Now a question rises, will the launch of the new consoles actually help the Switch have a better week than we might think ...
I'm not sure yet. The focus for this week's sales are the new consoles. From what I am seeing the Xbox Series X and S will have sold a decent amount over 1.2 million units on launch day.
It's also weird to think the sales of both next gen consoles will also plummet for a while due to deficient stocks,lol.
Both of them will be sold out through the holidays and likely through early 2021. After the initial demand starts to decrease both consoles will need continued game releases.
And that could help the Switch, being picked up by parents that couldn't find a PS5 or XsX|S.
But still, 500K this week is insane. Imagine what it could do during Black Friday.
It will be hard to find any consoles this holiday season. Switch demand is through the roof, the PS5 and Xbox Series Xand S being brand new will have limited stock, and the PS4 and Xbox One are on their way out.
