UPDATE:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you all for participating in this thread. I am a few weeks late on the final update, but I wanted to do it late better than not closing the thread. There have been major adjustments in my personal life which have made it hard for me to add any more work, but I still wanted to thank you all for making this thread fun for me and for all of you.

Hopefully given the fun I've had, I may run another such thread in the future, let me know your opinions in the final poll.

Hey guys, many of you were split on the value of the OLED. Now put your money where your mouth is and predict its sales!

How much do you think the Switch will sell, combined, in the OLED's opening week.

Feel free to break it down Switch, Switch OLED, Switch Lite, but start with the combined sales.

Feel free to offer weekly sales or to post by region

Here are the results so far (thanks to @Zippy6 and @trunkswd for the numbers):
