Well, that's Nintendomination.

Let's just hope Nintendo doesn't run out of stock before the new models hit the shelves.



Around the Network

With both the Lite and a new main model with extended battery life coming, the current model will probably quickly loose it's draw. Just hope Nintendo didn't kill it's Obon week sales with this...



And yet people think Nintendo is going to release a Switch 2 in a couple of years....



Nintendo has begun it's domination of Japan. Is there any doubt that at least 90% of Japanese games are coming to Switch over the next few years? It's going to be their sole dominant platform.



MM2 holding so well, wish we had worldwide numbers

What meaning does your sentence have ? This is only a material upgrade, not a new model.

And a minor one actually, who cares actually to play 7 hours or 4 hours...Is electricity a rare thing in North America ?



Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
WR on TGM alternative mode : Fastest ITEM S9 rank ( <-- Just got massacred by the 2nd most powerfull player in the world )
Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

In other threads people are predicting a whole new "Switch 2" in 2021.  Based on sales, I don't see it.



Switch continues killin' it with sales above 50k . Also, DAT software domination.

MM2 holding greatly, as expected.

Yokai-watch 4 is actually holding pretty well.

There is a huge amount of doubt until Japanese gamers show that they are willing to buy full price retail Switch games from publishers other than Nintendo.

20k for God Eater 3 is pathetic even for it being a late port. YW4 sales were miserable. Other than Minecraft which sells on pretty much everything there has yet to be any major standout third party title on the Switch, so why would third party publishers want to focus on the Switch if the audience isn't buying their games in even slightly impressive quantities?
