Switch Lite to the rescue; hopefully Nintendo are getting their butts moving with gearing up production outside China as much and as fast as possible.

I hope this corona virus thing passes over soon, regardless of switch sales. So much unnecessary suffering.



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

I think parts/components may be a problem in addition to production.



Switch shortages are materializing two weeks earlier than I anticipated, but the overall number remains healthy because of a jump in Lite sales. Still, that supply won't last long either, so a sharp dip in sales should come rather sooner than later. For now, Switch is up almost 200k YTD and the crucial question is if the supply chain is good to go once Animal Crossing releases. That will determine whether hardware sales occur on time or are delayed until a later date.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Ugh, 2017 all over again...

Look on the bright side. Now you know that there's a precedent and it had no negative long term consequences.

Switch -22

PS4 - 8



Hopefully we don't see a major drop soon.



28. [PS4] Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV (Koei Tecmo, 01/17/20) – 1,776 (33,644)

Another week of strong legs, unfortunately this may be the end of ROTKXIV in the top 30, as it will probably drop out of the top 30 next week. I can assume that the legs will remain decently strong. Only 8 more days until I unlock the English version.



Switch Lite saves the day by becoming desirable in time of crisis !
Also a great way to sell the surplus of stock they had with the little brother !

I fear AC launch will ransack the shops at this rate lol.
