Switch Asia numbers just insane.



Heh, PS4 still slightly above Switch in Europe. Meanwhile in Asia Switch is outselling PS4 by about 10 to 1. I think even in Western Europe Switch is outselling PS4, but in Eastern Europe a lot of people are discovering Playstation for the first time.



Nintendo must be getting tired because they’ve been running over the charts ALL YEAR!!!!!



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Switch has still DS like numbers. Pretty sure it will hit 25M this year.

That's 7 straight weeks over 300,000 for the Switch if I'm not mistaken. Impressive.

No its not working that way. 

Im not from Eastern Europe, but i worked for sometime "there" (for gaming marketing industry) and you should just stop thinking that Eastern Europe is a "wild" place. PlayStation brand was present in Eastern Europe back in the 90s with the first PS.

If he's american, I'm not really surprised by the way he pictures Eastern Europe.

Nintendo has yet minor penetration in easter Europe, the middle east, and Asia. This count. Nintendo is really strong in the Americas, Japan, France, Germany and Australia



Well it can't keep increasing forever, perhaps it is just a single week because of supply constraints.
