There's this MonHun bundle, but I don't know when it goes on sale?


 

That is going to fly off the shelves.

And that's exactly why Nintendo wanted to ship everything they had for holiday season and December and pritorites that over January shipments. Sales can be good for January sales or despite its January, you cant say they are nothing Switch sales after 24. (December assuming) are nothing special because you don't know that, we only have Japanese sales with huge stock problems.

its nots switch only, its for every console dude, people waste all there money on gifts, and thats why January is a slow month for consoles. anyway this is not going any where we''ll know soon enough if my theory is correct. everything is digital now so nintendo sees sales in real time, and ship accordingly, we will find out soon enough.

I know that January is always slower month and of course they will much weaker compared to December, and like I wrote: "sales can be good for January sales or despite its January".



Surely shortages indicate higher prior shipments, not lower ones!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

Ps4 not following this logic this January in Japan.

I know that, just pointing out it isn't fact what he's saying. It's not so black and white. 

 

And if switch had stock in January in Japan its numbers would be huge.

that makes 0 sense. vgchartz which i believe is accurate is using mostly official data since it's out shows switch sold through 12.2 million by the end of 2017, you're saying if they shipped 14.5-15  million for 2017 there would shortages after the holiday period, ok...

Yeh, i'd take those numbers with a huge sack of salt. I believe Nintendo was planning to ship 14m before 31/1/17 so as there's shortages then the figure is likely higher, as shortages indicate not much in the channels. I'll wait for Nintendo's report, thank you.
