Your "less than 2M" prediction for the PlayStation's third-party software sales in 2021 is way too aggressive IMO.

The issue is that compared to last year there would be a lot more Switch titles in the Top 1000, and a lot less on the PS4/PS5. So far the "major" titles on the PS4/PS5 that have a launch date are Village, Nier Replicant, Scarlet Nexus, Lost Judgement, Tails of Arise - combined it doesn't seem that they would be able to surpass 1 million units.

Based on E3, I might bump them up a bit. Since I'm basing the decline on what we know so far.

Yep, if you live in a Media Create / famitsu sales bubble.

Japanese sales are media create / famitsu
Re 8 is appears to be struggling in Japan, which is shame , but the rest of the world doesn't matter when discussing japan's sales much like japan's don't matter in the uk, or the uk in the us and so forth

There will be a lot less PS releases in top 1000 but probably still a few hundreds.
Without putting too much thinking, a decline of 50% of the PS4 third-party sales compared to 2020 + 500K for PS5 third-party sales would fall in the range between 3-4 million units.

it’s relevant because it shipped 3.65M outside Japan hence if you live in a Japanese sales bubble and you want to limit your discussion with it’s Japan sales then yes it is an ouch.

It's the topic you're in smarty.
I find it irrelevant if you only talk about Japan sales and limit the discussion in it because the loss sales in Japan is being compensated by the other markets.

300K in one market is still a large numbers. You can say ouch all you want but you are not looking in the grand scheme of things. Resident Evil 9 will still happen and it will still release in Japan as well so posting concern is rather pointless at this point.

GEO Preorders

good to see the ps5 preorders ahead of ps4 even if it is only 1 source, it was mind boggling to me that the ps5 wasn't pushing software at all but tracking ahead of ps4

also if other realtors follow this trend, will this be the first musou game to open higher on nintendo hardware than sony?

Nop

At this GEO's ranking, the hardware order of multi-titles is the order of hardware release date.
The ranking of titles is based on the total number including other model versions and bonus versions.
