It's the same price as the PS4 on release though. In any case, this shipment has been lasting several days now.

Wat?  This shipment isn't lasting, these are resellers or small time retailers who sat on a paltry numer to sell for $400. But the Switch has been available 100% of the time on Amazon for these markups.  It's sold out on Amazon itself, like the majority of locations of ever major retailer in this country.  That's why it is being marked up by $100 on Amazon.  Son

I see what you mean - the seller is not amazon itself. I suppose a lot of people would consider a $98 markup to be too much even though $398 is a fairly standard price for a new system. I guess Nintendo isn't shipping enough hardware to the US for some reason.

Damn, PS4 is doing pretty good. #16 of the UC4 bundle. #53 for the Pro. And #67 for the Fool's Ed. If this keeps up, I think we are going to see similar numbers to April, but with the Switch falling a bit.

So, ~260K for the Switch. ~220K for the PS4. And ~90K for the XBO.

Well, it has only been out for 2 whole months.  And there's a possibility it could be more Nvidia's fault than Nintendo on the lack of stock.  Still, I expect things to calm down a bit during the upcoming months, as they are usually slow.

Still a far cry from when consoles could be marked up $300+ and still be sold.

280k for Switch

I honestly think the Switch can sell more than last month. Shipments should be higher.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

280k for Switch

Meant for May.  Unless you're just saying that's your prediction for May.

Well those $300 mark ups happened at the launch of machines, not so much months later.  And Holiday launches make it far worse as there's a sort of deadline to acquire the product.  You can't wait for months, Christmas is around the corner.  Launching in March, there are more people willing to wait longer than in the Holidays because of the lack of this deadline.  But the prices have reacyed $450.

And the shipments aren't peculiarly low or anything, demand is just high.  Shipment size is fairly standard, it's just taking time to get the shipments stepped up. 

And yeah, $400 is what the PS4 launched at.  But that's not necessarily the right price.  This does show that they could have maybe priced it at that and gotten decent sales, but more than anything it shows that $300 was more of a sweet spot than people thought.

If we're anything representative of the mainstream market, Nintendo could release 2 prior months worth of consoles in June and sell out immediately.

The successive months, however, should see readily available consoles. Maybe.

Surprising to see the PS4 outselling the Switch on Amazon in the hourly chart.

Start with negative.  Get proven wrong.  Find new negative.

 


That Retron HD came and went from the charts really quickly.
