The Switch and Xbox Series S are available on walmart site and other online retailers.

That switch link is on Walmart site but is from a reseller and above MSRP. 

Maybe what you see is based on your location? This is what I see? Even went to checkout and it appears that that walmart store only has 1 more in stock if I went with the pickup option.

Yeah pickup isn't available for me on the Series S but it does say that 

"You can also buy this Black Friday item in stores starting
 Friday, Nov 26, 5AM local time"
Maybe they're saving the store stock for BF?

Right now 2022 is looking like another decent enough year. Switch should be over 120 million by the end of next year. 

Yep, next year is looking like a really good year for 1st/2nd party titles.

Pokemon Legends, Splatoon 3 & Breath of the Wild 2 should all do 10+ million

Kirby Forgotten Land & Mario Rabbids 2 should do a few million each

Triangle Strategy, Advance Wars & Bayonetta 3 could each hit 1 million.

I doubt we will see another revision next year but we could possibly see a price cut next fall, maybe Lite-$149.99 and OLED-$299.99 with the original model being phased out.

I expect sales to be down but we could see another 20+ million year.

If there were a price drop I wouldn't expect Lite to drop to $149.99. More likely a tiny drop to $179.99 or $169.99. Either OG Switch dropped $249.99 or it gets phased out. While OLED as you said would drop to $299.99.

Yeah that could just be wishful thinking on my part, I want to get each of my kids their own Lite but would like them to be as cheap as possible lol

That makes sense getting them the Lite. You never know. Although a price drop isn't happening until sales start to drop a lot.

Switch ahead of PS5 in Europe and XS ahead of PS5 in America, both bucking recent trends.
Sony almost seems to have bailed on Japan for the time being, less than 2% of their global sales from the week came from there.

Yeah the only reason to think anything other than a great result is because yet again people kept pushing switch expectations higher and higher and saying it would beat 2020.

It's a great year of sales.

Yeah I agree, I feel like the only cause of disappointment with Switch sales is people having unrealistically high expectations.

For a system in its 5th year, in a global chip shortage no less, the Switch is on fire.



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