VGChartz Top Years W1-15

Adjustments push NSW 2021 Q1 up to 5,959K - biggest non-holiday quarter ever.  

Buffer over 2020 is now down to 644K and will be eaten away through week 19, but only needs to do 383K a week min to fall behind, so this buffer will hold.  From week 20 - 37, NSW 2021 should have the advantage as 2020 succumbs to supply issues.  

-Healthy signs right now that NSW 2021 will enter the shopping season in Q4 with a buffer over 2020.

-NSW needs to average 454K per week to match Q2 2020

-NSW needs to average 464K per week to hit 12M by the halfway point of week 26

-NSW needs to average 388K per week for the next 8 weeks to be the fastest to 10M (23 weeks total; NDS 07 & NSW 20 did it in 24)

-7M will be achieved in W16 - fastest ever (NDS 07 & 08 & NSW 20 - 17 weeks)

-8M will likely be achieved in W18 - fastest ever (NDS 07 & NSW 20 - 19 weeks)

-VGC seems to be projecting US NPD April at 690-700K.

Added PS4 2017 since its above NSW 2019.  NDS 06 and 10 could be added too as they were >20M years - I'll consider it, but this list will eventually be dominated by NDS/NSW and everything else way behind.

Also added a rolling 52W calculation for NSW 2020 and 2021.  NSW 2021 finally hit NDS peak figures and crossed 29M mark in early March.  We might see it surge past that in June/July and crack 30M.  NDS peak is calendar year 2007 (2008 is 53W).

Xbox Series still not looking too hot. As well as getting more supply of the X online, they need to start putting out some first party software soon.

After the mediocre performance of the Xbone they don't seem to be trying as hard as they could to turn things around.

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

the figure here on vgchartz is 115.4 sold until mid april. It have to be adjusted because 115.9 are shipped until 31st march. which means around 115.7M have to be sold until 31st march. with the sales of the two weeks of april it have to be 115.8M.

Why? How do you know only 200k PS4s are on shelves?

The PS5 is selling much 4x units of the PS4 even 5x sometimes weekly and has 600k on store shelves.

Therefore it is normal for PS4 to have 200k max on store shelves, even those are much .. with weekly numbers around 50k, it is very hard to believe more than 200k will be on store shelves.



I'm way more happy about Nintendo's success than I have any right to be. It just, makes me smile, can't help it. I love the content.



I don't need your console war.
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor.
You're power hungry, spinnin' stories, and bein' graphics whores.
I don't need your console war.

NO NO, NO NO NO.

That's just wishful thinking though, not a sound argument

At this time, Switch is running like Usain Bolt on steroids.

So like Ben Johnson?
