With a new model, Mario party and Metroid, October 2021 is only up by around 50k-100k compared to October 2020.
Interesting numbers for sure.
Wouldn't surprise me if their numbers for FY2021 ended being lower than their forecast of 24m.
Yeah but this is the biggest October in VGChartz history, so its still impressive.
Here was my US Oct 2021 guess last week after week 1.
On IB Benji says OLED is already highly supply constrained in the US. Oct NPD numbers will be something.
Week 1 293K (225K OLED / 70K Other) < Using VGC's USA figure
Week 2 120K (60K OLED / 60K Other)
Week 3 120K (70K OLED / 70K Other)
Week 4 200K (120K OLED / 80K Other) < Fresh shipment at the end of the month along with Mario Party
700-750K, maybe higher. Think it'll be fairly competitive with Oct 2020.
Actuals so far:
Week 1 293K
Week 2 138K
If VGC numbers hold up, the Switch NPD OCT 2021 has a solid shot at topping NPD OCT 2020. Only needs about 300K in the next two weeks - all dependent on supply.
Actuals so far w/adjustments
Week 1 293K
Week 2 128K
Week 3 147K
Week 4 143K
Total 712,800. Incredibly close to last October, most likely record in terms of revenue/spend and if there's upside to this estimate, we could be ahead of Oct 2020.
NSW 2020 was 736K.
