By the 11th week of the year, the Switch was already up 400k, so it wasn't down yoy. 

Yes, looking at weekly numbers here WW but I was referring to NPD numbers which was down for the first 2 months YoY. (January and February) No Need to split hairs. 

Let's not act like Animal Crossing had the bigger impact here. Switch got a way bigger boost than the others. Sure it was suppose to be a bit bigger but at this scale nah.

poor 3DS tho

It is 9 years old, it had its time in the limelight and now it's time for it to go. Happens with every system, it's the natural way of things.

With numbers like this and no FY forecast in their last report, production has either already discontinued or will soon.

It'll finish up around 76 million.



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

You should probably mention NPD then lol otherwise your point is really misleading. Also Im not sure what splitting hairs means tbh

It means he was blatantly incorrect yet somehow wants to blame your for it. What's scary is at least one person agrees with that. Guess truth and facts aren't a priority for everyone here.

I wasn't incorrect at all though. Switch was down for the first 2 months YoY according to NPD. I was factually correct and others have agreed with that statement, so take your defensiveness elsewhere.

Is this the NPD thread? Simple question. Even you, theoretically, shouldn't be able to get this wrong.

In that case, you should take your cherrypicking elsewhere too.



DON'T WIN ME CHIBI BUDDY DON'T WIN ME.

ANIMAL CROSSING NEW LEAF FRIEND CODE:- 5129 1175 1029. MESSAGE ME.
ANDY MURRAY:- GRAND SLAM WINNER!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

If you were being intellectually honest, you would've specified NPD in your post. You did not. 

Your history on VGChartz leaves little doubt as to your intent.

Last response and then I am done with you as my initial comment was to Trunks and Mason replied which resolved itself.

This is a sales thread for WW numbers and “regional” breakdowns.  Which Trunks specifically broke down into regions such as Americas, Europe, and Asia etc. If I want to comment on any of those “regions” or how those numbers compare to earlier NPD’s and Covid-19 I am allowed to do so.

Trunks made an observation, I commented on it and the issue was resolved. If this site’s very own writer can comment on theoretical numbers on how Covid-19 affects the industry, I am permitted to respond. You do not dictate on what I am allowed to comment on so “even you, theoretically” should understand that without being so defensive.  Regardless, it’s done.



There are people pretending that switch wouldn't be up without corona virus and ignoring animal Crossing. Switch would still be up by a fair lot, just not this much. Hell even now any stick they have sells out. It;s just a matter of how many they can produce.



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

My first response wasn't to you either and it had already said all that was necessary, yet you in fact chose to quote me. So since you're starting yet another post on a false premise, I can feel free to just ignore the rest. It's just more baloney anyway.

Without the bump in gaming caused by COVID-19, the PS4 and Xbox One would likely be down 40% or more year-over-year. 

Very true and without the Covid-19 bump the Switch yearly numbers would be drastically different to, considering the first 2 months this year it was down YoY and then went to record breaking months. 

Pretty sure the major factor for the switch's boost was ACNH since when it released, the switch started selling at +100k-200k YoY. Question is how long will that effect last.
