Switch Console Sets Record Launch Sales for Nintendo, Says NPD

Adjust Comment Print

For comparison, Nintendo revealed the Wii U sold 400,000 consoles during its first week on sale in 2012, while the Wii sold 600,000 units in its first eight days on sale.

This is similar to the debacle of the Galaxy Note 7 being followed by the Galaxy S8.

Analyst company SuperData has just released a report announcing Nintendo's latest video game console, the Switch, made through its first release month with 2.4 million sales. So it's not that hard to believe Nintendo's boast that it was able to sell more than 906,000 Nintendo Switches in March, as least in the United States only. In the same announcement, Nintendo announced they sold 1.3 million copies of Zelda.

Switch, the new-age home gaming console system offering additional mobility convenience to user who can easily carry it on the go, has emerged as the fastest-selling video game system in Nintendo's history. This makes the Switch the fastest selling console from Nintendo to date, though these numbers are within a "nontraditional month". Once they start launching, I suspect, more consumers will get interested in the Nintendo Switch. Where its long-term game stands has yet to be seen, as it's still working to make the system readily available to buyers interested in it.

Russell Westbrook's record-breaking season in Opta numbers
Although there are still some doubters about his game and attitude, Westbrook just cemented his name in the history books. The milestone happened with 4:17 left in the fourth quarter after Westbrook assisted to Semaj Christon's three-pointer.

A lot of this success has to be due to the coinciding release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Playing a game that is so big and complex is quite a feat. If so, what games have you bought for it?

The NPD charts are in for March, 2017, and Nintendo came out the victor. The quality leap is great when compared to the Nintendo 3DS.

The "Switch Mini" would be created to appeal to children specifically, with the analysts pointing out the existing console's size and weight not being entirely suitable for youngsters.

In addition to Payday 2, THQ Nordic offered up two new games heading to the console this year with Sine Mora EX and the very cool looking BattleChasers: Nightwar.
