@RolStoppable @curl-6 Here is what one of the graphs will look like when you add lifetime sales. What do you think?

Great, would love to see this added to the gap entries as a third chart.



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

I can do that. At least to the ones it makes sense.

Looks good. Also a nice example because Switch and Wii have different sales trajectories and we still have people on this site who believe that Switch will just barely cross 100m lifetime or not at all.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Most of the ones getting a third graph will be the ones with Switch as PS4 and Xbox One have been out for 6 and a half years. 

Once Xbox Series X and PS5 release I'll be doing a bunch of new Gap Charts.
