I'm expecting a boost for Nintendo as Pokemon Legends: Arceus rolls up. Still, if they can maintain a 10% decline YoY that would be pretty phenomenal for 2022.
Over 40% increases for both Xbox and PS, hopefully this is good news for future availability, but I'm not convinced quite yet.
It's pretty hard to evaluate the Switch. 2021 was up from 2020 for a lot of last year and 2019 ended at 20 millions but is at almost half of what Switch did last week. I think overall weeks will be lower than last year but will get more boosts from significant release. Feels like -10% is achievable for this year.
