Regular Switch has been supply constrained, however, the Switch Lite had plenty of stock. I wouldn't be surprised if many of the people who wanted to buy a regular Switch had to buy a Switch Lite instead.

I think it's safe to say that if both models were plenty supplied and no global epidemic was going on we could have seen a higher number.

It is possible, however, some people who bought game at launch might have waited to buy it, but with being stuck at home they decided to buy it day one.

How is that possible? is the differnce really that big? that seems borerline insane to me.



AC and Pokemon should lead to a hefty FY report although that was delayed due to CV.

Japan saw the biggest jump in sales. Famitsu had Switch sales jumping to nearly 400,000 units.
