I was going to ask, any reason in particular why you thought Week 50 the Switch sales would hold flat? @zorg1000

Deeper in the holiday season typically makes week 50 as big or bigger than week 49 even when week 49 has a big release. Prime example is 3DS in 2011.

Week 49-350k (Monster Hunter)

Week 50-367k

With that said, holding flat is my optimistic prediction and I would not be surprised at all to see it drop next week.

I don't think anything worth mentioning released in week 49 last year so we should be able to see what kind of boost Smash brought to the Switch by comparing next week's number to last year's.

I told you so 😋 Family has a Switch number of around 280K and when Media Create comes out later today it should be closer to 300K.

I think you quoted the wrong person. I never doubted Smash would sell consoles.



Signature goes here!
