    1. Does scalping really even affect sales numbers?
      You have the scalper, buying 1 unit.
      You have the buyer in need of 1 unit.
      If you remove the scalper from the equation, you have a buyer in need of 1 unit.
      You still end up with one unit sold, all the scalper is doing is raising the price of the transaction for the buyer.

      Only real way I see scalping affecting sales, if they can’t move the merchandise.
      But that would only mean that someone needs to reevaluate their choice of profession.

      The real question is, how much the production capacity and/or forecasting affected the end results.

      1. Well, I was thinking about the correlation between those scalping bots and articles stating it’s impossible to get a Switch nowadays because of them. The Animal Crossing Switch is heavily scalped atm. Probably not that impactful overall, but it makes me wonder though.

      2. I think this is being viewed too much in a vacuum.

        1. If somebody buys a Switch at $200, that price point may allow them to purchase games and a Switch Lite.
        2. If somebody needs to spend $350 on the Switch, they won’t be purchasing as much from Nintendo afterwards.
