Im very excited. Here are my predictions:

Switch will sell more than PS5.

  • Switch 3.5M
  • PS5 3.3M

Switch beats NDS'10 & 3DS'17

PS5 does not beat PSP'08 but does beat PSP'10

XBOX Series does not beat XBOX 360'08 but does beat XBOX 360'11

  • XBOX Series 170k


Also I think the head to head graphs are a bit Playstation biased but that is fun. Competition is fun. I might be a bit Nintendo bias with my prediction but I have faith in Nintendo (and rather logical stats to back it up).
Let's go Switch! Give it your best!

You are much more positive about the sales than myself (and for both systems) =]

It was a good week for Spiderman2 and quite strong one for PS5 as well.

Are the sales for PS5 increasing due to hype for FFVII Rebirth?



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 160 million (was 120 million, then 140 million, then 150 million)

PS5: 130 million (was 124 million)

Xbox Series X/S: 54 million (was 60 million, then 57 million)

Having 2023 weekly sales in mind, I think it's mostly keeping it's (now) normal pace of 40-50k weekly.

I personally think this year will be the peak year for PS5 sales in Japan, reaching maybe something close to 3M.

That makes more sense. But I do expect the boost in PS5 sales in Feb due to FFVII R.

Comparing Jan 2024 to Jan 2023:
Switch -23.3% decline
PS5 -1.5% decline
Xbox Series +178.5% increase

If this trend is to continue
Switch 3.03M
PS5 2.50M
Xbox Series 252k.

People were waiting for the january sales of PS5 to see if the demand of the slim had been met and a big drop would come or if it would sustain a 50k/week I would say we are on a nice start so far. And switch with less than 25% drop is just fantastic.
