Overall, though, Japan is definitely Nintendo territory. Nintendo is still killing it.

Switch is not selling more due to stock issues. I think that if there were no stock issues with OLED model, sales will be like 500k per week. What do you think?

I didn't know the OLED model was still having availability issues. Usually see at least one or two of them in my local walmarts.

It's usually sold at a big upmark online which indicates limited stock. Also in Spain in the last few weeks the OLED model was less than 10% of all sold Switches.

Super Mario 3D World pushed a couple of units in the week a year ago. Switch still sold more than in the release week of Pokémon Legends Arceus. Not bad.

Is it possible Series sales as many as PS5 in Japan right now? Hard to believe.
