Is switch slowing down, or only my perception?
20 million this year still seems not easy to reach
Only your perception. They already sold 7 millions this year in 8 months with only a few system-seller (Octopath, maybe Donkey Kong and Mario Tennis, not sure about Labo or Kirby) and they still have 3 big 1st party titles (Super Mario Party, Pokémon & Super Smash Bros.) for the holidays, not mentioning third party titles (Dragon Ball FighterZ, Dark Souls, Diablo III, World of Final Fantasy, and maybe Spyro). So they can definitly sell 7 or 8 more millions by the end of the year, and even 1 or 2 millions more in january with the release of New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe, and the usual 1 million per month in february and march.
I meant, compared to the recent past. 1 month before it seemed to be in aabetter shape...
Remember they sold poorly on Q1, they need more 18 million to get to 20 million through Q2, Q3 and Q4.
A plausible spread would be 4 million in Q2, 10 million on Q3 and 4 million on Q4.
Yeah, no doubt they can make 7 million on Q3 and 3 million on Q4, but would still let switch far behind the mark. A poor September wouldn't help either.
