The only console to sell better in January 2020 vs 2019 was Nintendo Switch (up more than 17%). Switch accounted for almost 52% of all consoles sold across the retail markets, with the Neon version the most popular individual product.

50% of all tracked games sold last month were on PS4, followed by PC (18.8%), then Switch (16.3%) and finally Xbox One (11.9%). Again, Switch's position may well have been higher if Nintendo supplied its digital data. In terms of boxed games alone, PS4 still comes out top with a 47.3% share, Switch is second with a 32.9% share, with Xbox following at 25.1%. It's worth noting that Game Pass data (the subscription service that is popular on Xbox) isn't included in these figures.

PlayStation 4 vs Xbox 360 in the US – VGChartz Gap Charts – January 2020

PS4 Vs. X360 US:

Gap change in latest month: 132,199 – X360

Gap change over last 12 months: 3,755,474 – X360

Total Lead: 960,768 – X360

X360 Total Sales: 33,331,347

PS4 Total Sales: 32,370,579

In January 2020 the gap in the US between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox 360 grew in favor of the Xbox 360 when you align launches. The Xbox 360 sold 132,199 more units than the PlayStation 4 in the last month and by 3.76 million units in the last 12 months. After 75 months behind, the Xbox 360 is now in the lead by 960,768 units.

The PlayStation 4 launched in the US on November 15, 2013, while the Xbox 360 launched on November 22, 2005. The PlayStation 4 has sold 32.37 million units, while the Xbox 360 sold 33.33 million units during the same timeframe.

The Xbox 360 sold 45.14 million units lifetime in the US. The PlayStation 4 needs to sell another 12.77 million units to surpass the Xbox 360 in the US.

360 storming ahead of both PS4 and Xbone as the Kinect boost takes effect. It might be a long time before any system outsells 360's total in the US.

Switch during 2025.

That would be awesome. Hopefully its peak is merely delayed by this year's unfortunate shitfuckery instead of suppressed.
