  1. Now that we have other console’s selling out to show somewhat standard hardware production, hopefully this shows that Nintendo doesn’t purposefully under stock Switches. They did it for the first month of the Wii and haven’t since, but people think they’ve continously done it since 2006.

    1. It makes perfect sense in that the low number of people who wanted it last week already bought it and the few new buyers of the PS5 this week bought that particular game. Not exactly difficult to understand

      1. No it doesn’t make sense Animal Crossing is Number 3 at 37K. Spiderman should be at 40K units sold. Why would 32 thousand people not make Spider Man top ten but buy a PS5 game exclusive to that console?

        In fact why wouldn’t any PS5 titles be in top list if the PS5 is No2 after the Switch.

        Buy a new console buy dont buy any games? Yeah that makes perfect sense.

  2. It is always a welcome feeling, for the Original Switch, to outsell the handheld Switch, the switch lite. It is also a beautiful feeling knowing Nintendo still makes handhelds. That are successful. Only company that has Maintained handheld consoles, and a home console heavenly variant. Now if only a new F Zero were revealed. Our youngish minds would be delighted.

    F=ma.

    1. I’m also glad to see the disk version of the PS5 outselling the digital only version as well as Series X outselling Series S.

      This will prolong developers from going digital only. I’m glad I’m not the only one that perfer physical over digital.
