THEY BROKE 400k holy cow!



Crazy crazy, no releases for Switch at that.
Should broke 500k-600k+ next week just cause Nintendo will make A LOT of stock available.
Apparently we are looking for 200k+ japan only looking at lotteries. It's crazy to think it is selling that much there, constantly with stocks over 70k a week and they are STILL doing lotteries. And now with 2 Monster Hunter games coming...



Christ! Those Switch Numbers



YanisFromFrance is right. Those numbers are impressive.

You'd think a major release happened for Switch this week but nope, demand is just very high. I wouldn't be surprised if next week doubles this one.



Fantastic sales. Next week we should see Switch above 500k.



Nintendo production increases are starting to hit consumers.



400k+ for Switch! What big game did they release? Oh yeah, it was nothing.

Hotshot Racing released last week.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
