Oled down to 34K meant this week was "bad" for Switch. Hopefully Nintendo can produce 50k Oleds a week very soon, 50K Oleds usually means around a 90K total for Switch.

Is the stock situation for OLED bad in Japan? The switch OLED is easily available in the west and has been most of the year. 

also I think Xbox sales are the highest they have ever been world wide .

Elden Ring is holding strong. It's still going to be in the top 10 for a while and the top 30 even longer. Several Nintendo evergreens are up this week too.



Nice 2nd week for Kirby



BOTW just casually walked back into the top 10 following its sequel's delay.



Does Elden Ring PS4 offer a free PS5 upgrade in Japan?

There is enough OLED stock in Japan. Switch is past it's peak. It won't reach 2020/2021 sales again.

Disappointing Switch sales this week. Pretty strong Kirby hold though.

Switch OLED model shortages obviously. OLED model dropped 30 %, while Switch Lite and regular model sold the same as last week.



Excellent hold for Kirby, the next two months will be fruitful for the pink puffball. It let it climb the stairs easily as the #2 best seller of this year behind Pokemon Arceus at this rate


Also yeeeaah, OLED Switch seems to be scarced in some places as usual so I'm not worried about the numbers

Switch is cooling off, as it should. I don't see it hitting ps2/DS numbers. I know others disagree. But I am seeing 3rd best all time, which is still stellar.



People overreacting to Switch sales once more it seems.
Same thing happened when Pokemon launched.
It remains to be seen if it will continue to decline weekly. Could very well be OLED stock situation.
Could also be that 65k will be the new baseline for a while which would be fantastic for it.

Great sales either way you look at it.
I dont think anyone expected Switch to peak this year but it can definitely outdo 2019.
