Switch is losing around 50k weekly. Damn virus.

Is the PS4 really down 200,802 units from last year or is it a typo and it should be 20,802?

I had a brain fart and forgot to update the year-over-year figures.

No, that's correct. PS4 didn't drop below 175k last year and there were some big(ish) releases in March last year

Well, 200k was last week, my bad. 91k it is for this one...

I corrected the error in the article. I see PS4 and Xbox One staying around 40% down year-over-year. As of now there are only Switch shortages in Japan. Only a matter of time before we start seeing shortages in the rest of the world. It depends on how quickly China can get their manufacturing up and running.
