Global hardware estimates (Followed by lifetime sales):
How many retailers do we get actual data from in NA/EU? Because it just seems odd to me that Japan would get a 200% increase in weekly sales while NA/EU get virtually no boost from the new Switch model.
June 29-98k/84k/60k (Mario Maker)
July 20-78k/58k/47k (new sku reveal)
Aug 3-72k/50k/37k (new sku in NA)
Aug 17-70k/48k/45k (new sku in EU)
Aug 31-82k/56k/91k (new sku in JP)
We see a pretty steady baseline of ~70-80k in NA, ~50-60k in EU & ~35-45k in JP with the exception of the Mario Maker boost. Then we get to the new sku release and NA/EU have no noticeable change while JP sees massive growth.
When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.
