Here are the median predictions for July (min <> max):

[NSW] Live A Live (3 days) - 68.938 (42.000 <> 100.000)
[NSW+PS4] Digimon Survive (4 days) - 45.617 (27.000 <> 74.000)
[NSW] Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (3 days) - 149.888 (95.000 <> 250.000)
[NSW] Monster Hunter Rise + Sunbreak Set (28 days) - 75.500 (29.999 <> 270.000)
[NSW] Nintendo Switch hardware (4 weeks) - 252.055 (213.500 <> 311.000)

The most bull-ish predictor of the month is @YuriCastro, expecting no less than 833.030 units sold across all predictions.
The most bear-ish predictor of the month is @kamaitachi, expecting only 526.000 units sold across all predictions.

@mjw's predictions are closest to the median (in terms of %).
@YuriCastro's predictions are farthest away from the median.

Live A Live

The Install Base consensus was very close on this, less than 2.500 units off the mark. The numbers of data points we got regarding Asano games in recent memory probably helped to fine tune the expectations.

Congrats to @MysticGon with their excellent 72.000 prediction, closely followed by @YuriCastro at #2 and @mjw / @Yeshua both tied at #3. All of them were below 2% of error margin ! (+ @PillFencer at #5).

Digimon Survive

The Install Base consensus was a fair bit too high on this, arounf 9.500 units off the mark. The game's performance on PS4 was probably softer than expected, given the recent history of the franchise in the ecosystem.

Congrats to @Multiverse and @Nocturnal both tied at #1 with their 35.000 prediction, they were closely followed by @VengefulMagus at #3. All of them were below 5% of error margin !

Xenoblade Chronicles 3

The Install Base consensus was too high for Xenoblade, more than 35.000 units off the mark. The good preorders trend on Comg couple with the very unusual conditions surrounding the release (no CE tracked, digital being so attractive) misled people. It is also possible that the retail launch was even below Nintendo/retailers expectations given the sell-through and what we mentionned.

Congrats to @brutaka3 with their excellent 110.000 prediction, closely followed by @MysticGon at #2 and @Chris1964 a bit farther away at #3. All of them were below 10% of error margin ! (with the first two under 5%).

Monster Hunter Sunbreak Set (2nd month)

The Install Base consensus was too low for Sunbreak, more than 35.000 units off the mark. The underwhelming launch at retail last month didn't give much confidence about the game's second month. However the legs were excellent and it already doubled its launch sales.

Congrats to @Abzeronow with their excellent 110.000 prediction, followed by @Rellik at #2 and @Kenka at #3. All of them were below 10% of error margin ! (with the first two under 5%).

Nintendo Switch Hardware monthly sales

unknown.png


The Install Base consensus was a bit too conservative for the Switch, around 20.000 units off the mark. The good health of the platform coupled with a strong new release allowed it to reach high levels of sales, even in its 6th Summer.

Congrats to @mjw and @Malden with their excellent 270.000 prediction, merely 1 unit away there is @Ystad who rounds up the podium. The error margin on this one was 0,2% (!) for all of them.

Congrats to the top predictors ! @Multiverse at #1, @Chris1964 at #2 and @Ryng™ at #3 !! It was a tough month with some underperformers and overperforms so congrats.

For the others, there is still the opportunity to do better (or worse) with August ;)
