Switch christmas sales are well below what I was expecting

So to everyone who was asking if the lack of big Q4 releases was going to after the Switch the answer is clearly yes, it did

Switch sales are pretty much flat year-over-year for this week. With Christmas being 2 days later in the week than last year I'd expect Switch to be up year-over-year for the week ending December 26.

Switch passes 3DS with the next set of global numbers meaning from here on out only the top 10 selling platforms are in its sights.

Switch has been consistently outperforming 2019 YoY, so I was expecting the same for Q4



Okay so by the end of the year, the Switch will probably reach 77.5 million units sold, so the total shipments can reach 79-80 million, which would be huge.

There was no big release for the Switch this holiday season. Last year there was Pokemon, while this year there really was nothing close to the popularity of Pokemon.
