Forums - Sales Discussion - Famitsu Sales: Week 3, 2023 (09 Jan - 15 Jan)

Are people really clamoring for an official price cuts when this week tallied a better result than in 2019.

The sales would need to decline to about half of what it is doing now for Nintendo to consider such alternative.

Decent opening for One Piece, although no Switch version is a missed opportunity.
Maybe another late port like the recent Dragon Ball games, Demon Slayer, etc.



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)

There won't be a price cut ever. Inflation pretty much already constitutes as such. There are 3 SKUs for the Switch too, so price conscious people can choose something $50 or $100 cheaper.



That's a great chart from ShadowLink93. It really shows how the Switch hasn't leveled out yet like a lot of its peers. That 33m the DS is at really looks doable right now. 



I wonder if Switch could still finish at ~32m by the end of the year. In 2019, Switch did 4.49m with Pokemon Sw/Sh, Luigi 3, Mario Maker 2 and Ring Fit among its biggest titles.

This year, we're getting Zelda:TotK, Pikmin 4, and the remaining 24 MK tracks confirmed. But we could also see Metroid Prime 4, DK, a new Mario title (2D maybe?). Switch will be in its 7th year now, but there's still so much left in the tank for Switch to come within striking distance of the DS' total by the end of this year.

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

I doubt 32m this year but 31.5m is definitely doable so it should be somewhere between 31.5m and 32m by end of year. That should leave Switch with enough room to easily pass DS's record in its lifetime, and maybe before the Switch successor even comes out depending on when the launch is.

PS5 being up so much is a good sign and my guess is that a typical Switch week will be 20-30% down this year.



Nintendo better release new 2D Mario asap
