Really hoping this virus doesn't continue to impact production of the Switch. It would be cool to see how high it could go this year.

I wonder what the Switch sales would be at if they could keep their inventory higher...

Wow, we could really catch up last year's total sales, if Animal Crossing can hold this impact. 63 % market share should also be around what PS4 had in its peak.

"...four home consoles and four handhelds..." Is this a mistake or am i misunderstanding it? Second of all, how come YTD on the chart is still 4.6m?
