So for the final week and end of year we should expect:

A bit under 26 million for the Switch
A bit over 13 million for the PS5
A bit under 9 million for the X|S

For lifetime totals of:
Around 103 million for the Switch
Just under 18 million for the PS5
Just under 12 million for X|S

This seems like a solid showing for all consoles. I guess I’ll just post my 2022 predictions here

Switch: 22 million 2022, 125 million LTD
PS5: 18 million 2022, 36 million LTD
X|S: 12 million 2022, 24 million LTD
