Who are these crazy people still buying a Switch when they knew a better version is coming? It's not significantly better but may as well wait a few weeks for more battery life at this point.

People who dont know about it, I dont think Nintendo has done much in the way of advertising the better battery model.

Sony is like..... "god bless (europe)" :P

And nintendo Is like Japan hold my beer.

Switch's lead in Japan isn't that much bigger than it's lead in North America, and Japan accounts for less than 1/5 of total Switch sales this week.

EDIT: 29,000th post!

People who don't know about it. That's pretty clear when you look at the new model on Amazon. It was on stock 2 days ago and now you'll have to wait 2-4 weeks since it's shipment is totally sold out. Which means that all those who knew about it and wanted to buy a Switch were waiting... and some now probably still are since it's seemingly selling like hotcakes.



There's still someone here who trust VGChartz figures ? All the effort they do is very well appreciated, sure, but the numbers have nothing to do with reality.

People that dont know, theres a revision that has like 80%+ better battery life, and 5-10% performance (due to chip+new ram).
Theres no upside to buying the old version at the same price as the newer one, so it has to be their just un-informed.

Saying they have nothing to do with reality, when the people who do the numbers adjust them based on shipments and financial reports, is very disingenuous. Fair enough to say they aren’t exact figures (though there is no other site out there attempting to do what VGC does), but don’t exaggerate the situation.



                                                                                                                                            

The vita is 8 years old and has pretty much no more support at that stage.

You know your console is dead when an Xbox outsells you in Japan. 😂😂😂😂



Don't give EA any ideas. 😂😂



I do not think the lite version will have a major impact on sales after it's first launch week. I will wait on buying one personally as I don't feel confident about the quality of the analog sticks. I have the OG and I have already replaced the Joycon two times so I will wait for a youtuber to open the console

Regardless, Sony is making so much profit on hardware sales at the moment and with the  psvr market and accessories hitting new strides, I just don't see why they would lower the price anytime soon.
