First week the Switch is down YoY (if I'm not mistaken) but it wouldn't be without the shortages.

Most of the drop for Switch this week was in Japan. All consoles have dropped in sales this week and are down by the most they have been year-over-year. PS4 and Xbox One are down nearly 40% compared to last year, which is where I expect them to roughly stay for the rest of the year.

The Switch was already down yoy in January npd. They confirmed it was down in revenue and units that month.

PS4 is getting really close to Switch, and that console is over 6 year old.



Shortages have started to hit Japan due to the coronavirus. If it keeps up shortages will start happening in the rest of the world.

I just don't understand why Japanese players wouldn't buy Switch Lite if hybrid Switch is facing shortages.

It's not like they play at home on the TV for the most part (probably 80% of them).
