When your sales are much higher to begin with there's more room to fall. I certainly wouldn't call 52k in a week "decent", especially when your competitors are well over 200k.

Did I really need to add an percentage-wise?

PS4 is down almost 30% YoY, but the XBO only somewhat over 5%. That's a pretty good hold, and thus comparatively rather decent sales.

They were selling xbox hardware at a huge loss.

In this case, it's not fair unless you also consider how profitable Sony and MS are in the game business.

Was NS adjusted up or down or both in different times?

Covid is doing wonders for the Switch. I know that in the parents chat groups everyone is trying to buy Switches while lockdown is in place for their kids.

Sony want to make money by selling art, Nintendo want to make money by selling fun, Microsoft want to make money.

I'm waiting on Famitsu figures before doing the week ending May 2 hardware figures. If they release two weeks figures at the same time, I'll post the next two weeks of hardware estimates back to back.

As for Switch adjustments. I previously only did adjustments to make sure our figures matched Nintendo's sell-through in Japan, Europe and North America. Last night I adjusted figures in the rest of the world up a bit.
