Not much going on this week, except that HW is picking up again. Looks like manufacturers got a hold on corona situation.

Partially, it is showing Switch was indeed cannibalising a bit the 3DS line in Japan as a good deal of the purchases were due to its portability factor. I think that the lower price helps, but the Lite is really showing the portable factor for them once again if you focus on the sale breakdown per device type.

Switch Lite sales have picked up mostly because the Switch is out of stock thanks to Corona, and Animal Crossing is coming up.

Shortages could have a hand in it, software also drives demand, but Nintendo is able to meet both with the Lite. It is possible that handhelds as a stronghold is something they feared losing on hence they brought the dedicated handheld machine concept back.

Shortages could have a hand in it, software also drives demand, but Nintendo is able to meet both with the Lite. It is possible that handhelds as a stronghold is something they feared losing on hence they brought the dedicated handheld machine concept back.
You can stop with your headcanon.

2nd hand OG Switch is sold at nearly the same price as a new OG Switch in Japan.

They need to bring the 2017 lottery thingy in order to sell the OG switch.

Not sure why you are being this aggressive. I was not, was not talking to you either. Still, fill your boots and pick up fights where there are none.

I am not disputing shortages, not disputing Switch is still in demand and sales are good. Apparently daring to suggest something that does not paint Nintendo next to Godliness (you call what I was saying that much of a dig to Nintendo, really?) makes your blood boil.

When you are outsold almost 10:1 every week, the winner is clear. Still, the user base overall can support its own fair share of games, but Japanese authors need to have the international version ready sooner.

Dreams can't even crack top 50.
Yeh. It charted for the 1st 2 weeks barely, and this is what it was at last week:

49./36. [PS4] Dreams Universe (Sony Interactive Entertainment) {2020.02.14} - 756 / 1,749

Given #50 is 1K this week, there was no chance it'd chart (unless it increased in sales a good bit).

If the ps4 can increase like this every week the switch has no chance!
