It seems like Nintendo has to pick a shortage in the US or Japan. Maybe it's going back and forth.

I get the feeling they know it will sell in Japan regardless of how long it takes to get to market, so they're getting as many as they can as fast as they can into foreign markets.

I hope that by holiday season, anyone who want a Switch would be able to get their hand on one.

They knew what they were doing by releasing a hybrid.. Well its technically a handheld but whatever.. I have no doubt the switch will be MASSIVE in japan throughout its life cycle.. I wish more people would give it a chance in the west because it is a great device and nintendo always does top notch software.

People are, n4g community is in its own little world and has been filled by fanboys of playstation over the past 5 years. Originally the people on this site were saying it was doomed to fail, next users on this site arguing whether it could even sell close to ps4, now they are saying no way it will sell 130 million....wonder what the conversation will be in another few months on this site about Nintendo Switch haha but I see a CLEAR direction in where its heading if we follow the pattern here :)

It's been selling crazy numbers over there since it launched. This is due to very high demand not artificial restricted supply or whatever the tin foil hat brigade are always banging on about...

Its virtually neck n neck with the wii's initial sales. Word of mouth is much easier too since its portable so its going to remain a hot item.. This holiday season should be golden for them
