I'm sure switch will hit 160 million
What happened to the sales graph on main Site? Its frozen since few weeks...
Might be several months before clear production patterns start to emerge, but given that PS5 outsold both Xbox and switch in the January NPD to everyone’s surprise, I wonder if there is an under tracking for PlayStation in North America or if that was a one off error based on PS5 having higher than expected supply in the beginning weeks of January
I can’t speak for everyone else, but my predictions have been off in several different directions over the last 2 months
