Nice bump for PS5! Switch almost exactly last week, nice!



It's nice that we didn't have to wait too long for the split data!



Signature goes here!

Mario Party's legs are insane.



Switch sold 300K+ on week 1 last year?



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.

Around 5...unless we get that rumored Mario Kart 9, Donkey Kong and Zelda this year in which case I think it has its best year, especially if ps5/xbox stays hard to find throughout the year.

312k, early last year it even tracked ahead of the DS' best year for the first few months.

Thanks to Hiska-kun on installbase for these.



So Week 52 was around the same as 2020 it seems and Week 1 is much lower. I guess that’s fine.



The first half of 2021 was very promising, but the second half of the year disappointed a bit. Switch clearly lost momentum since the announcement of the OLED model. Even in Switch's lauch year 2017 it sold more during the holiday season. This looks a bit unnatural, so numbers should be supply constrained.

I expect 2022 numbers to be below 2021 and 2020, but above 2019. Weekly baseline should be around 60k, hopefully no week below 50k to stay healthy.
