I'm not sure if you have seen my edit in that post. But 2008 is an unfair comparison because Wii in those holidays was impossible to find. That's why i used as a more accurate data 2010 numbers, where like i explained to were 2'5M on shelves. The same can be said about DS in 2006. The thing is when you ship more than 8M in Q3.
The fact that Nintendo is conservative about Q4 is another clue that there's stiull a lot of stock left.
Check my edit where I added PS4.
End of 2015 had a 1.8 million difference based on Sony's official PR statement and their quarterly report and they shipped 8.4m that quarters and there was also no notable shortages. Why is 2.05m impossible for Switch?
When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.
