So PS5 first 4 days. XSXS first 6 days.
First month from launch until 2020.12.6 because the 30th of November is in that week.

Deadline to enter is October 31st

Template:

[First Week:]
PS5: xxx.xxx
PS5 DE: xxx.xxx

PS5 Total: xxx.xxx

XSX: xxx.xxx

XSXS Total: xxx.xxx

[First Month:]
PS5: xxx.xxx

I'd say this warrants it's own thread.

I gave my estimation last week already, so I won't do it again this week.

Agreed.

I'd prefer if it was it's own thread, I don't want people to intersect both subject on the same thread honestly.

Anywoooo,

Base performance of the Switch are A-okay at this time of the year. And with the slave of announcements with got today, it seems we might have our 2021 Spring season secured already.

MHW did 3.5 -4 million.

Considering the series's past, with neither 3DS or SW entries showing this breakout factor, I expect something to the series usual performance: 3.5 - 5 million.

MHW did 2.8m it sold less than the prior entries on 3DS and PSP.

Physical only. MHW digital was already near 700k in its first few weeks. The director later also said MHW was able to retain the JP audience from previous games, so I'm assuming its closer to 4 million than 3.5.

You're going to have to link that comment from the director because as recently as July in Capcom's investor's report they admitted that MHW had not been as popular with the MH audience in Japan as they hoped and it was the reason the main NS was getting an MH project targeted at that group which we know is now not one but two ground up games for it this was in regards to whether a port of MHW was in the works for NS.

This week's ratio is 39:1.

Also, imagine if you told someone back in October last year that Ring Fit would be topping the charts in September 2020.



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

Well, I remember telling you that RFA has a good chance to become a 10m seller globally. That was probably in December or January though.

Or was that about a slim chance that RFA could become a 20m seller globally?



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

I know I said it in November but can't remember if I said it any earlier than that.

Just goes to show not to discount something unconventional; I mean look at Fit Boxing, it's a million seller now, few people would've expected that to cross that mark.
