Nice to see the ps4 will be joining the 100 million club soon.

NPD says Switch is up year-to-date so does the whole month hardware currently replicates their estimate ?

Honestly, with the new SKU launch, I would expect a bigger grow in the west than it currently has ...

Ya last Aug was ~205k, this site has this Aug at ~265k.

But most of it's grow is coming solely from Japan (this would leave a 25K growth in the west + rest of the world), I'm kinda septic to the idea that the sales of the new SKU had virtually almost no impact in the west when you look at what it did in Japan.

Oh man the lite is going to explode everything... it's going to be insane for the holiday season.

I think that they would easily reach their forecast of 18M even without Lite.

Switch really got Japan in the bag.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Yeah something is weird with Switch's numbers, I don't see why the Mariko revision would give no boost in the West yet cause a 200% surge in Japan.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I don't know if this is true or not, but in my own experience it was kind of not available until very recent. At least for me. I got my Mariko Switch a few days ago. Before that the retailer I went to, was still selling away the old stock before restocking with the Marikos.



Switch is catching up to the Xbox One at a great pace, many individuals are pointing out that Switch might fall behind in support due to the new gen console coming out in 2020, but it's not guaranteed that the next Xbox will be able to outsell the Switch, at least while Switch remains the main platform supported by Nintendo, so its install base will be very appealing in the years to come
