Aww I was hoping the Switch was gonna be up YoY. Still being only 13% down is good and a few months ago there was no way I would expect it to be over 500k this week. Something of note is this should be the last week of the 3DS being above 10k.

I also was hoping they would be up YoY.  I actually think if Nintendo shipped more systems to Japan then they could have done it.  Sales are still good this week, but also Switch is in short supply in several places, especially Japan.  I think they could have been up this week if they had shipped more.



The Switch is actually up in the U.S., Europe, and the Rest of the World compared to last year with the Lite launch + Link's Awakening. But the massive deficit in Japan is what has it down overall.

Exhibit A of just how big the handheld market still is over there.

You're probably right it could've been up if more systems were shipped to Japan. I suppose they wanna save more units for the holidays which makes sense due how massive demand will be.



Switch is just an all consuming monster at this point. Over 100m guaranteed.

Depending on how long Nintendo is able to support the Switch, outselling the PS2 and DS isn't out of the question. A long shot, but not impossible.

Yeah that's the dream

The big question; can 3DS reach 76 million, or will it grind to a halt just short of it, like how Vita halted just shy of 16 million?



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

A compilation of 3 old games made the Switch's numbers jump that much. The power of Mario, I guess.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
