Next week probably a big dropoff for the Switch (possibly the other consoles too, depending on how large their stocks are) due to the Coronavirus-induced shortages.

There should be plenty of switch stock to stop that from happening. It will take over a month of manufacturing delays to affect sales outside japan.



Did I already say that Europe is the place to be ?



Switch is already down a bit compared to last week. I think it is already getting affected by the virus. But yeah, it's going to get worse.

In Europe PS4 outsold Xbox 7:1 this week.

Well, looking at Japan, the numbers only hold up due to the lite temporarily filling the gap the lack of base models has left. And I'm sure Japan won't be the only region which is slowly running dry on the base model.

PS4 still beasting in Europe. Will Corona be under control by the time the new consoles hit? Also could this stop Switch momentum from hitting what it could?



I am Iron Man

Switch still above PS4 and Xbone combined in America.

Hopefully as in Japan the extra Lite stock provides a bit of a buffer when the shortages start to bite.



I wonder how much (if any) impact we'll see from Amazon cutting the PS4 Pro price by $100?
