Honest question is 800,000 in November a bad number or are people hyperboling because switch has been winning the last couple of months.
I might be late, but most people think below 1 million is bad for November these days (which the PS4 did in it's first November, and I believe the 3DS never had over 1 million in November). The PS4 and XBO gen started to have really high holidays, starting from November. PS3 and X360 had much, much bigger December than November, but that was changing over time (November numbers getting closer to December, or more specifically, Black Friday becoming a bigger deal).
So, the Switch selling less than 1 million is arbitrarily (is that a word?) bad. It sold on par to the 3DS' first November, which had a price cut, 3D Mario and a new Mario Kart. Of course, most expectations were that Switch was gonna outsell PS4 and XBO because it did so the months prior, and we didn't see the effect of Odyssey on the 2 days it got tracked on October.
So what I'm trying to say is it did fine. It sold on par with the 3DS and PS4's first November, and not too far behind the Wii's.
Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.
