I was very sceptical about this. But after the announcement of Switch Sports I also think Switch will be the best selling console ever.

No, I meant the people who downvoted you and him. He was at -3 and you were at -5. Not anymore though.

Wow, I didn't see it. Thanks for reporting it.

I don't understand people who downvote an opinion without toxicity or malice, just because they don't agree.... I don't conceive the dislike like this.

That game it's going to be the new evergreen for Nintendo. If they do a big marketing for the game, it will surely pass the 20 million sales

Yeah. I even think it will surpass 30M without any problems.

I think, even though it's a very "casual" game, we were all particularly pleased when it was announced. This game will revitalize NS sales like no other...

What happened to the sales graph on main Site? Its frozen since few weeks...

The page the graph takes its data from (https://vgchartz.com/analysis/platform_totals/) requires a recoding as whenever we adjust our figures down it doesn't that take into account. So the graph numbers are off and it can take several weeks of data for those numbers to be correct.

Our part time coders are too busy with their full time jobs to work on a fix right now.

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

The Target drop in the beginning of January was far bigger than we estimated. So far there has been very little PS5 and Series X shipments in the US in the first week of February from what we saw. Series S remain readily available.
