Was thinking that too. Does japan usually get such low supply for new consoles? I don't even remember what the switch shipping so early after launch. 12,000 per week seems low. But maybe not?

I feel like even with supply constraint, Sony should have been more prepared than 12,000 units following the launch of their newest platform.
