Forums - Sales Discussion - May NPD 2020: Switch ~530K; PS4/XBO >150K

That is a really quick 20 million. Switch is just unstoppable in the US.

Seems from the PS4 and Xbox numbers that the lockdown boost is subsiding a bit, though they are still both up year on year, especially the Xbone.

I've adjusted our Switch sales for May up slightly to 435,027 units. I'll wait until we get more information before making more adjustments. I haven't touched our PS4 or Xbox One figures.

Got the leaks on Era.

That gives you NSW.  PS4 and XBO are further into the discussion.

Looks like I underestimated the Switch a bit and overestimated the other two a fair bit.



530k with supply shortages, crazy year for Switch



Does anyone have the PS2 and DS 2005 and 2006 monthly NPD numbers?

I have scavenged a couple of months, but mostly cannot find them on here or GAF or through articles.



Another great result for Switch, now at 3m YTD. If none of Nintendo's games have to be delayed into next year (be it due to corona or another reason), then Switch could cross 25m LTD by the end of 2020. But while an 8m year is possible, 7m already constitutes greatness in the US market, so if it's only that, there's still more than enough reason to be satisfied with Switch's performance in 2020.



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

Holy fuck. Half a million on MAY! Im kicking myself that my first prediction for the Switch back in Jan 2017 was 60million..... 2020 is an Insane year for Nintendo.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.
