Next weeks nrs will have the MH launch too, and those MH bundled PS4's sales.
So its probably gonna take another 2 weeks of wins as well.

Anyone know the reason why Nintendo can't fixed the Switch supply issue?

They didnt plan ahead, for success.
What happend is it sold better than they thought, and theres a shortage of memory chips & LCD (apple took a large portion).
That was the rumor back in april. Its probably still plagueing nintendo.

Basically apple is fighting Nintendo, for LCDs & memory chips, and makeing iPhone's instead of nintendo makeing Switch's.

The "only" fix is to wait it out, Nintendo are being cheap, and arnt willing to pay more than Apple, to get parts.
So most of the sales go to apple, beacuse their supply chain power is bigger & they order in bigger quantities.

Get your shit together and start shipping 100k/week Nintendo! hahaha

Kinda hard to make Switch's if your missing parts needed to manufacture them with.
Apple is f***ing them, by buying large amounts of the same parts Nintendo needs.

Even if production should be up in 2018, its still probably a issue for them.

Nintendo fans rally, and stop buying Apple :P

I heard something like that a while ago, I thought it would have gotten better by now..... well if they're planning to sell 20million Switches, they better do somethin



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Nintendo should be over the hump, yet still struggles to get systems out.
When are they going to be done with this issue?

Personally I have not seen a splatoon 2 bundle, Odyssey bundle, or the red and blue system in months. I get the occasional grey, basic system only and that is one or two at a time.

Time for a Zelda bundle or something.

This week (so next week in tracking) will hit Monster Hunter. Will PS4 be over 100K?

yeah i think 110.000



These software issues have lasted for almost a month now ... I don't think we'll need to repeat how important it is for them to re-supply their 1st party titles.

Same goes for the hardware.

Moral of the story. Don't fuck with apple. Sony have it figured out. Instead of apple buying up ps4 parts, they are buying up Sony cameras for their phones.
