PS4 crossing 113m, amazing. So close to outsell GameBoy.



I'm hoping PS4 keeps on going! It will make the Switch passing it in a couple years all the more glorious! Go PS4 go!



Seems like this is the baseline for Switch in September, should go up with Mario 3D and Zelda in the coming months.



Are any 3DS/2DS Model being made still?

Very few. Nintendo shipped just 100,000 last quarter.

There's just no stopping the Switch, holy crap. What kinda fuel is this thing running on!?

Most likely not. The New 2DS XL was the last model still in production, but that probably came to an end sometime during the last few months, because Nintendo didn't provide a separate shipment forecast for the 3DS family for the current fiscal year. The 3DS shipped 0.10m units from April to June 2020.



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

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Gamers Club

Switch sold almost 350k on a pretty boring week. We've basically got 4 months left in the year. I figure Switch will sell around 4m total for Sept and Oct combined, considering the 3D Mario collection is coming. Then there are the two holiday months. That is going to be a lot. 10m-ish? Don't know. There is still a lot of demand for Switches at this point. Switch might sell significantly more than 14m for the remainder of the year if Nintendo can produce enough. But 14m seems like a decent enough projection for remaining Switch sales at this point.

Switch is at 15m now, so that would make 29m total for the calendar year, but my holiday number was a very rough guess. I can easily see Switch going higher or lower.



Yeah the Switch is going over the special mythical number 64. Right around the time they rerelease Mario 64. Also the PS4 really is low, they can at least price drop it before the PS5 comes out.
