I know that January is always slower month and of course they will much weaker compared to December, and like I wrote: "sales can be good for January sales or despite its January".

Ps4 not following this logic this January in Japan. 

PS4 sales this January will be exception because it getting one of biggest Japanese IPs in January.

Holidays were weak for it and jan has MH. Makes sense for ps4 atm

I know that, just pointing out it isn't fact what he's saying. It's not so black and white. 

And if switch had stock in January in Japan its numbers would be huge. 

Fact is that in almost all cases December is stronger than January, few exceptions are possible but that really dont change hole picture.

Offcourse that numbers would be bigger without stock problems, but that goes also for December, so December would be stronger than January in any case for Switch, and I actually wrote that sales in January can be good for January sales or despite its January.

that makes 0 sense. vgchartz which i believe is accurate is using mostly official data since it's out shows switch sold through 12.2 million by the end of 2017, you're saying if they shipped 14.5-15  million for 2017 there would shortages after the holiday period, ok...

Yeh, i'd take those numbers with a huge sack of salt. I believe Nintendo was planning to ship 14m before 31/1/17 so as there's shortages then the figure is likely higher, as shortages indicate not much in the channels. I'll wait for Nintendo's report, thank you. 

i usually wouldn't source vgchartz but they are backed by npd, media create, and nintendo figures this time. we already know thanks to the recent announcements north america is much stronger then europe and rest of world for switch, and switch sold 1.5 million in NPD, you have subtract 14 days of strong holiday sales because npd tracks december npd through november 26, that leaves only 15 more days of holiday sales for switch its safe to say its sold 800-900k after the 10 million announcement. anyway you ca discuss the numbers here if you like http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=234418&page=6.

The numbers here have already been adjusted up over 200k for 30/12 due to a mistake. I doubt they are massively off, i just expect them to be adjusted up in the more difficult to track regions after Nintendo's end of quarter announcement. Incidentally, Nintendo hasn't made any announcements since the 12th? I think and that was before the biggest 12 days of shopping worldwide. They also rather vaguely announced the figures as "over 10m"  and didn't give a date for the attaining of those figures. So as i said, i will wait for Nintendo's "Official" figures at the end of this month.

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

yea they gave a date https://www.nintendo.co.jp/corporate/release/en/2017/171212.html, the whole month of december is pretty huge, and cyber monday is huge as well in november which was tracked by december npd. infact cyber monday 2017 was the best sale day in history for amazon.

Not that I'm rooting for MH more than DQ, but it's nice to see it off to a great start.

Well, you can't say i didn't tell you. Never count out Nintendo! A" little" over your 13.5m projection, methinks.
