I wonder what the front page column graph will look like next week. I hope you guys don't get rid of Xbox One and PS4 columns graph yet. IMO Xbox Series and PS5 columns would look nice where the columns of 3ds and Ps Vita currently are...
I ok with that since we wont be seeing a proper portable console anymore on the market, and Switch on its own replaced the whole category and took it to another level.
Holy shit Switch was insane that week. Proving ground one last time before the new gen arrives.
Next week will be very interesting.
I guess Switch total sales will reach 78 million by Dec 31st
Congrats to Nintendo Switch near 600k dominating. Sony PS4 the old champion still going on strong. I need to see the Sony PS5 sales. Oh buddy.
Anyway launch sales are generally very high. You Can look at how much they shipped and that number will be sold. theoretically, sales drop to normal numbers starting february. But considering all the unfulfilled demand for xsx and ps5, it might take a bit more months to see their sales drop. Meanwhile, Switch will keep being THE Monster for the upcoming 2-3 years, until one of the next gen twins takes the lead.(it will probably be ps5 though).
We'll have to see. I got some money bet on the PS5 taking everything away come 2021 and beyond. Sony PS5 is a beast
PS5 ain't gonna suddenly jump to sales far above what the PS4 ever achieved in its first year. Come on now. As heavenmercenary said, Switch should continue dominating for the next two years. By 2023 for sure PS5 should be beating Switch. 2021 Switch will completely dominate, and I'd guess Switch will still be ahead of PS5 in 2022.
