interested to see shadow's interpretation of this

Short version:

Not the Dow/NASDAQ/S&P kind. The other kind.

No, really. I'll detail it once we get PS4 & XBO numbers and I update my charts.

I believe we also finally got June numbers for Switch (~365k)

Whoa. That's way down from the 500k+ estimate from before. That means June was actually worse than July in terms of weekly averages. That's definitely going to require some chart revisions.

lol, i look forward to it! :)

Yowza. Looks like the PS4 had the same problems with stock that the XBO did back in July. Well, maybe not quite as bad, but that's still a steep drop-off from September.

Well, time to update my charts. I'll make a post some time this afternoon.

Stock.  We'll see next month if they were holding back for Black Friday/Christmas or if they're trying to drain the channels to make way for PS5.  Surely its a mix of both.

So PS4 overtracked by around 100k in NA.

They be making room on shelves for that humongous PS5 it seems.



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

Wow!

Does anyone know the record for NPD October? And if so, what are the records for NPD November and December while we're at it?

The record is I believe ~804k for Wii's October 2008. This is the second place now though. 

November and December also go to Wii, Nov. 2008 with 2.04m, and Dec. 2009 with 3.81m, which is also the record for best month tracked by the NPD for a console ever. 

EDIT: The data I was looking at for this was older. I can't seem to find the most recent records though just by looking around here and online, but it seems those may still be the records.

Thanks.

I do think Switch has a decent chance at breaking that 2.04m record.  Next month is going to be big.  Dec. 2009 though is too big a hurdle.  I seem to recall that 2nd place is nowhere near 3.81m.  That is just a crazy number of systems for a single month in the US alone.

NPD All Console Years >6M (Since 2001) vs. 2020 NSW

Some specific figures might be outdated/estimates.

Second biggest month ever is NDS 2009 3.31M.  3rd biggest is NDS 2008 3.04M.  

It just dawned on me how huge a phenomenon the Wii was in 2008. The Switch is ahead of PS2 by over 200K units, knocking the PS2 down to 3rd, but the Wii is still 71K ahead of the Switch.

2009 should have been the Wii's biggest year, but there was this lull in the Spring/Summer lull - three months in 2010 even beat 2009 months which shows it's a little bit more than an standard expected decline. Especially consindering the Wii's best winter and autumn sales were both the 2009 seasons.  It had an insanely strong Winter and Autumn in 2009. 2010, despite being a reduction, was still a solid year.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Game drought plus they waited too long to drop the price. Hopefully they dont make the same mistake with Switch and immediately drop the price if demand takes a bit hit.

Pikmin 3 debut is disappointing. I expected it to at least outsell SMP and NSMBUD
