We are having a Switch pizza this week!

And Splatoon did about 44% of its sales on the eshop(digital). Just confirms what me and others have been saying: About half of first party games sales must be comming from digital.

Which means that games like XC 3 must be around double of what it did physically in japan(so around 300k in japan alone, in only a month)

I wonder how well it did in NA, all my local gamestops actually sold out beyond their preorders

Alright, I’ve never bothered with this series. Looks like butt to me. But I’m going to give it a shot. Now I just have to find out.

Damn, Switch steamrolls the competition with a bulldozer. I don't think I've ever seen Nintendo crush it like this. Not since the 80s early 90s but not even then were they this prolific and popular.

And we still have a new Pokemon coming in a few months.

Jesus, I wonder if Splatoon and Pokemon might be able to push Switch to another 20 million year.

I would not bet against it, the holiday period is traditionally a strong one for Nintendo and with a new Pokemon game.

There would need to be a big downturn for Switch not to sell 20 million in 2022, it's on pace for around 22 million. Holiday Q4 sales alone have been at least 10.5 million in the last three years.
