Switch numbers are incredible, just like Luigi's game is by the way.
However, i wonder if it's that good in the (very) long run. I am not talking about nintendoom or falling of the cliff here, i don't want to be misunderstood, but when i take into account the followings facts :
-Nintendo best market, especially for handheld consoles ;
- recent hardware revision
-boost only for the lite with a special pokemon edition ;
-luigi's new game this week ;
i'm a little afraid one year of two after the release of pokemon of what the sales can be for the swith. Maybe in 6 months i can see there's no worry to have, when we will have analysed the effects of pokemon and christmas on the market, and the few monthes of sales after this.

There is nothing to worry about, by this point in time 3DS was already starting to fade while Switch seems to be hitting its stride.

3DS

2011-4282k

2012-5497k (+28.4%)

2013-4882k (-11.2%)

2014-3176k (-35.0%)

2015-2347k (-26.1%)

Switch

2017-3312k

2018-3534k (+6.7%)

2019-~4500k (+27.3%)

3DS having a price cut in year 1 and revision in year 2 while Switch didnt get those until year 3 is why they are having different trajectories.

Switch could very well start to decline in year 4 but it should be a much smaller drop than 3DS had and it should start gaining ground from this point onward.

On Era they discussed that none of the trackers have access to Nintendo's online store (which obviously Nintendo does).

That would explain the difference in sales numbers. Thank you.

This week should be a bottom 5 week for the PS4, right?

Yes, thanks!! Corrected the chart in the op. It is the fourth best selling week for SW and the fourth worst selling week for PS4. What a world!! Starting for week 41 it's been in the bottom 5, will week 45 'make it'?

Oh i'm not that worried, it's just in the long (middle) run i wonder if the sales will continue to be so bright with the datas we have. What concerns me more as a gamer is if the can hold a good pace of exlusive games releases. I mainly play on PS4 but i do play a lot more lattely on switch with the exclusives avalaible, and it's great since i'm not that fond of handheld systems, which proves that this console is very well banlanced.



PS4 solo, so very low despite P5R release. Really looks like that at least in Japan, the PS5 can't come early enough anymore.



Ring Fit Adventure

I want to buy it.

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile

http://www.vgchartz.com/article/441216/switch-sales-top-10-million-in-japan/

200k sold on 2 days confirmed.

Still, impressive for Switch to hit 10m

My guess is now a 20-22m LTD.

Edit: woops, believe for a moment that the week ended on Nov 1st. Fail.

Since Nintendo themselves announced 10 million I'll be adjusting our Switch figures up to be just a hair over 10 million when I do the next weekly hardware figures.
