Well, there was a cliff, Switch just climbed up it instead of falling off it.

Cliffs defying the laws of physics I suppose

PS5 needs to sell an average of 42,000 units per week for the next 12 weeks to reach 5 million units later this year. Spider 2 and the launch of the new model will help

The new model will be much more of a hindrance than any help, considering that the prices go up by 10%, not down, and that the current model has already some supply issues, so those sales won't be boosted much, either.



Anytime I see sales I think switch 2 will be 2025.

Switch at 3.16 million in 2023 with 12 weeks left of the year, on track to sell 4.5 million for the full year and only 2 million behind the lifetime record of NDS. Lifetime NDS sales are tracked at 32.87 million by Media Creates and 32.99 million officially shipped by Nintendo.

Switch 7th year is already ahead of the DS's 7th year without the holiday quarter, that's crazy!

Almost all of the DS's 2010 belongs to its sixth year.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV will outsell Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I was wrong.

Yeah seems like of weird to compare DS 2004 (~1 month, only NA/JP) to 2017 (~10 months, WW)



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Switch 2023 should start to gain a lot of ground on 2022 now, as the next 3 weeks were slow last year. 

It's also built a 500k lead over 2019, which it should remain ahead of now with the help of Wonder. A whopping 1.3 million ahead of 2017 and 2018 as well. Crazy performance for a platform in its 7th year.

That's why I have a sales thread where the charts are launch aligned, and the years are compared correctly. Here is the specific chart for the DS vs Switch in Japan lifetime.

And as you can see Switch is making the 2008 level of DS's numbers for this year.

My sales comparison threads:

Ultimate Showdowns: JP 2023 / JP 2024 / 2024 / 2023 / 20222021

Lifetime Showdown / Historical Showdown / YOY Charts / 140M+ Club Chart

Playstation Sales in Japan

- PS1 and PS2 numbers are from Game Data Library and Media Create
- PSP, PSV and PS3 are from Media Create
- PS4 and PS5 are from Famitsu
.
EDIT: the numbers i originally used for PS1 were from Game database library's website and appear to be outdated, the newer numbers GDL posted on twitter reduces the PS1 total from 19.003m to 17.889m and i have adjusted. This is more in line with famitsu's lifetime estimation for PS1 of around 17.5m in Japan.

It's wild to see Sony's first 3 systems (PS1, PS2, PSP) sold over 20 million and now they barely can sell 10 million systems. Ultimately I think the PS5 will sell less than the PS4.
