All 3 consoles are killing it tbh, all beating their previous console, relative to their release.

Is this the first time switch has been outsold by PS4, PS5, Xbox one, Xbox x/s and 3ds combined?

PS5 is currently outselling PS4 (launch aligned) and should reach 10m in 3 weeks – at the same time as Wii launch aligned.

The next few months are likely to see Switch sales plummet in anticipation of the OLED version. However, I'm not sure that this new version has achieved enough media success to create a wave effect.

I would bet more on a very slight drop in sales until October, and also a slight rise after that until Christmas, when the OLED version really starts to catch on.

I am still doing that comparison. It is part of the monthly sales comparison articles.

July has a lot of games: Ys IX, Skyward Sword HD, Monster Hunter Stories...
So it might not too bad this month.

However, there is an improved Switch coming. So people will start holding off on getting Switchs until then.

True enough.

What I want to see is how the slow down will affect the overall fiscal year performance of the Switch.

Well, it makes sense that everything that will be lost before October will be recovered after that, also taking into account the magnet effect of the new version.

"Magnet Effect"? What is that? And will it make up the sales and be an improvement on what we were already seeing?

Starting October, the only thing that's going to stop Switch's sales are the chip shortages.

Nintendo already forecast 25 million for the fiscal year. That would be 3 million less than last year. You can pretty much assume that's the low end for the year.

Of course that's April through March rather than a calendar year for their forecast, but it's usually applicable to the calendar year as well. But the switch would have to be down by almost 10% consistently to sell as low as 25 million. When it's all said and done, they'll be down by a million compared to last year at the most. It could still match last year depending on how many current switch owners buy the new model. I can't imagine it will be a tremendous amount of people, but there will be some. That should somewhat balance out any potential lower sales through the summer.

No they won’t, Switch has the software to keep that from happening. Monster Hunter Stories 2, Skyward Sword HD, NEO: The World Ends With You, The Great Ace Attorney, WarioWare Get It Together! and No More Heroes 3 plus some smaller titles will be way more than enough to keep sales going strong. There are plenty of people who will not wait to play them.
