Going to double what the Wii U, PS4 and PSVita did in its first 52 weeks! 

At this rate, it might even reach close to the first year sales of Wii U, PS4 and Vita combined

You are way too pessimistic, it'll sell several 100k a week when holiday comes. It'll destroy PS4+Vita+WiiU easily.

 

Anywho, Switch numbers are very cool to see, Nintendo have definitely improved their stock situation, and demand is still keeping up with supply. Good hold from DQXI, and I'm especially surprised by the PS4 version given the installbase. Might even reach 2 million lifetime including digital. Splatoon 2 is also doing amazing. Its attach rate is already ridiculous and climbing, without even factoring digital. Last but not least, the PS4 is also showing very healthy hardware numbers.

Overall, Japan, while it has faltered from its heights, is still a gigantic gaming market.

What does it matter which version sells more? It's square Enix laughing to the bank...

In other news Switch is on fire. The holidays will be a massacre!



Think for yourself, question authority

Switch is definitely 3DS's successor. Otherwise then when 3DS dies out Nintendo's handheld marketshare becomes 0%?

Unless Nintendo reveals another 3DS successor, then Switch it is.

For fanboy wars?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

19./20. [PSV] Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition # (Sony Computer Entertainment) {2015.03.19} (�2.400) - 2.353 / 1.001.385 (+9%)

Vita's first million seller on Famitsu. Congrats vita. Long live the king!

What?! Switch is UP?

Nintendo said they would up production in July and again in August. Didn't expect that much though.



3DS-FC: 4511-1768-7903 (Mii-Name: Mnementh), Nintendo-Network-ID: Mnementh, Switch: SW-7706-3819-9381 (Mnementh)

my greatest games: 2017, 2018

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

Splatoon 2 is turning out great in Japan and I feel like 10 million sales is definitely possible!

I know the Swich can easily do it - but can Nintendo get enough parts in time to ship that number of units? That's why I said might, though I'm confident it will do it, coming up to DS and Wii numbers in their first year

Oh, and if I'm pessimistic, what would Jrnation then be since he only expected double the numbers of Wii U, Vita or PS4?

This week is the final confirmation that Switch production is up. What's worth to note is that we are going to see fluctuations in weekly sales as long as Switch sells through its shipments virtually instantly. Something like 60k (last week), 90k (this week), 65k, 85k, 75k, 85k, 60k, 80k wouldn't be surprising, because weekly shipments aren't going to be consistent. When the DS remained sold out through 2016, the weekly hardware sales also fluctuated with swings of up to 30k units from week to week.

Is production up or are they just allocating Japan a higher percentage of switches that previously would have went to other regions?  NPD data and the availability in europe would suggest this is likely.

NPD data is from July. In Japan only the last two weeks the sales were up. I expected less for Switch in NPD, because I assumed 20% up for two weeks, so overall 10% up. Switch clearly outperformed that. This thread is already august and has another production increase. So we still have to see if NPD will also be up.

I agree on europe though, seemingly demand is (barely) met for some time now.

Another great week for hardware in Japan. Really nice to see the industry so strong over their. There is no doubt about mobile devices being the go to in the region though. The evidence has been solid on that for quite some time.

It would be really nice to see Sony go at the market one more time with a mobile device that actually gets solid support. Seeing how well the 3DS and Switch are selling, their is absolutely no doubt, that a 4G PS4 Phone, would absolutely reshape the landscape in Japan.

I really hope that Kaz can deliver on the One Sony vision. If he can merge their mobile unit into the PlayStation division, Kill Xperia, and Drop Android, they could build a much stronger userbase around their own PlayStation OS. They are barely selling 10 Million Xperia devices world wide. A solidly supported PlayStation 4 Phone could nearly reach those numbers in Japan alone seeing the success of the Switch/3DS, and the massive amount of added value a device with even more support and function would bring.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
