This will be the last week we track 3DS sales outside of Japan and the last week we track Xbox One in Japan.

Are you gonna continue with 3DS in Japan until Famitsu stop tracking them?

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.

I expect sales for 2021 to be on par or just below 2020 sales. I do expect sales to start dropping in 2022, but nothing too crazy.

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.

Greenfox trunkswd (on 14 July 2021)

I expect NS to sell more in 2021 than in 2020, close to 30 per year.It depends on the strength of the OLED version, but I think it could triumph by Christmas.

On the other hand I completely agree that in 2022 it will start a slow decline.

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.

10% up in its fifth year? It's a Switchsunami!!

The switch is simply killing it!!!

Greenfox Majora (on 14 July 2021)

Honestly, it is incredible. If it keeps up the same pace, it will surpass Wii long before Christmas. I wouldn't dare to predict where it will be at the end of the year, especially with OLED in the way.

But we've been told the Switch was down the hill from now on

not from now, 2022, don't turn the things in the way you want.

I do see Switch sales being down in 2022 compared to 2020 and 2021, but should remain above 20m.

Only time will tell :).

Yes time will tell us how well Switch can keep selling or if it reaches the cliff.

UnderwaterFunktown yo33331 (on 14 July 2021)

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.

  • +3

yes, if they do so, then I can see the decline to be steeper and smaller overall.

  • 0
icykai yo33331 (on 15 July 2021)

The surprising thing is, even with a decline starting from next year, the switch can still sell in DS and PS2 range. Around 145m~160m

  • +2

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.
