The Direct really seems to have lit a fire under Splatoon 3.



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)

To all the people making Pokemon COMG comparisons (or thinking about it): previous threads may have double packs count as 1 copy/point when all the SKUs are added together. You can check by adding up the points in the top 20.

I think Boutros also counted them as 2. Not sure about his predecessors, though.

I didn't make a combined table back then. Boutros didn't do it in his early days as well. 



Welp, I guess at this rate it'll be now near impossible for Pokemon to surpass Splatoon 3 before it's release.

I do wonder if there will be any game on PS5 in the future that reach close to these COMG numbers that Splatoon 3 and Pokemon S/V are reaching. Not to say COMG numbers are everything but it’s amazing to see these numbers in the current Japanese market.

Dragon Quest or Monster Hunter could do it, though probably the PS5 would need quite a bit more install base before it could achieve that feat.

Dragon Quest I can see if it’s Switch/PS4/5. If it’s without the Switch and PS4, then I’m not sure. Switch (and Nintendo in general) has a strong Dragon Quest audience and the PS4, despite its waning sales, is still able to sell some software. Monster Hunter I can see once World 2. But, as you said, the install base for the PS5 would have to be significantly better than it is right now.
