No, there isn’t any supply issues in Japan

So it's all over for Switch in Japan? 

All over meaning what?

Why is it so hard for you guys to accept that Switch has peaked in Japan?

the OG switch might have dropped from the cliff, but the OLED just started the climb

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

No, there are not shortages of any model in Japan.

right right, anecdotal evidence right right
even if the OLED model is just getting some supply in, doesn't mean it isn't starting the climb

Switch will probably sell something like 4-4.5 million this year. A big decline from 2020/2021 but still very strong sales.

Similar to DS/3DS when they peaked, had a year of modest decline followed by a big decline.

DS
2006-8.86m
2007-7.14m
2008-4.03m

3DS
2012-5.62m
2013-4.93m
2014-3.15m

NSW
2020-5.96m
2021-5.58m
2022-4.2m

Anecdotal evidence? I’m going off of what Chris1964 (the guy we have been stealing Japan sales data from for like 15 years) is saying. He’s not just some random guy who walked into a store and saw units on sale and went “welp, I guess shortages are over!”

Him saying the switch won't sell 4.5 m in 2022 in japan doesn't equal the conclusion there aint shortages on the OLED or that the OLED isn't going to carry the switch this year

"No I'm not referring to this, supply issue is half of Furukawa's concerns for Switch hardware in 2022."

I’m not talking about any specific post, I’m talking about the things he has been saying for over a month, him and Hiska along with other prominent members of the Japanese sales community have all said the same thing, there are no shortages in Japan.

We haven't had a single week with a switch shortage, just like we won't when the QHD switch drops in november
