Prediction for next week (04/22);

PS4: 200-210k
Switch: 150-170k
XOne: 85-90k
3DS: 60-65k

 I'd be surprised to see the switch slouch that much the week before MK8D.



Well, this is new.

If I remember correctly stock was quite low the week before MK8D, compared to previous weeks. I hope I'm wrong, though.



Another thing to take note of is that the switch is selling significantly worse in Japan than it is in the United States. For all of us who thought Japan would eat the switch up, there is definitely some rethinking to do as to how much.

I keep forgetting about the stock issues! Great point.

This seems like a good place to put it, but EA just revealed that there will be switches at their conference to show off FIFA. That could potential he be a pretty big deal. If that is indicative of some sort of marketing deal for the game, that would be a very big boon for Nintendo in terms of increasing popularity in Europe, and changing their brand perception. Nintendo and EA can very easily make the switch the home for FIFA, and therefore actually help them compete against the PS4 there, which they clearly need help doing.

On the other hand, they seperated FIFA 18 and FIFA Switch on the PR. If the Switch gets a last gen version or misses content, I hope EA doesn't go complaining about the power of the Switch or how little games they sell on it.

Hopefully there are huge lines for the Switch FIFA booth and they see the potential.



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.

Hmm, the Switch seems to still be selling fairly well, I hope that means that it won't be too hard to find stock when I try to get one.

It's sold out in all the retailers near me. I think the best moment to buy it is any time before Spla2n, unless Arms proves to be a huge hit.

1.1 million gap from PS4 doubling the Xbox One.



...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

As far as I know the Switch is the most supply constrained in Japan, so it's not too worrisome.

I disagree, Nintendo is a console generation behind in technology and has next to no online infrastructure..... not even any compatibility with bluetooth Mics or mics for chatting in game or cross game..... why would people buy a switch for FIFA, because it's going to give u the PS3 game on the go?

Maybe they're waiting for monster hunter and pokemon? Most of the switches is library are games that usually do better in the west if I'm not mistaken.
