Great numbers for Switch, i think the overall demand will keep it up atleast through summer

The amount of stock for the Switch is starting to dwindle. Sales could drop for the current week sales if it isn't restocked. The standard Switch is practically sold out around the world. If it wasn't for the Switch Lite, sales would be a lot lower. Demand for the console is really high.

Switch is around 8m off the NES now.



Switch sales might drop by a lot this week (week ending April 11) as stock is getting really low around the world. We already saw shortages last week with the standard model. Switch Lite stock is getting rather low as well. Nintendo needs to get more stock out there.

Classic Switch still sold grew last week in Japan compared to the week before that. But now they are stopping the shipments in japan so we will definitely have a cliff but so they can return to big numbers afterwards



Switch is still doing great, but I know supplies are strained. We're about to find out just how many Switches have been shipped, because we are asymptotically heading toward shipped=sold.



Switch in Japan alone is almost equal with the next best selling system's global total, and that's despite stock shortages.

AC is an absolute monster, a true killer app.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Switch keeps on selling...until supply runs out. Sounds like this week supply is getting real low.
