So the Switch actually managed to sell more than 1 million per week every week ok december. That's huge.

I take it it was briefly at a million+ and quickly adjusted down.

I think he posted before the weekly breakdown was out, so he probably saw the YTD figure going from 15.8M to 17.0M and assumed that Switch sold 1.2M for the week. Then the numbers came out and revealed that 300k of that was from earlier weeks being adjusted up.

This. I did adjustments to previous weeks, then posted December 29 hardware figures.

They are definitely content. It beat their original projections and the revised ones after that. 

Having your second best year in its 5th year, without any price cut, is simply amazing. No console has sold this good, so late a this price. PS4 is the most succesful home console ever...

Yeah unprecedented from the ps4. Only thing I think could replicate that astonishing achievement is the ps5.

Wow @ switch selling over 1.5m last week with those adjustments. Coupled with the 3ds sales that means over 1.75m Nintendo systems made their way into hands in that week alone. 



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

The Switch is just unstoppable. All this with not even a pricedrop or a hardware revision. Think of the sales after those things happen.
