Ahead of the upcoming Famitsu report on physical video game and game console sales in Japan, analyst David Gibson has reported a few sales milestones for the Nintendo Switch and its library. Here’s a breakdown of the latest data:

Nintendo itself hasn’t provided any data, but based on information from GfK Entertainment, Switch OLED is off to a strong start in the UK.

We’re hearing that last week was the 14th biggest week for Switch console sales ever. The only weeks with higher sales largely came during peak Christmas and Black Friday sales periods (Black Friday 2019, 2018, and 2020 rank at the top). Also, for the initial launch for Switch, it had the fourth biggest week overall.
