Sword/Shield is at 22.64m now. I think BD/SP actually will end up in the 22-24m range while Sw/Sh will end a few million above that.

Sw/Sh is at 23.9mil.

I was looking at Nintendo's website.  They must not have updated it yet.  

https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/finance/software/index.html

That is still in the 22-24m range though which is where I think BD/SP will end and Sw/Sh will be a few million above that.

Lol, yes they did update it last week. Try loading the page, I had that issue too once. Also try Wikipedia, all the other updated games are there too. You can find their financial explanatory material here on their website: https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/events/index.html



Just over 20m would be my guess.
Played and enjoyed original diamond back in the day. Enjoyed the remake slightly more, idk why but i found it more addictive.

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

That did it.  I hit reload and the numbers are permanently fixed.  Weird.

I'd say 20-22 million

Bonus question: don't plan to play any of the versions.

18-19m, I think Arceus will eat into the legs a bit.



my predictions:

Let's Go: 16 million
Sw/Sh: 29 million
BD/SP: 19 million
LA: 22 million



20-21.9 million. It seems like a front-loaded game to me.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 161 million (was 73 million, then 96 million, then 113 million, then 125 million, then 144 million, then 151 million, then 156 million)

PS5: 115 million (was 105 million) Xbox Series S/X: 48 million (was 60 million, then 67 million, then 57 million)

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)
