Signature goes here!

AC won’t sell as high this quarter, it’ll be very impressive for a 500k sell thru retail as that puts its roughly on avg 40k a week.

That said here is something interesting so check it out...

Oh wow this is crazy. Another almost 100k week. Production has been going up and we can see it with bigger and bigger shipments but still crazy to think it is selling that much but still in lottery.

Switch will end up being MASSIVE in japan.

YTD is up by 1.2m now. Next week will probably be notably down again because of fluctuations in shipments, but as usual, it's hard to predict under these circumstances.

I was wrong before, but this week with some lotteries and some other info, this week looks to be flat or slightly higher, probably due to paper Mario coming out. To be safe I say between 80k-105k



Wow so Switch this year is where it was at end of October last year. Starting to take on the beginning of 2019 holiday sales next week.
The AC vs PokeSmash comparison is crazy.

All I can say is Nintendo better be ramping up production. They need to be putting at least 25 million Switches on store shelves this year or there are gonna be massive shortages during the holidays. Why is Nintendo always so conservative when they have super hot systems? They said earlier this year they are only increasing production by 10% this year right? Take a page from Sony and ramp up production 50%!

 Caught them off guard, they are shipping as many as they can produce, and they have to hold some back for the holiday quarter

The 10% increase was a rumor, not an official Nintendo statement. Regardless, known Switch sell-through in Japan and the USA during the last four months almost certainly confirms that the rumor was true. Additionally, plans change; Nintendo knows their sell-through, so by now they will long have ordered an additional increase in production over the initially planned 10% for the year. But the chain of logistics doesn't allow such adjustments to show up in sales charts until a few months later, because there's a lot of coordination required between the multitude of part suppliers for the console.

As for being conservative with production, all three of those Nintendo consoles (DS, Wii, Switch) have sold above anything else in video game history, so unprecedented demand can easily lead to shortages. I am reminded of 2017 and Nintendo's forecast of 10m Switch units between April 2017 and March 2018, and people on this forum being worried. Nintendo ended up shipping 15m units, so relax. They went into calendar year 2020 with a base production level of a good 20m units for the year, so if they could handle a 5m increase in 2017, they can manage the same or more in 2020.
