they would know the sell through up to the date of the 28th of January.

People keep getting irked by how companies are able to achieve such up to date data but they have no idea that hardware vendors and OSVs (OS vendors) are all practically sophisticated enough use telemetry to gain such massive insights on statistics so any time users log in with a Switch system online means that data gets recorded and sent back to Nintendo ... 

Nintendo would most certainly have sales data up to date on a daily basis ...

Again, this is pure assumption on your part. How do you know how long it takes for reliable sales figures to come through? It takes NPD over 2 weeks to come up with reliable figures and that's for ONE country! Knowing how conservative Nintendo is, i would guess their figures are from way before that date. As for your careful scrutiny of rough charts with little info, again i ask, why do you go to so much trouble? You are like a dog with a bone. I really thought you were going to give up with your Switch numbers obsession but i guess not.

it actually takes sony 2 days, and nintendo it took them 2 days to announce 10 million, its not assumption at all, it doesn't take npd long to get data lol, they just release it late. just look at nintendo when they announced 4.8 million in the US, it took them 3 days to release december data.

They specifically said the numbers only included NA, Europe and Japan. They didn't have accurate data for ROTW so it could clearly be over 14m, especially as Nintendo only specified 13m. For all we know it could have been 13.9m at the time stated. They wouldn't announce 14m if they didn't have reliable data from significant regions. Also, how do you know there haven't been shipments since? There likely has been significant ones.

i mean if they only shipped 14.87 million and they sold through 14.5 million like vgchartz suggest by next week, how would nintedo not know? they would have to ship more units to those other known regions and stock would be extremely low, giving a higher estimate for those other regions, but you are free to think what you want, these numbers are not facts, and i actually wanted to stop posting in theses threads till we had something official, but you kept mentioning me so i felt a need to reply.

Fair enough. You are right, we don't know for sure but i will say i get the impression the inventory was/is low, although more are getting manufactured and shipped every week anyway and the production numbers have already been increased.

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

Thats true but there is evidence that suggests they only use end of the week data.

You do realize that Nintendo shipped 14.86 million as of December 31st, right? Do you seriously think that no units were shipped at all during January?

They used NPD figures! The date obviously correlated well with NPD numbers.

according to Nintendo’s internal sales figures.

Most of the time, that means NPD with Nintendo.

of course  i realize this, just saying they would know if they sold through higher then 14 million based on shipments alone, as those unknown smaller regions would ask for another shipment. they do have solid data for there 3 big markets.



Sony still holding it down good job. Very nice for the Switch as well and man these Xb1 numbers make me so sad smh. Good system with some very nice games too.
