doomed..... eternal doom

As it stands currently 2021 Switch is outpacing 2007 DS (which means peak DS, best Q1 ever) but its very doubtful that will continue until end of Q1

The only way, new model plus AAA 2D Mario, Zelda Botw 2, and a Switch Sports game, in the same year.



How is the PS5 stacking up against PS3 first year? It's not looking too good..



Top 10 and Hardware updated



Around the Network

Momotaro keeps getting more powerful and powerful. Wtf is up this game? Is it a meme in Japan at this point?



Some takeaways.

Playstation hardware bad sign: YTD PS4 + YTD PS5 = 29.124 + 28.118 = 57.242 < 71.928 = last YTD PS4

Playstation hardware good sign: weekly PS5 = 7.328 > 6.325 = last year weekly PS4

Switch: YTD this year is already 150K up against last year. I thought Japan would peak first for Switch, because it is closer to saturation, but Switch is still growing there. That will continue at least until MonHun this year (and about the time is AC last year).

Xbox Series S can break 100 units YTD next week.

While everything is dropping coming out of the holidays, Momotaro is somehow still rising.

Pokemon is close to 4M.

EDIT:

I overlooked something... YTD 3DS = 1.811 >>> 403 = YTD Xbox Series X+S

96k, its a 77% increase YoY

The cliff 

He was correct - it's just a long climb, not a long fall...

At this rate, Switch will be at almost 1M for the year at the end of January already, which is absolutely bonkers.

Also Momotaro doesn't want to stop anytime soon. Still laughing about the predictions that the game will not get past 1M total due to first week sales.

PS5, on the other hand... I really hope it's just supply issues and not low demand, because with those sales numbers it's getting seriously trashed by the Wii U and the Vita in Japan of all things.

Amazing Switch sales this week result in a very clear win over the same week last year.

The upcoming 2020 bump in week 6 was caused by Nintendo's announcement of imminent Switch shortages due to factories in China being put on hold. The same reason caused the valley before Animal Crossing's release in week 12.

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