If we were to apply the same reasoning to the PS5/XSX as some people have applied to the Switch, they are only doing well because of COVID

2021 NSW continues to build its lead over 2020 (+28% YTD) and maintain #1 spot for first 6 weeks.

VGC Q1 record is 07 NDS at 5,424K, followed by 20 NSW 5,119K.  If they can hold up supply till March, MHR might help get it past the 5,500K mark this year.

Damn son!  I didn't realize Switch was on track so far to have the best Q1.  2007 DS even had an incredible week 6, but NSW is still a bit ahead overall.  Switch is also way above what it was doing last year at this time.  We all know that the Animal Crossing + COVID boost is coming in March, but this year has Monster Hunter and a stronger software lineup overall.  2021 is definitely going to be another big year.

Really big numbers for the switch.

According to some rumours, PS5 will start to increase in the next weeks onwards.

Xbox series is doing way better than Xbone but Microsoft expected the series S to have more demand than the other.



Switch > all other platforms combined, and the 9th gen consoles finally starting to gather a little momentum.
Xbox Series even outsold PS4 in Europe lulz



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

It depends on how much of each they produce and send right now. Two weeks ago they sold double the Series S than X in Spain, for example, as per Vandal. Spencer said in the long term the S will sell more, but not at launch, which is what is happening.

The Xbox Series has a really cool design. So cool I want them just for decoration. It looks like they lifted some design philosophy from Apple.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Yeah I actually quite like the look of the Series X with its bold, monolithic minimalism. I hope it can find more success than the Xbone did.

400k for the Switch!!!!

Can you explain these numbers, please? What do these numbers represent? Sorry for my noobish question, but I dont get the meaning of the numbers.
