I think that will be enough to keep the Switch ahead of the Wii for the next 2 months so it wins the first year.

Well Month 8-10 for Switch was Holiday season, month 8-10 for Wii was like June.

Wii will have a 'comeback' or at least reduce the deficit in 4-6 months.

It's not even likw ot was doing that bad before December lol. I'm sure if they shipped enough to Japan they wouldn't even have needed December to be in front in the same time frame.

Good to see Nintendo successful again though 👌

I disagree, I had trouble finding a Wii 2 years after release. The Switch had a abundant stock this Christmas.
