His Switch number doesn't seem to make alot of sense. Over 3mil on shelves and in transit? Where does this dude get this from?

The shipment figures included the first wave OLED models which were stockpiled October. Nintendo confirmed passing 90 million sell through in (or by?) October. May not tell us exactly when it happened but Ampere Analysis probably used this figure.

Ah right, forgot about that. Though that begs the question on what Nintendo based this on, since they only for certain know their shipment figures.

Edit: thanks @Zippy6

PS5 outselling XS 2:1 already bodes for another repeat of outselling xbox 5:2. Whats curious is Sony expecting 23M next year, far higher than the PS4 and expecting to take a further 5% marketshare this gen (total console revenue). Either Xbox has to sell more than XB1 so the ratio does not skew further to PS5, or Sony is expecting to beat XSX even more than they did XB1.

Wouldn't you say that a 3.3 percent difference is within the margin of error? I find it interesting that the numbers he's claiming for Xbox differ from VGC by over 10 percent.



My prediction in 2021.

SW: 30m

PS5 16m

XBS: 7.5m

You can click on the link on my sig to go back to our original discussion.  I said 130m was the max for PS5 + X|S, IIRC.

Right now, I am not totally confident in my X|S prediction or even my PS5 prediction if you break them down separately..  That is why I bet PS5 + X|S numbers.  If X|S is higher than PS5 will be lower and vice versa.  At this point I wouldn't be terribly shocked if X|S goes 30m or 70m.  I could see either possibility.  But PS5 numbers will adjust to compensate.

Wow

You're replying to so many of my posts that I'm starting to think you have a crush on me.

Even more reason to not trust these numbers.

Well ok then. Guess the Switch had a ton of unsold stock then.



Expect it to drop around the 60-69.9 mark and thinking more closer to 70M. Markedly better than last generation due to a better launch, more affordable SKU and stronger first party effort.

It kinda feels relevant to this thread: Masahiro Sakurai finally got his Xbox Series X:

We're starting to get new figures suggesting the Xbox Series S is performing on par or above the Series X so at the end, if its purpose as a complementary console works (to the PS5 or the Switch), it can gain a lot of attraction
