As Famitsu reports, the Nintendo Switch OLED has sold exactly 138,409 in its first week of sales in Japan. Bloomberg estimates the start as a failure, but blames it on ongoing supply and production problems that even Nintendo cannot ignore.
The original Switch got off to a much better start with 330,637 units. The Nintendo Switch Lite also launched stronger in 2019 with 177,936 devices in Japan. Would the OLED model have started better with greater availability?
In this country, the console is currently sold out even at the largest retailers. Even before release, you had to be fairly observant to get your hands on a pre-order. Although, of course, one was far from PS5 terms.
In Japan, according to the Bloomberg report, the OLED model is sold by lottery in many stores, a common method in Japan. Have you secured one of the new consoles?
