Nintendo Switch has dominated the market with terrifying market share that had never been achieved before in Japan for both software and hardware in January. Meanwhile, scalping problem was still prevalent in January as both next gen consoles' software unable to have any games sold more than 2.6K copies despite selling around 75K hardware in a month.

Nintendo Switch sales momentum isn't going to slow down any time soon as more big games are coming to the system together with exclusive hardware SKU to help the sales momentum.

Resellers and scalpers. This is a widespread issues especially when Sony decided 7-15K per week is enough after 100K(very small for Japan market) launched shipment.

One thing for sure, PS4 delayed launch strategy is much better than current fiasco.
