Forums - Sales Discussion - Switch OLED Boosts Switch Sales to Over 860,000 - Global Hardware Oct 2 to 9

Also want to say thanks to trunkswd for getting this out on a Monday. I didn't see that coming, but it's a nice surprise.



Around the Network

Very convincing numbers for a 4.5 year old console. Next year should be pretty healthy with the already announced titles like Zelda BOTW 2, Splatoon 3, Kirby, Mario & Rabbids. The numbers in the next weeks should not fall below 350k, maybe even 400k.



good numbers.

I got some data earlier than usual, so I figured to get it out now rather than waiting until the usual Wednesday or Thursday.

Looks like for Switch, this year's deficit compared to 2020 is less than 1 million at this point. With holidays coming soon, I think Switch will be able to close that gap.

Gap is actually 1.2 million. It did close by about 300,000 with the OLED launch.

On IB Benji says OLED is already highly supply constrained in the US.  Oct NPD numbers will be something. 

Quick guess:

Week 1 293K (225K OLED / 70K Other) < Using VGC's USA figure

Week 2 120K (60K OLED / 60K Other)

Week 3 120K (70K OLED / 70K Other)

Week 4 200K (120K OLED / 80K Other) < Fresh shipment at the end of the month along with Mario Party

700-750K, maybe higher.  Think it'll be fairly competitive with Oct 2020.



Also I think there's a good chance the global October record as recorded by VGC is going to fall.

Highest I see is NSW 2020 with 1,960K followed by NDS 07 with 1,620K. Good shot for NSW to blow by 2,000K this October, only needs to average 366K next three weeks to take the crown.

It's not really about the console being 4.5 years old, but mostly that it sold more than 90 million by this point, so we could've expect to be close to saturation.

And yeah, next week numbers should be very high too, the OLED is nowhere to be found
