Should do a weekly comparison of NSW 2020 vs. DS 07 08 09 and Wii 08 using VGC numbers.

I might put it together if no one else has easy access - NSW 2020 might be on pace for fastest to 10M in a calendar year.

Switch domination continues



So this is the 3rd? week in a row where the XBO is up to around 80k after floating around 50k for quite a while. What's up with that? 😌

It it related to the plague? The supply constraints of the other systems?

PS4 still a beast in Europe

It seems that scalpers are working hard with the switch!

Just checked on it.

The strongest first 5 months of a year were to DS in 2007 which did 9.125M with may included.

The Switch with the 3rd week of may is at 8.7M for this year, so it have to make a bit over 400K the last week to beat the DS numbers in 2007.. and probably won't.

However it is still very impressive, it beats every other console on every other year.

P.S. Just to report a bug.. the hardware by date chart doesn't show all of the numbers when you put the cursor over the lines .. it shows only some of the console numbers..

Yup I saw.  Could be close - Chris on Era (kind fellow who has posted the MC/Famitsu numbers for over a decade) is guestimating that Nintendo held some stock aside for the Xenoblade launch.  So if JP bumps up to 70-80K and rest of the world hops like 5-10% it could match the 5-month total. 

Quite impressive either way at this point, it's locked to beat the 5 month total of 08/09 DS and 08 Wii.

Indeed, if more people had the option to buy from a retailer its numbers would be even higher than this.



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)

What's with Xbox One doing surprisingly respectable numbers?

Coronavirus has caused a bump in gaming sales across the board since mid-March. The Xbox One is the cheapest console on the market, but Microsoft has run a lot of deals for the console. 

Basically this, Xbox One X bundles were slashed to $299 Mid April.
