I would love to see switch sales numbers for the past week.  It had to be the most units available since launch.

The last month has had a steady stream. July sales were great though no numbers were given. The PS4 surprisingly was neck and neck according to npd.

Too bad the bending issue is popping up though. That's unfortunate for all of those people affected.

Actually, out of all the NS issues so far(left JC sync issue, bad Wi-Fi, screen scratching, etc), the bending is actually the best problem to have, as it really doesn't affect performance in any way, or hinder the use of the actual system.

 

Now of course over time, if the bend gets bad enough, it could cause an issue to some internal component, but so far, no reports of those types of issues have happened. So, unless someone lays the system flat, or uses a level on it, no one would really know the warping is even there.

Knowing Nintendo they will claim that the bending issue is normal and doesn't affect gameplay, and they won't fix it. Sadly based on all the issues with the Switch, it's clear that it was rushed out without proper testing after the Wii U bombed out. I would personally just return the system to the retailer if I had any of these problems, and wait for a better (fixed) version of the handheld.

People said the same thing about the iPhone 6 Plus back when it came out.  "Its just a bend, it's not that prevalent, and it doesn't affect performance"...fast forward a year later, everyone has/will have "touch disease" on their iPhone 6 Plus.

Neither.  Made up problem.  

 

 

Wake me up if it becomes an actual problem.  I wouldn't doubt if yours was like that day one too.  Pretty sure mine was. 

 

VEry much a non-issue at the moment.  Don't notice it unless you eyeball it.  Doesn't affect anything.  IT's just not perfectly level is all.  But if ever look at your walls or your floor you would notice those things are not perfectly level either. 

 

How much does Nintendo pay you per post?

Gotta love the sales of the Switch in July and Splatoon too.  Also gotta love how many spend their precious time trolling Nitnendo threads. 

 

Decent amt of  stock in my area now.  Anyone wanting one in town can get one for the time being.

What's the worldwide sales and US/NA sales total supposed to be now?

I remember after month one they touted this 2.7M number (must have been WW not just US) but then in month two it was a modest 200,000 to 275k more). I guess that's normal, not a sign that it's only popular for the same 5M early adopters as Wii U and will only add another 5 over its lifetime. But the 18M fiscal 2017 number they touted seemed way too optimistic.

I'm just hoping it sells well enough so that 3rd parties keep supporting it.

I think 10 million was Nintendo's estimate for the year/fiscal year.  I wouldn't call it more than a 1st party system.  

 

They should hit 10 million with Mario and xmas coming up.

The way the switch is selling it could be even more popular than the ds or snes, it's a little early to predict any of that though

I really wouldn't mind buying one of these down the line, but I'd want them to fix the hardware issues that plague a lot of owners. Given how little they're making and how fast they're selling makes that an impossibility for the foreseeable future unfortunately.

By popular do you mean sales? If so there is a pretty big gap between snes and the ds lol

I mean we don't know how many versions of the switch we are going to get, we had the ds, dslite , dsi, 3ds, 3ds xl,new 3ds, new3ds xl, 2ds xl.

Then we had the wii and Wii U

My real concern is this: if I download 200 dollars of Eshop games and then Nintendo makes a new upgraded switch that I want to buy, id have to rebuy those 200 dollars of games, Fuck that

For all of the ds incarnations with dlc capabilities, they allowed transfer of the content, although not as simple as it should be.  Consoles have not had upgraded versions, but I don't see why they wouldn't allow transfers in some difficult nintendo way if an unlikely upgraded version ever came out.

Yeah, as shit as "N" is 90% of the time, they do allow for transfer of games from one system in a line to another. I've done 4-5 3DS transfers personally, and while rather time consuming, the process in general worked rather well. Everything stays 100% as it was, from folders, to settings. I've only done the Vita transfer 2 times I believe, and that wasn't so much a transfer, as it was just deactivating one system, and reactivating another. But when your done, nothing is saved, so you have to re-do folders(bubbles), wallpapers, etc and it's a HUGE pain in the ass.

 

So "N" while doing something that is way out of touch with the current industry standards, I do give them credit, but of course a unified account would be best, but that seems like it will never happen. Hell, how long will it even take for VC and other online features to even start? These guys biggest revenue stream should be their past library, and it's really an after thought to them most of the time, which shows how clueless they are more often than not.

Snagged a Switch at a Gamestop in Columbia, SC. A Target was listed as having one on istocknow but the ones at Gamestop weren't listed. Apparently the district manager went around the stores and dropped off a few each yesterday. Glad I was able to use my trade-in credit.

 

Edit: Only the gray versions were in stock, unfortunately.

So have they finally stopped forcing those bundles on consumers, and just selling the system on it's own?

For now, but only in store. Local prestige store told me yesterday that all SC district stores had more in reserve and would be distributed on a sales performance basis.

So in other words, GS will release the systems when they can make the most from them, gotcha. LOL

 

I would bet money they are selling some, and keeping some, and once the holidays roll around, and people can't find them anymore, the bundles will be back, and probably worst than before. Honestly, some of the bundles where decent, as most items included, someone may have bought anyways.

 

Now those Thinkgeek bundles, is a completely different matter. A bunch of crap they can't give away, and then they want to prey on desperation, and move "junk", that's just BS.

Why do you even post if "N" is such shit? You can post paragraphs of garbage but can't type Nintendo? do you even own a switch? Why are you here? Why do you have the most posts in this thread?

 

Questions never too be answered.

 GS got a ton of stock this week if you missed it.  Every store had at least 5. No bundles.    BestBuy got a ton of stock as well.  

 

CAn't vouch for Target or Walmart.  Amazon had enough stock to last a day or so. 

 

Many GS's still have them in stock right now.  Same with BB. BestBuy disabled the ability to check Switch stock online again after they briefly re-enabled it so you have to go into your local store to check.

Okay you were right about the 10 million, whatever website said 18 was huge speculation, however the 10M is April 1st '17 to March 30th 2018, so doesn't include the early March launch and initial 2.75M units.

So in its first full year, by 3/11/17 seems like they expect to hit the five year lifetime sales of the Wii U.

By June 30th Zelda without Wii U was at 4M, Mario Kart which launched two months later at 3.75M, and arms and 1-2-S at about 1.5 each. So even though technically there are far more Wii Us still out there, the attach rate is huge. Splatoon must also be killin' it. Cause that was a late in its life (after people traded away) Wii U game.

Until they enable saves to be copied and moved they haven't addressed one of the bigger annoyances about the system. It's not keeping it from selling but it is a pain in the butt.

Cause that was a late in its life (after people traded away) Wii U game.

The attach rate for those games was "huge" because there were very few games available for the handheld. I don't see many 3rd party games coming out in the near future, besides some indies. Switch is widely available now, but the game library is still small and very limited. Unless Nintendo can somehow get many more 3rd party developers on board, it's going to have a difficult time. And the lack of power will directly impact potential ports of 3rd party games, leaving original content as the remaining option.

Add to all that the many design flaws and defects, it's going to be a rough road ahead.
