There is big restocks coming in April apparently so let's see if the Switch can keep up moderately until then.

I'm also wondering , after the pandemic, if the demand for that Switch will remain that high or it will go down a bit. I think the pandemic made some people want to play games (mainly AC), but we will have to see if they will pursuit this later when there is more stock.

Source?

Or are we extrapolating that from Foxconn saying their factories would be back to full production by the end of March?



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 i just saw that on twitter and resetera. But still i don't think it will take over a month to have a restock since production in China is quickly recovering.



Seems about right. Now with all the lockdowns it's more important than ever to own a portable console.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Well this is just insane. This was the true meaning of the Switch lite strategy.



The misfortune of some makes another one happy.

Switch Lite is blowing our expectations after the lukewarm reception by the market. Though, I can't wait for the OG model to be back in form !

What makes you think that China is quickly recovering?



So people buying the Switch Lite only because the Switch sold out? Glad Nintendo’s handheld market picking up the slack. They deserve all their success. That said it’s a little funny that a portable console is selling the most during a period we need to stay home.



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

It has been reported multiple times for weeks. Apple said it was doing better end of February
