When Mat Piscatella says about March 2021: "Switch showing few signs of slowing", he really mean it.

What do you think he means when saying that? Is he saying that Switch sales are starting to show signs of slowing down now or that Switch sales aren't showing any noticeable signs of slowing down? Tbh I'm not sure how to take his statement.

I think he means it's not really slowing down. If there were signs of it happening, he would have said 'Showing a few signs' not showing few signs'.

I agree with this interpretation of said analysis.

XBS: 7.5m

390k PS5s at an average selling price of $480 translates to 681k Switch units at an average selling price of $275. An ASP of $265 for Switch would result in 706k units sold. If the PS5 did notably better than 390k in March, then Switch sold more than 700k in any case.

I don't remember how big the year over year lead was that Switch built during January and February, but 2021 is faring well either way.

I’d be interested to know how much money Nintendo and Sony make from software sales per hardware unit on average. Also, profitability of each hardware unit sold. Subscription service costs are probably a factor as well.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

no numbers yet :(



Extrapolated ranges from ResetEra prediction results (Donny who runs the thread has actuals but cannot disclose them).

937k < Switch < 985k


473k < PS5


234k < XBS < 330k

VGChartz estimates pre-adjustment:

NSW - 879,121

PS5 - 396,095

XBS - 252,046

Hopefully we get concrete leaks one day, but the above is the best we have so far.  Crazy month for PS5 and NSW.

With Switch down only 50-100k units year over year, it looks quite safe to expect the year 2021 to be even bigger than 2020. The USA is behaving similar to Japan.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

After adjustments:

Switch: 954,121

PS5: 483,095

XSX|S: 280,046

If we get better numbers I'll make more adjustments if needed.
