A little too early on the first and totally wrong on the second.

I hope you're right.

Called it.

That’s most likely my fault, then. I must have mixed up some numbers here and there. My bad.

I've done a bit more updating for all 3 platforms. Main focus was Switch as with the shipment figures we were clearly a bit low.

Yea i think the NPD leak was just wrong and maybe should have waited a bit to do the adjustments lmao. So Switch did get a 20 million year after all.

It NPD leak wasn't wrong. The leak and the shipment figures for the Switch showed we were too low in Europe and mainland Asia.

Wasn't Switch sold-through > Shipment during Q4-Q1? It was heavily discussed Nintendo sold more units than what they had shipped in the same quarter. So basically they had overshipped Nintendo Switch in the last FY Q3 and needed to move out the old stock asap with the new replacement version of Mariko Unit and Switch Lite.

The were lowered in the US after the leak, but that has been offset with some upwards adjustments in Europe and mainland Asia for the holiday period.

Oh got you, so it must have performed pretty well in Europe then. 



Week 4 numbers have been posted. Furthermore, I just posted the adjustments from the NPD and Nintendo's Quarterly Results. The Nintendo Switch in 2019 is now higher than it was originally, up by about 200k. PS4 and Xbox One are around the same level, or just slightly up.
