I would not mind to pay it even 400 if I could live in the only one smart and successful country of Europe like you.

Not really looks like it will be the big hit during holidays, at least in Japan.

Don't forget that RFA only debuted at 68k. I still think it will do well in the holiday, though I don't expect it to have nearly as strong legs as RFA in the long run.

I don't think it was expected to be. It's kind of a niche product since it's limited to people who like are going to play with a toy car, which is far more limited than the general switch population. I think 1,000,000 would be a success for this. Two million would be great.
