I'm really surprised that the Switch has been able to maintain these sales numbers currently.

Especially with the shortages in
Japan. Plus in other regions it does seem weird that during a lockdown period people in the U.S and Europe are going out to buy game consoles.

I'm hoping they can do some good offers after the virus is settled with so they can compensate the unit losses.

So the launch of the Animal Crossing Edition Switch did nothing for sales in NA. I find that hard to believe considering how it sold out everywhere across NA (which is why scalpers are selling them for as high as they are).

Great sales for Switch, XB1 not so much.
