Forums - Sales Discussion - I'm a little scared for Nintendo Switch / PS5 / XSX sales

In France, we have closed stores deemed non-essential because of Covid 19, and the shelves in video game stores will close. We will only be able to buy our consoles on Amazon France. I really wanted to see the Nintendo Switch break the sales records (it could have broken the sales record in one year for a console never made) and I would have loved to see the PS5 / XSX launches

Most people shop online anyway. Man if people were as concerned about keeping a social distance and wearing masks as they do gettintg their video games we'd be in good shape all things considered.

so true



There's no reason to be scared on behalf of giant corporations. They have all the money they need and will find ways to sell their products.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

As long as the stock situation is good, sales will be fine. Sales for current-gen systems actually experienced a boost because of the pandemic. People just buy online if they can't go a physical store.

In times like these its good to remember what truly matters... videogame sales!

Unless sales drop drastically and hurt the industry as a whole (which is very unlike), there's nothing to worry about. Besides, pre-orders for PS5 and Xbox Series have been very good thus far, and the Switch still has to meet demand in a number of countries, so even if sales of any of the big three don't meet people's expectations (whatever they are), consoles will still all be fine. =)

Companies already take care of their sales, so let's just worry about keeping our own health in good numbers.



Please, feel free to correct my English.

Isn't a little pathetic to be scared of the commercial performance of a set of machines?

Not if you have stocks on those companies 

Otherwise? Yes



I don't think that we're going to see consoles get stuck in warehouses. Sitting on stock costs money, so they'll just reallocate units to places that can deliver them. Sucks if you preordered at a physical store, but then... why did you do that?
