Why is July always going to trend higher than April/May/June?

well here is the thing it's tending upwards compared to 2017? compared  to april, may, or june, we have no idea, it's a vague comment that really doesn't tell us much.

Seemed pretty obvious they were talking about current momentum as in sales in the weeks after E3 are doing better than sales in the weeks before E3.

You didnt answer the question though, why is July always going to trend higher than April/May/June?



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Software sales are good, hardware sales are a tad disappointing given the 20 million target. They banked too hard on Labo and left the first half too barren of core content.

Momentum is diffidently slowing down for switch, last year if there was stock, would make this years numbers look pathetic. Interesting note Europe combined with ROTW has out shipped the americas for the first time by 30k.

I would agree that momentum has slowed but not significantly. Slow season of the year and on top of that it's only 0.1million down from the same quarter last year. It's pretty much flat.

I could see next quarter being slightly under 3DS which did 3.21 with 3DS XL+NSMB2.

Well last year was heavily supply constrained, you couldn't find a system anywhere. This year you can find a system at every store with fairly ample stock no problem, so for sales to be down is a bit of a let down. 

Software sales are terrific though, shows Switch is definitely an older leaning Nintendo system with more core gamers and you're seeing tremendous legs on things like Zelda.

Well it's summer and consoles sales are much better then april or may which are usually weak months for console sales going by this gen, so the past 4-5 years.

That is true I'll give you that but likewise from Nintendo themselves, Switch hardware sales have been trending upwards since E3 so I think everything could be okay come next Quarters results. Also the lack of 1St party releases has really hurt them this time. You'd think they'd learn a thing or two from Microsoft's mistakes lol.



If they can ship 3 millions for the current quarter and 8 millions during the holiday season, and if we add 3 more millions shippments for Q4, that would make the sales close to 16 millions. But I don't see how they're gonna sell 4 more milions.

VGC has it at 18.26 million sold as of June 30th, so this would mean there's 1.41 in stores or in transit if tracking is on point.
