Indeed a most fortuitous circumstance. Imagine how conflicted people at Nintendo must be right now.  Saddened at the pandemic but elated at the increased sales from it.

Probably also frustrated that now that demand for their system is through the roof, they can't ship enough hardware to meet said demand.

Indeed.  There must be several conflicting feelings within the company...especially depending on the department.

True, I'm not sure if they've shifted to working from home yet but if so that's gotta frustrate the game development side as it'll be harder for them to get their work done. 

Speaking of Nintendo staff though, Aya Kyogoku's gotta be feeling pretty proud; AC:NH is her directorial debut and it's gotta feel good for your first game to be such an absolute gigaton.



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

Last gen had much better legs than this one, but the lead this gen has built up over its earlier years is big enough that it should still end up on top at the end of the day.

360 had gotten a second wind around this time while Xbone has dropped to a trickle.

Switch more than double both the others combined, with shortages and in March to boot.

I knew Animal Crossing was gonna be big, but I didn't expect it to be THIS gargantuan.

The game straight up became a phenomenon. It is everywhere, and it "feels" like the biggest Switch release to date. Which says a lot when you have BotW, Odyssey, Smash, and Pokemon in your library.

Can PS4 and Xbox One sell 18.15 more units before they stop selling?  It is very likely. Though I doubt they will end up selling much more than that.

I reckon they can; PS4 alone should be able to get close to that by the time it's discontinued.

I'm guessing Xbox One has at most five million more sales in it. Give or take a million. Depends on the discounts Microsoft does, before they discontinue it.

Holy moly, the Wii was in it's 2009 holiday season at this point, and the Switch is roughly keeping pace with it... in March.

The gap was over 10 million just 6 months ago, now it's just 3.5 million...
