"202,181 million units" - What a lashing.

Now that is a big mistake. I've gone ahead and corrected it. Thanks for pointing it out.

That's actually saying a lot. Wii was a fluke...but the Switch isn't too far behind.

Seems Nintendo was able to produce the Wii faster than the Switch. Until the 10 million mark is hit we will see how long the Switch can keep up with the aligned PS4 and Wii numbers.

I'm tempted to buy the Switch. Really looking good in games this year. Microsoft should take notes.

Now I want to know which system will have the biggest week. Switch will have a mainline Pokemon, will it be enough to beat Wii's top week?

The switch is doing well. The real test will be when supply issues are solved. It has a good chance to keep up with the Wii in any case.
