1.8m in two months in the US alone.  Switch basically got an extra holiday season this year.  Crazy.

This boom is going to do wonders for late spring/summer games like Xenoblade, PM origami, GOT and even TLOU 2 despite fan backlash. I expect ever greens to benefit hugely as well, MK8 deluxe to ship 2.5m worldwide for Q1.

Interesting to know if anyone made one of those bold sales predictions about MK8D? i know some guy or guys said Smash would sell 25m and Odyssey 20m and they were mostly told to stop living in cloud cukoo land. If Someone said 40m for MK8D back in 2017 then i think they would have faced ridicule like nothing seen before.

I hope this is close enough for you.  I included the "appropriate" reply in the link.

You even said 50m! That was bold. I agree, the way things are playing out i think the game will finish closer to 50m than 40m. This would make it the best selling game on a single console in history and no i don't count the free pack in that was wii sports.

Insanity. Impressive considering how supply constrained they all are. It’s rare to actually see any of these consoles in the wild around here.

Didn’t know Switch eclipsed one million in March. Got damn.



If Xbox One can sell this much given its market share, Series X has nowhere to go but up. I think taking back the US is a strong possibility. Quite possibly all of North and South America. Canada’s habits mirror the states and the brand is strong in Latin America

are these the real US numbers that leaked?

or

are they crazy esitmates by Pachter?
(because if their just his estimates their worth nothing to me, I 'll happily take VGCs own numbers over his estmiates anyday)

Those are the numbers Pachter saw from the NPD report.

His predictions were:

Switch - 400K
PS4 - 235K
XB1 - 175K

Patcher being around 50% right (predicted half the number) is probably the closest he have been to be right =p

I find funny PS4 numbers are higher than his Switch prediction
