I don't understand. Nintendo says that they've sold 52.48 units as of December 31st 2019 which means that at this point they are probably at least a little over 53 mill. But you guys are saying Nintendo is lying. Do you think they'll meet their new projections and end the year with 54.2 mill or more?

Those figures from Dec 31, 2019 were shipped, not sold to consumers.

Nintendo give the numbers they have shipped to retailers, VGC tries to track the numbers that have been bought by consumers so they would always be a little lower than Nintendo's.

Wow it seems like the Switch shortages are hitting the sales figures hard in Japan, they only sold about half of the units from the week prior at only 41,000. Fuck the coronavirus man....

All platforms are down this week, however, Switch dropped the most due to the reason you stated. There was a huge drop in sales in Japan.

It sucks but at the same time creates pent up demand that will even out in the end. That is, those who wanted the switch and couldn't get it due to supply will just buy it later. We should expect several weeks much higher than usual as soon as shippments stabilize.
