Around the Network

Great Switch sales which easily beats the comparable week in 2020. PS5 sales are going down yet again, still 2.4 times higher than what PS4 was selling at this point but then again it has yet to catch his predecessor's total launch align sales.

Signature goes here!

Looks like Monster Hunter Rise held pretty darn well. And I guess Switch OG and Lite being neck and neck means we're still having shortages.



Top 10 is all Switch with MK8 returning to 4th some 4 years on from the week it released.



It's April and the Switch is already at 2m sold for the year. Mad!



Around the Network

Without shortages Switch would have sold above 100k easily. The original model seems to be out of stock again.



Nice, even better week for the Switch than I figured it would have, and based on the amounts of Lite's sold you gotta figure it would sold at least 20k more this week if stock of the hybrid wasn't a bit limited.

Switch gonna build up a nice lead over 2020 this week and next week.



Lite model is helping with shortages a bit. They must be losing 10-15K a week on OG shortages (105-110K @70/30 OG/Lite would be maybe the baseline?).

Also buffer over 2020 is almost back up to 100K at retail (My Nintendo Store bundles/limited editions of RFA/ACNH/MH/Mario should mean buffer is already >100K).



Nice for both MHR and Switch
Switch seems to still have shortages, particularly the hybrid model.



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

20 million for the Switch to be reached by early June ?
