Americans are starting to get their tax returns which is causing the bump in sales. This happens every year.

This is the main reason for the bump in sales in the US this week as there were no major releases.

Europe is the best region ever. 



Strong sales for early February with no major releases.



Signature goes here!

Switch is still doing amazing, did it hit 20 million units sold for the fiscal year yet? Real possibility it hits 20+ million units 3 years in a row, I don't see the new systems hurting it (if anything I think they will help Switch sales, lol).

People in the US are starting to get their tax returns, which is the cause of the bump in the US. And in Japan it is people rushing to buy a Switch as Nintendo warned of shortages, due to the Coronavirus.

At first I thought it was weird that PS4 is down more YOY than Xbone, but I guess when you're higher you have further to fall.



These numbers must be a bit off, I'm in the UK and I barely see anyone with a switch and most people I know have a ps4, and back home in Portugal, its like at least 20 ps4 for any switch I see, mostly because back home there's never sales on games, switch games are 75 euros, peoples wages are 600 euros, in fact I've never met one person with a switch, besides me, maybe its a much bigger deal in USA.

Xbox sales are just predictions, there's no official numbers at all, for all we know it could be either 40 million or 60 million world wide.
