And that's exactly why Nintendo wanted to ship everything they had for holiday season and December and pritorites that over January shipments. Sales can be good for January sales or despite its January, you cant say they are nothing Switch sales after 24. (December assuming) are nothing special because you don't know that, we only have Japanese sales with huge stock problems.
its nots switch only, its for every console dude, people waste all there money on gifts, and thats why January is a slow month for consoles. anyway this is not going any where we''ll know soon enough if my theory is correct. everything is digital now so nintendo sees sales in real time, and ship accordingly, we will find out soon enough.
