Didn't monster hunter also come out at the same time with the 3ds xl? Or am I mistaken

That was New 3DS/XL. 3DS XL launched with New Super Mario Bros.

Can't wait to see it reach a 500K lead next week :P

Apparently next week could actually be over 200k... in other words it could jump right past 400k and 500k and go straight to 600k! Now that would be a jump!

Looks like it's happening!

At worst it seems like it could be about 595k from the chart from Famitsu:

But I'm confident that it will break the 600k number in terms of lead over the last year. It will be tight, but it looks very possible now



Yup, it broke the barem. Switch is over 600K baby !!

The fated day is finally here. The Nintendo Switch Lite has arrived and the results are immediate and gargantuan with a roughly 364% increase from the week before.
With a little over 239k sold on launch week, the Switch is now up YoY by slightly over 600k units! Now, it should be all 2019 from here to early November.

What do you guys think? Will it beat the 4.8M of the 3DS in 2013?

I think the Switch has a shot now to do so.

It has a shot at it.  I definitely think Switch will do at least 4.5M.  Not sure how far it is going to get above that though.  

I also think that Nintendo is likely to have supply issues during the holidays.  Who knows if there will even be 4.8M available to purchase?  They predicted 18M worldwide for the current fiscal year and they are going to blow right past that.  Nintendo seems like they are underestimating demand for the Switch.

Probably more that they didn't want to risk having to lower the numbers again, as that's poison for their stocks.



My apologies for the delay. I had a LOOOONG day at work today and just now got home. But, I've known about the update for a while since before I left.
Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of An Elusive Age - Definitive Edition (Holy Shit, that's a long title) has finally arrived for the Switch and it has had a great affect on base Switch hardware sales. While the Switch altogether is down from last week, it was a very strong hold from the Switch Lite launch.

In just these pas two weeks, the Switch has nearly doubled its YoY advantage over 2019. October should be quite the big win for 2019. If the combined momentum of the Switch Lite and Dragon Quest is strong enough, it's possible for the Switch to build its lead up to 1 million units before the Pokemon arrives. Time will tell.
