It should do about as well as last year at this rate. The lead YoY is slipping, but it should stay in the race this year.

Kinda wish Nintendo wasn't being rewarded for releasing so few games though. Lol. Hopefully things start getting turned around as we slowly(maybe very slowly) leave the pandemic behind us.

Interesting that the PS5 is tracking similar to PS4 in 2020 at the same point in time. I wonder how much the PS4 would have sold last year if the sales did not completely collapse in the latter months?

with full stock and no PS5 release, PS4 would reach at least 12M
