Quite the boring week so I will raise the question. Is it possible that MK8 Deluxe will eventually outsell these games?

Still Switch lotteries in Japan??



Another YoY loss for Switch. 3DS still above PS4 because the news of discontinuation. Nothing much of interest of the software front.



Signature goes here!

It seem inevitable. Splatoon and Pokemon for sure. Splatoon should be passed next year. Eventually another Pokemon game will come out and Sw/Sh sales will drop further allowing it to be passed with ease. Smash will take a couple more years but with Kart sales consistently a few thousand ahead of it week after week, Smash will eventually be caught, though I think Smash will stay within like 300k of Mario Kart retail sales lifetime. Smash and Mario Kart will both end up over 5 million retail. Splatoon and Pokemon I think will both end up in the 4.5 - 4.7 million range.



Around the Network

Switch only sold 70.5k this week which means stock is low again. I'm surprised that they didn't ship more to Japan.

Also, I have a question. This is week 39 but it only goes to Sept 27. If we go forward 13 weeks (91 days) from here we get to Dec. 27 at week 52. Does that mean Dec 27 is the end of the sales year? Or is this a 53 week year?



Low Stock for RFA and probably Switch



They restock the Animal Crossing bundle in the west so Im guessing Japan had to suffer due to that. Still a dominating number for both Switch hardware and software



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Another significant loss against 2019, but no surprise considering this was week 2 of Switch Lite. 2020's YTD lead has shrunk to 1.4m, but now we have four rather modest weeks for comparison ahead of us.

What's up in the air is how good this year's holiday season can be without a major first party release (as in, guaranteed 1m+ seller). It might take until December before we'll see another week that is comfortably above 100k.

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

Quiet week.

Switch to PS4 ration at 24:1.

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