The November NPD results are out and with them come adjustments!

The PS4 and Xbox One remain unchanged, therefore, no adjustments to them.

All three of the main systems have been adjusted down overall AND in the US.

Nintendo Switch:
The hybrid sees its worldwide Black Friday total taken down from a little over 1.7 to just under 1.5 million units. Still good enough for its 3rd best Black Friday total behind 2019 and 2020, so not even the likes of Pokemon BD/SP could get it up over 2020 like it was before adjustments, which is a shame, but that's what happens when you're unable to produce more shipments to catch up with demand after you expected hardware to be down from last year in the first place. Interestingly enough, the adjustments have it so that the Switch actually sold more in Europe than the US during Black Friday. Now we know where more of the shipments are going.
Furthermore, despite the downward adjustments, the Switch remains up YoY in the US over this point last year. (Next week will change that obviously, since that's when we get LAST year's Black Friday - Remember, 2020 was a 53 week year.) This is shaping up to be an interesting month of December for the hybrid.
