Switch has an uphill battle to catch up to 2020. I wonder how big of a launch the OLED will have.

Apparently it's pretty much sold out everywhere, there are even loteries again

This either means HUGE demand and/or Nintendo greatly underestimated the demand for it and didn't ship that many.

Just like their Special Editions of their games.

We will know on Thursday how well it did in Japan with Famitsu, and possibly get an idea how well it did in the UK once the UK charts drop on Monday.

The global chip crunch might prevent there being as many available as there were of the Lite when it launched back in 2019, but demand definitely seems to be there:

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