Sorry for the late update. Here you go:

At this point 3ds is only a few weeks away before entering beast mode. I wonder if the Switch can catch up. Goddamn Nintendo, do you ever manage your stock correctly?

Well, they did manage to annually ship about 50 million units of DS+Wii for a few years.

interesting scenario that it's tied at the moment roughly with the 3DS considering the massive under inventory versus demand situation they're dealing with; 3DS will fly ahead later this year though (in the week to week comparison) at the point where it got the price reduction

 

Nintendo really needs to get more Switches out. Even if it means not profiting on selling the systems by paying the manufacturers more for the development of the systems (due to the scarcity in parts / competition)

 

one would think if supply was openly available Japan sales would be insane at the moment considering hundreds of people will line up to wait in raffles, which is something very special.

Will be interesting to see if Nintendo can do something about stock to battle the 3DS spike comparison (price reduction it had). 



OP can just add the 3DS and WII U numbers asynchronously with the Switch since we already know them. Don't have to update 3DS/WII U numbers together with the Switch in alignment ...

It'll be interesting to see how the next few weeks will play out ...

it all depends on how well the additional production will go since its about the time for it to start kicking in.

honestly I won't be surprized if they are actually holding back stock for early-mid july to have MASSIVE stock for splatoon realese day. like 500k stock, rerouting the supply that usually would go to europe.

Yeah, Nintendo is very Japan focused and Europe is not their biggest market so that wouldn't surprise me at all.

Muchas gracias, Uran. Seems the stocks are slowly increasing in Japan.



Week one before the final splatting!

Switch should surpass the 3DS in the following weeks, and then the 3DS strikes back - hard!
