Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Stock will be the biggest factor for all consoles this holiday season.

Switch has another 400k+ week. I would say nothing special came out this week, but Super Mario 35 was released, and I've been playing it all week. I doubt it would affect hardware numbers though. It might affect Nintendo online subscriptions. This is the type of game that is worth getting a subscription for. Anyway, I digress....

Sounds more like facts than digression.



Soon enough, switch will outsell PS4 and never look back. But for now, onwards and upwards to 3ds



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Heh, thanks. 

I hope Nintendo says something about an uptick in subscriptions from Super Mario 35 in their next financial report (assuming this happened).  Technically, the report should only cover the quarter ending Sept 30, but sometimes they include extra information even if it happened after the end date. 



I love how 400k+ is just another week for the Switch nowadays.



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