No way.

Are these numbers global or only for Japan?

NPD is just USA.

Thanks. I'm going with 333K for the Switch.

You should lower your expectations a bit. Due to the way NPD tracks, January was 5 weeks last year but 4 weeks this year.

Last year it did 270k, that's 54k/week. If it does 333k, that's 83.25k/week, a ~54% weekly increase which seems too high to me.

I'm thinking it will be roughly the same as last year but with one less week of tracking, that's a ~25% increase of the weekly average.

I'm expecting a huge boost the first week from the holidays. In Japan week 1 was up 40% compared to last year. I think it will be even bigger in the US.

Its possible, Smash Bros still going strong and 2D Mario in the middle of the month could really give it the momentum needed but I still think that's a bit too high. We will find out tomorrow though.

Nice, so switch was up on last year with a whole week less to track right?
