Tbh, i just tried to find out what that was all about and he's being cryptic and not giving too much away. Is he actually saying Switch sales are good? Never know, with his style of posting even though i will assume it means "good".

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

I think it's a mix of underestimation and factories not being able to produce enough.



Back in September we heard they were aiming to produce 30 million for the fiscal year, we don't know if they raised production further
