Actually, looking at the NDS numbers, I'm a bit baffled by how fast Nintendo went with the change of the NDS to the 3DS the following. It was still posting insane numbers at that time

without the announcement of 3DS in 2010 (and maybe releasing it a little bit later), I am sure the DS could end with 2-3M more that year and entering stronger in 2011.

They should have released the 3DS in holiday 2011, not in February. That way they could've launched it with Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 and it would've started out stronger. Instead they originally planned to launch it in holiday 2010.

True, but I think Nintendo had their eye on Sony releasing the Vita in holiday 2011 and wanted to have a new handheld on the market before then.  Sony had gained an impressive foothold in the handheld space with the PSP, so Nintendo likely wanted to get a headstart on the next generation of handheld tech.  The same way they cut the legs out from under the Gameboy Advance, which had sold well in a very short period of time, in order to counter Sony's launch of the PSP.

Makes sense that Nintendo wanted a headstart with the 3DS, but I also wish that they waited until Holiday 2011 or even early 2012 to launch it. They could've even waited to announce it until E3 2011 (so it would be after Pokemon BW's launch) and they could've announced Wii U at E3 2012.



They could announced it together with the vita at the E3 2011 stage and release it holiday 2011 or even spring 2012 (as the vita was globally) and the DS would have nice 2010 with 22-23M, and 2011 with 12-15M giving it the edge to pass the PS2 lifetime. But they missed that oportunity .. by a hair ..



Updated numbers with WEEK 19!
PS4 numbers adjusted again!



PS3 and NDS numbers were adjusted to match the newly adjusted VGChartz figures for these consoles in those years!
With the new numbers NSW is now ahead of the NDS by almost 60k, PS5 is behind PS3 by 525k and PS4 is ahead of PS3 by 55k.

Also there is slight change in the final numbers for the year too. NDS did 20.3M insted of 20.5M in 2010, and PS3 did 10.5M instead of 10.4M for 2008, and 635k instead of 670k for 2016

Adjustments to XBSX and NSW have been made!

New poll added! The results from previous polls will be in the bottom of the original post.

XB360'17 was adjusted from 59k to 29k, therefore the XB1'22 has now officially beat the XB360'17. The only console making closest numbers to what XB1 should do this year is 3DS'21 - 35k. (Personally I think it can reach 40k but this one is the closest.) So I changed that comparison to XB1'22 vs 3DS'21.
