Well, Christmas is around the corner, so of course more people are just going to wait until December to make their purchases, plus the new consoles are around the corner. This is just the calm before the storm.

Down from 4 million a week to 300,000. That's a REALLY steep cliff it fell off of.

Cause thanks to the release of Pikmin 3 Deluxe tomorrow and this last Direct sales will more than likely go back up and be above 400,000 for Switch unless stock is starting to bemoan issue again.
