That said, the fact that Switch can still put up a convincing fight at this late stage is an impressive feat.

I mean it is close to become the best selling console ever so the impressiveness is total

Personally I expect to stop short of DS and PS2, but yeah third highest of all time is a hell of a run.

After the PS4, Gameboy will follow in short order.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

I did another one of my Game News Roundup going over the latest from the Sony and Microsoft's responses to the UK CMA going over the Microsoft acquisition of Activision Blizzard. As well as talking about God of War Ragnarök and Pokémon Scarlet/Violet breaking sales records.

Think Switch can hit 750K for Pokemon week.

250K Americas
225K Europe
250K Asia
30K Ocenia

Total 755K.

Already got confirmation from Dring that Switch had its biggest week of the year in UK, and we know JP topped 170K. For Spain, NSW has been on fire all year and Vandal is suggesting SV may have blown by the 200K retail launch figure - I wager NSW in Spain this week may have had its biggest week ever (or incredibly close to it).

After the latest NPD, and the following VGChartz adjustments, it looks like PS5 will win this week.
