Following Nintendo's shipment figures we have adjusted down our Nintendo Switch estimates and following Sony's PS4 shipment figures we have adjusted up our PS4 figures. XS and X1 also saw small upward adjustments.

Lowest Switch week of this year. 300k isn't something to complain about, though.

Switch sales are slowing down which means the cliff is now imminent. Don't worry though, Nintendo first-party games will always sell.

No need for doom and gloom since Switch still had a strong performance. In fact this Q1 beat all previous years aside from 2020 which makes sense considering that was the height of the pandemic. If you think Switch isn’t going to have a super strong holiday and 2022 your silly. Switch is still well on the way to taking the no 1 spot.

Even the WiiU had strong holidays.

Wii U strongest year didn't even reach the 4 million. Damn I feel bad for Wii U...
Switch selling 300,000 weekly when a new model (that is sold out ) is coming... Let's wait to see what happen.

Wii U's only strong holiday was its release. Every other holiday after that it lagged severely behind. Maybe the only good holiday it had was the year Mario Kart 8 and Smash released.

That is 100% not the case with the Switch. The Switch isn't seeing trickle holidays, it's outselling everything in a month to month basis. If I had to guess, the Switch probably has 2 more years before sales fall below 10 million yearly. It'll probably finish at 140 mil though PS2 numbers are a strong possibility.
