Nintendo Switch Lite sales are thriving in Japan due to stock shortages of regular Switch model

This little Lite of mine

With reports of the Nintendo Switch having stock issues in Japan due to Coronavirus complications, it seems Japanese customers are resorting to something...smaller. Nintendo's cheaper, portable-only console, the Switch Lite, had a strange boost in sales the week. 63,433 of the 80,312 total Switch units sold were the Lite model. This is quite unusual, as previous weeks have seen the original Switch model greatly outsell the Lite. Hopefully stock issues are resolved shortly, but it's nice that there is another option still available for some.

Thanks to JUMPMANFR for the heads-up!

It really shows that the whole manufacturing world is dependent on China. Not China's fault but that's pathetic.
