Nintendo Switch Has Sold Nearly 8 Million Units, 14 Million Projected, & More

Recommended Posts

 

Hi Everyone! Just like to add some additional information to the video.

For comparison in the same time period from launch
PS2: 3.52 million (granted it was only available in Japan)
3DS: 6.68 million
DS: 6.65 million
Wii: 9.27 million
Wii U: 3.61 million
PS4: 10.2 million

Keep in mind PS4, Wii, Wii U and DS had holiday launches. Switch had yet to have its first holiday season as of this most recent sales update making these number even more astounding. It could outsell the first year of DS which is ver impressive. For context DS and PS2 are the best selling consoles of all time. 

The switch currently has an attach rate of 3.7 games per system. This is higher than that of the PS4 in this stage of the system's life.

Cheers for the comparison figures of other systems.

Strong launch so far, certainly, hopefully we'll see that continue over time, and see no real reason we won't. Do you happen to have the equivalent attach rate figures for this stage in their life cycle for any other systems?

Sorry for the late reply.

For the PS4 the attach rate at this point was a little under 3 games per system. I can't find the attach rates for Wii and DS unfortunately.

I think things would be 10x better if Nintendo would distribute more of an item when they release it, so there isn't stock issues in stores. Just my $0.02
