Right now it looks all 3 were pretty close for the month. If more data comes out I'll adjust them some more. Here are our US numbers for January after adjustments.
If these numbers are close to correct, then Switch didn't do much worse than a year ago when leaks had it at ~385k. Still, it's surprising to see Switch in third place.
Then again, I looked at Nintendo's corporate website just now and one investor's question was specifically about the USA and rather weak shipments during the holiday quarter. Nintendo's answer was that they've been unable to meet demand and that the situation continued into 2022. So based on that, a modest January result is not really surprising.
Switch's streak of consecutive NPD wins ended last September already, so my disappointment in the January result isn't big. From the same investors briefing, Nintendo confirmed that they've secured enough production volume to meet their revised hardware forecast, plus they said that they won't let potentially increasing component prices dictate the volume of hardware they'll produce in the next fiscal year.
