Interesting to see Persona 5 Strikers on 3rd place despite charting only for PS.

Well, there’s no Switch list in the OP.

It’s probably #2 or #3 on that list behind Bowser’s Fury and Bravely Default 2.

And Bravely Default II didn't make it in the Switch charts. Can't say it's unfortunate because apparently the 9th place, Just Dance 2021, did nice, so maybe BD did relatively ok for what it is. 



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

What an insane performance for the Switch! Beating any records done by PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One and other Switch sales in February! 



Pocky Lover Boy!

Holy fuck! The power of Mario and Bowser!

3D World put in that work, just reiterating just how great Wii U software was. These are the type of sales these games were supposed to be getting.



Feb sales biggest since 2011. If you might recall 2011 had sales like this:

360: 535,000
Wii: 455,000
DS: 454,000
PS3: 403,000
PSP: 78,000

So we can expect that Switch outmatches 360, and PS5/ XBS a bit below or matching Wii and PS3. 2011 had the advantage of 5 healthy systems contributing to $ sales.

The fabled cliff is still nowhere in sight; 2020 might not even have been the peak.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Matt said that P5S is doing well on Switch.



While, the Playstation version is doing the best and the PC version is doing great as well. I wouldn't worry about the Switch version sales wise just because it failed to make the best selling Switch games of the month, since those are usually dominated by Nintendo and they are getting sales numbers that compete with the biggest games on those charts.

There is a cliff, see how steep the increase is? Switch is jumping up a cliff, he just had the chart upside down.

each Nintendo evergreen sku fight against multiplatform release( PC/consoles)+ digital, . The Ps4 version that appears on ps4 charts is easier. So the bar is high, for Nintendo. the game needs to be bonkers to appears in the Nintendo charts.

But Ps4 lead the way in Persona, normal. The Pc is the second because have Persona mainline games and the success of Persona Golden. 

Congrats.

My current prediction is 7.5M, only a 16.7% drop, though I'm willing to go as high as 8M.

In any case, 8m is the floor for 2021.
