Benji made a few posts about it on Era:

It sounds likely Switch was already over 1m by end of Cyber Monday and the 8.2m LTD isn't accurate. With 5 more days to track after that I think somewhere in the region of 1.2-1.5m Switch sales for November NPD is what we are looking at.

Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday: It became the best-selling Nintendo console in U.S. history for that five-day period.


 people really need to see the PR spin here, it's comparing those days only, so comparing to wii makes no sense. wii could have  sold 500k  Wednesday and 300k Thursday, and probably completely sold out the other days.   

This is what i'm trying to tell people, i have nothing against Switch, but that comparison is some PR bullshit of the worst quality because they know people know the numbers from the Wii at BF week 2008 being around 800k, but we don't know shit about what Wii did during next days after BF or even if they have stock left after such a success at BF the days before. We don't know and that's the problem, that Nintendo know that we won't know. And you have 2 options, keep knowing nothing, or believe the numbers could be similar to that 800k figure from 10 years ago in a different set of days....
