Jan-Aug using VGChartz (Final YTD in ())

07 NDS 15.1M (29.3M)

08 NDS 14.2M (29.5M)

09 NDS 13.8M (27.3M)

08 Wii 11.9M (24.1M)

09 Wii 8.4M (21.1M)

20 NSW 14.7M (???)

Considering all of Nintendo's quarterly data has resulted in adjustments up for VGC data so far this year, it's quite possible that actuals for NSW right now are above 07 DS.  We'll see come Q2 results.

Bloody hell, so it's tracking ahead of DS's peak year in YTD.

Switch is pulverizing almost every estimate and prediction made of it.



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

Yup.

2007 NDS was ahead earlier in the year because of Japan.  NDS from June 2006 - June 2007 was burning hot fire, sold like 10M in 12 months.  US/EUR DS stepped up bigger in 2008 vs 07 and then peaked with crazy numbers in 2009 (close to 12M in both markets I think), but by then Japan had dropped off.

NSW 2020 looks like its targeting the same 28-30M that NDS pulled in those three years.  NSW 2021 will challenge 2009 DS numbers in Europe/US IMO and top any DS year.  Pro-model + better supply + better SW lineup + price drops on OG/Lite -- there's just enough potential for growth to counteract the pandemic boost (which may still be a factor next year).



Nintendomination again, NS up.
PS4 slowly waking up from Summer slumber.
XBOne not waking up.
3DS taking its former mini-competitor PSV place in teh realm of teh undead, while the latter finally rests in peace since last year.

Again, thanks for the work on these posts.

The Switch hitting 15 millions by September! That's insane, what other consoles have done this outside of the DS and Wii?

Wii never even got close to that feat.

Insane numbers! Who knew the Switch would pull numbers that the DS have done. 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

While the Switch might explode every records in recent memories, the Xbone is ....

Dead. Let's just say it as it is. It might not reach the 50M by the end of it's run ...

Doesn't seem that long ago when some folks were insisting Switch had no chance of outselling Xbox One because it lacked graphics, third party support, and multimedia features compared to it.

Before the Switch came out I thought the worst it would sell was 3DS + Wii U, so in the 80-90 million range. But that is the worst I thought it would do with around 100 million more likely. Unless sales drop like a rock it will fly past 100 million and even has a chance of matching or outselling the DS and PS2.
