Forums - Sales Discussion - Global Hardware Feb 21-27 - Switch Sales Top 80 Million Units

Now the Switch just passed the floor of my original prediction. (80-100 million)



Around the Network

News on amd getting a lot more capacity at tsmc and production to increase across the board. Although might be a few months to see the jump. But this might signal the end of the shortages.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

That is good news even if ends up taking a few months before we see any significant increase in next-gen consoles shipped. Demand is far higher than current supply.

Damn loving the switch selling so much. Hopefully 30mil+ for the fiscal year ending March and for the calendar year ending December



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Switch in North America > PS5 + PS4 + Xbox Series + Xbone combined.



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

Another fantastic week for the Switch!



Pocky Lover Boy! 

I see the trend won't be Switching anytime soon...



This is amazing the Switch momentum is still going like this well into 2021. Many people thought Switch sales were only historically high in 2020 due to the pandemic, and while I agree that the pandemic certainly was a big reason why it sold as well as it did, no way the effects from the pandemic one year ago is still keeping Switch sales this high literally 1 year after the lockdown started. While most other forms of entertainment such as Netflix and smartphones did see an initial pandemic boost in sales and subscriptions, after the first 2 months of lockdown many entertainment companies earnings and sales went back down to earth and in some cases down as its market reached a saturation point and people don't have as much money with unemployment. I find it difficult to believe the pandemic literally a year in is still the primary reason for switch sales. Animal Crossing and more evergreens are pushing switch sales to astronomical levels.

I actually originally thought that in February we'll begin to see the first noticeable decline from 2020 sales since I noticed the Switch was becoming more readily available in stores, making me think that demand has finally slowed down. But nope, seems like Nintendo just shipped one huge restock to stores and demand still isn't slowing down.

The 2021 Switch sales are on track to outsell the Xbox Series total sales

Yeah and PS5's too lol, why are trying to imply? I'm still waiting for you to show me the data showing Xbox is not profitable, by the way. You literally left that thread when I showed you the real data lmao

It's crazy to think how a couple years ago it seemed outlandish to many for the Switch to be set to outsell the Wii,. Now we are talking about the Switch being in the range of the DS.
