my highlights: 50% of PS5 sales are from Europe... Xbox series selling more than PS5 in Americas. .. and NS topping all regions.
looks like no slowing down on the switch for a couple more years.
You would think the new OLED model would increase sales tho.
I have the feeling that Nintendo is going to sell as many Switches OLED as it can produce this Year.
So some takeaways from the Xbox sales, this is the 3rd week in a row that it outsold PS5 in the US and about the 5th week where in Japan, Xbox Series X/S sold 3-4k, which is pretty decent for Microsoft.
The switch is simply killing it!!!
But we've been told the Switch was down the hill from now on
It would take a huge turn for them to fall under 20m. After all they still have the price cut card to play and if they're smart they do so if next year's sales start slowing.
Yeah next year Pokemon Legends, Splatoon 3, BotW2, who knows what else, plus probably at some point next year I'd guess they will discontinue original model and drop it to $250 to sell the last of them as they drop the OLED model to $300 to replace it. It'll still easily be over 20 million, maybe even close to 25 million still. This year should be another 28-29 million. In 2023 they can probably keep sales real close to 20 million if they want by doing the first real price cut (Lite and OLED to $150 and $250) and doing Nintendo Selects discounting of a lot of games and there will probably be a couple major 15-20 million sellers coming out that year as well as smaller Nintendo IP or delayed games like MP4.
Yeah. I'd imagine 2022 will still be quite a bit above 20 million. Probably will trend down at the rate it went up.
