That's such a good news tbh, yes it didn't get to 200k but the fact the regular Switch got a... boost ? That looks incredibly promising for the holiday season.



Oooh ! Now that's what I call positive diversification. Doesn't seem like the Lite will cannibalize the normal SKU since they don't appeal to the same crowd directly ... at least first glance.

Hardware looks solid. Hopefully software gets a nice boost out of it.

This and next week are going to be interesting (Lite Launch, Zelda, DQ) then we enter a slow period until the end of October and then we get LM3 and Pokemon, although Luigi won't do that much in Japan, all eyes are pretty much on Pokemon.

Edit: Citi expected 300k and now the Nintendo stock is dropping. "Experts"

I think that Spawn wave is responsible with his bullshit alarming video about the pretended same design of the stick.



Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
Fastest TI MASTER in Europe : rank Master V in 5min10
Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

LET'S FACE THIS FACT : The Switch is the last physical video game system of the history who has a chance to beat PS2's sales.

lol what. No. Do you really think an american YouTuber with what, 400k subscribers is affecting sales of NS Lite in Japan? That's absurd. Even if you live in western countries who speak english, I doubt that the average consumer who is going to buy a Switch even know who Spawn Wave is.

And besides... Do you have any proof that what he's saying is bullshit? Are the sticks really different?

I am just saying that it is nearly impossible to know from just opening a Switch Lite and watching closely the parts.

No Spawn wave has not scared the buyers, but maybe a good bunch of investors.

Ah sorry...With a picture it will be easier to explain :

Sure it will, the last one did over 1 million in Japan alone.

I see it in the context that it's YoY competition is Smash Ultimate and Mario Odyssey. And I don't think it will surpass either. :D

It's because that game is next year with AC.
