Similar to my earlier posts, I will compare average weekly sales of the Switch again. I will also compare it to my last update.
Week 26 (vs Week 21)
2022: 82k (-9k)
2021: 115k (-9k)
2020: 102k (-6k)
2019: 57k (-5k)
2018: 45k (-0)
2017: 58k (-10k)
2017: 40k (-2k) Launch week spread out into 9 weeks.
Last time I didn't do proper weekly sales of the Switch for 2017 and divided it by the same number of weeks as the other years due to launch week. I noted down both for comparisons sake this time.
To analyze the new numbers, I do have to note that 2022 is dropping as hard as 2021 did, but 2021 came from a much higher amount of sales. The weekly average sales are currently weaker than 2019s CY weekly average sales, so the Switch will have to minimize the dropoff with Splatoon 3 and rise up high during the holidays to beat 2019s numbers.
