insane Switch numbers! Almost 100k for the week just because Nintendo shipped more. 14 million! Might hit 17 million this year! AC, RF, Clubhouse Games all killing it. AC 5 mil and MK8 3 mil. Big milestones this week. Not much more to say than just "wow"!

I expected less stock for this week, but meh... it's a guessing game. Next week should be lower than this one though.

The 2019 YTD continues to be off by 18 units in my table. I am still not sure why Famitsu did something to their old numbers and I can't be bothered to look up everything again because of such a small discrepancy.

On ERA Chris1964 commented the following:

Lotteries will continue at least until the end of summer.

There's another big unaccounted shipment for the quarter that was sent to retailers yesterday and whatever My Nintendo Store has provided, hardware for Japan could be close to 1,1m.

A few other comments on different retailers and lotteries for the current week (27).  Suggests that shortages should continue throughout the summer BUT week 27 will include a shipment to close out calendar month of June and seems like supply will be higher in W27 vs. W26 as a result.  So I think we'll have another ~95-100K week to end June / start July and then fall back down afterwards.



NSW is up 80% over last year, in the first 6 month.
I don’t believe it will keep this pace. That would result in 8 millions for 2020.
But 7 million should be possible.

I'm starting to believe if they can ship the systems, they will sell. The momentum is just nuts. A couple decent holiday titles/bundles and it's a gimme. All about production.

Pretty decent boost for switch this week, anyone have any idea what the baseline is anymore? It just seems to be up and down so much now which I assume is due to stock.

This is how I think about it.  The shortages started in week 15 (3 weeks after AC release), and nothing too major has released on Switch since then.  Average weekly sales from week 15 to 26 is 67,657.  Since there are still shortages that is really the minimum baseline.  If they had plenty of stock then they would be selling 68k per week minimum.  The true baseline is probably more than this, but even at 68k, that is a huge step up from baseline last year.  Again just look at Rol's table during a typical week last year.

Anyone have numbers to compare Switch's 6 months this year to the best ones from DS/3DS?



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

Switch continues to dominate both the competition and its own previous numbers. PS4 falling back below 10k after the TLoU:Part II boost.



Signature goes here!

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

That's just crazy. The fact that lottery might continue through summer ? Yikes lmao Nintendo really has to ramp that production asap. I'm sure they could sell 100k a week for a while.



Brilliant switch numbers, evergreen software still killing it.
