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.

So supply in your place is also strained or just those bundles and the neon one?

Why? FFXV is around 1.25mil now

 

Edit: maybe around 1.3mil but no more than 1.35mil

You mean in japan only right?

Because worldwide sales as of september 2017, was  over 6.5m units sold through to users.

Hajime Tabata himself said so back then.

 

PS:   In japan only FFXV was at 1m+ sales back in jan 2017 (without counting digital sales for the holidays, or the xbox sales).
         a year has past since then, hopefully its done more than say 200k in that year.

Well that's what I said lol

It first needs to beat Ocarina of Time (1.14m) and A Link to the Past (1.16m) before it beats FFXV.

Japan was the discussion. Shipments was 1mil last year. Its around 1.05mil sold retail add digital and ffxv didnt ship much more and its around 1.3mil roughly. BotW is over 1mil now in japan easily.

 

WW BotW will be over FFXV by years end too.

Will you be making a total switch software WW vs ps4 software prediction too? That's the one that really matters.

Nah to both. Japan unless BotW falls off a cliff itll outsell FF there. WW BotW will be ahead easily.

 

As for your last comment, why does that really matter? Im assuming your talking about switch only BotW excluding WiiU right? If so why would you exclude that



With 49 weeks left, Breath of the Wild (NS-physical) will need to sell an average of 3,577 units per week to reach 1 million by the end of the year.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 would also need to sell an average of 495 units per week to reach 200,000 units.
