166k for the Switch doesn't seem like a great number. Think Nintendo is relying way too much on Nov/Dec to make up for everything.

So xbox’s Playbook. But smash and Pokemon should perform very well. But they do need more releases throughout the year.

When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

XBox One is up 33% YoY ... that One X model is doing work it looks like. 

Holidays is going to be massive they managed 6m for Nov+Dec last year, should manage at least 7.5m this year.

However looking at how things are going my prediction of 18m globally in 2018 might be looking a little high now.... With an 8m Nov+Dec they'd still have to average 272k per week for June-October to end the year with 18m...

 



XBox One is starting to find some traction in non-holiday months ... the XBox One X has been a large boost for them, think mid-gen hardware refreshes are basically going to become the norm now.

Even though they probably won't admit it, I think they were banking on Labo being a pretty big hit, just treading water until November arrives can't have been the game plan if they seriously thought 20 million was doable. 



Not a bad month for anyone, in fact pretty good all around.

Any idea of when we will get software sales? Since May did give us some exclusives like Detroit, Donkey Kong, Hyrule Warriors, and State of Decay 2. I'm very curious to see how all of them sold especially State of Decay.

I dunno... I think the Pokemon & Smash are kinda a letdown.
Its not the next normal mainline Pokemon game's, and smash looks like its some sorta Port with a few extra's.

Im not expecting Switch to have a unsually large holidays because of Smash & Pokemon, because of this.

Considering some recent statements made Reggie and Nintendo of France, I don't actually think this was the case. I think they really are betting big on Smash and Pokemon in November and December. 



According to Reset Era page, the best selling software was

1. God Of War
2. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
3. Detroit: Becoming Human
4. Hyrule Warriors

Looks like DKC is really doing well.
