If Switch can sell over 325,000 in two weeks it will take top spot for Quarter 3. 162,500 a week.

It wont, its supply issues. Itll be lucky to get 250k

I'm thinking 120k and 80k for the next two weeks.

Is nintendo doing the same thing with the launch of pokemon and the switch edition? Seems like another good opportunity. Im still waiting for the announcement of a Mario 2D in the switch. I hope it happens next year; seems like switch will sell another ~4.5 M in Japan this year, which is really good

Yes, the Pokémon OLED Switch is launching 2 weeks before the game.

oh get real supply issues into its 6th year? what do you think this is, the nintendo unity days?

There's still a global semiconductor crunch that Nintendo is not immune to.

They're not as hard hit as PS5 and Xbox Series, but they don't have an infinite secret stash of silicon and their own private foundries.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Silicon shortage



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Nintendo's 3.5m figure for Japan means that S3 sold around 1.6m digital.
