Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu Sales: W37, 2019 (Sep 09 - Sep 15)

Not massive, but a very good bump. The holiday weeks will be telling though.

I'm guessing combined switch sales of both units won't drop below 90k for the rest of the year.



Think for yourself, question authority

Switch Lite: 114k (first 3 days)
Switch Basic: 64k (for the week), vs. 52k for the week before.

Nice sales. Just as I precited, the OG Sitch went up, will live together without hurting each other. Can we get a 200k then?



Meh/okish numbers, still don't know who the Switch Lite is catered to. Without any type of download play like the DS/3DS had, it becomes an expensive proposition to have multiple Switch Lites in the home having to buy multiple copies of popular local multiplayer games, such as Mario Kart.



Great sales

90k is too high for weekly sales. It will drop below that in October, but above 50k, maybe even 60k, should be achievable.

It is cater to parents, how is that not obvious?

I don't see how it could possibly get that low so quickly now. It's becoming apparent that the Lite is not taking away sales from the original Switch, which itself is selling at least 50k weekly since the revised version was released, and the Lite is taylor made for the portable loving Japanese audience.

There isn't much releasing in October in Japan until Luigi's Mansion on Halloween. Salles will drop down during that time, October is pretty slow in Japan.

That being said, they will quickly recover after October again, and should surpass last year's November by a fair margin. The question is if the Lite (and the tail end of Pokemon sales) is enough to counterbalance the lack of anything even close to Smash Ultimate in December.
