Strongest start for a console in many countries.

Nintendo forecasted during the last quarterly report that shipment figures for the Switch would be 17.74 million by the end of March. There are five weeks remaining as the current VGC estimates are for February 24. Once you add in the remaining weeks VGC estimates will likely be in the 16.4-16.6 million range. Just over one million consoles on store shelves and in transit is typical for a console.

Looks like it is having strong legs so far.

For $500 I wasn't expecting a huge impact beyond the first couple months either. The Xbox One X is likely helping sales a bit, but not much.

January was also a 5 week month, which hasn't happened in several years. That helped push sales up year on year so much.

It was a strong holiday for all 3 major consoles.

Thanks for pointing that out. The number has been fixed.

It is well deserved with its strong first year lineup.

The launch of the Xbox One X and Xbox One S deals helped push Xbox One sales in November. All 3 consoles had a good holiday season. However, a higher percentage of Xbox One sales occur during the holiday season than the other two consoles.

NPD did show the PS4 outsold the Xbox One, while the Xbox One had higher revenue due to the higher cost of the X.

It is a good time to be a gamer and console maker.

With the 2018 lineup sales for the PS4 should remain strong and easily surpass 90 million units by the end of the 2018.

The game helped to nearly double the weekly Switch sales as well.

It won't take much longer for the Switch to outsell the Wii U. A big turnaround for Nintendo.

The Switch did outsell the PS4 in the US. But worldwide the PS4 was the bestseller.

Launching with Breath of the Wild and having Splatoon 2 and Mario Odyssey has helped sell many Switch consoles this year. The concept of a hybrid console was a great idea on Nintendo's part. Imagine once a mainline Pokemon game launches for it.

With the Xbox One X out in November it should help sales this holiday period. But it does look like it won't be enough to help boost sales long term wit the $499 price.

@darthv72 This is around the time the Kinect was released for the Xbox 360, which helped sales for the console immensely.

The Xbox One X will help push Xbox One sales this holiday, but without a price cut it won't do much beyond this year. They need to improve their image and get more exclusives. Right now the only series you can count on from them are Halo, Gears of Wars and Forza. Getting a new studio to work on a new Fable RPG would help. Though, in the first half of next year there is Crackdown and Sea of Thieves.

I remember when I got my Nintendo 64 in Christmas 1996 with Super Mario 64. I went crazy.
