That leaves us with a gap of 1.38 million units between shipped and sold. Not sure how much the OLED model factors into that. But my gut tells me the Switch is just slightly overtracked.
Your gut tells you that a widely available console having 1.4 million of available stocks accross the world is too much ?
There are layers to this.
If it were a system like the Xbox Series, Xbox One, or 3DS that was readily available, but on average, nowhere near the levels of the Switch, PS4, or PS5 in terms of global demand, then 1.4 million is a very good number and maybe even a little under-tracked.
But for something like the Switch, which is still selling at a very high level despite slowing down this year, the amount of consoles Nintendo needs to manufacture and ship out to meet demand is much higher than it was for something like the 3DS. And for a system that had a brand new SKU launching a week after these numbers came in, expectations MUCH higher.
If the Switch was nowhere to be found and prices online were selling for higher than the MSRP, like they were last year. Then I'd believe it. But here? Even with the OLED taken into account, I still think that's too low.
