not too shabby for the Switch to pass 80 million. It should have no problems reaching 100.

I can almost say I am one of those new Series S/X sales. It wont arrive until March so it would be counted then.

I thought about getting one but I feel with the lack of new games that interest me I will just stick to my One X a couple more years. The Medium is the only game that I almost upgraded for but I just beat it on my PC instead even though it ran at 20fps during split screen parts.

Not to sound like a hater, but I don't get the Switch craze. It's selling better now than it did when it had heavy hitters coming out.

Nintendo haters try to marginalize all the first party games as “ports” but don’t acknowledge how crazily well they sell or how good the meta-critics are, and how good the original game was, or how frequently they have released. Going by this place I can imagine that people without a switch would think the console had no games at all. When in reality, Hades was one of the best games that came out last year(the best, IMO), and the Nintendo first party games are awesome, selling incredibly well, plentiful, and most people who own a switch love them. People see this in the real world and the popularity spreads. If you stop looking at them as ports, and look at them as Nintendo first party games, you’ll realize they are still putting out a ton of stuff that is selling incredibly well. Also, they are keeping their games exclusive. A smart move, that Sony should probably follow. For people who have not played Mario Odyssey, that game is still new to them when they buy switch. It doesn’t matter how old it is, because they have never been able to play it. Thus, the switch is evergreen, without even a price drop yet.

Children, Mommy's, Grannies because of the pandemic. Its been a gold mine this covid for Nintendo combined with the fact switch is now the 3ds replacement its bound to sell loads but will never offer any next gen experiences or features

zacfoldor47d ago

Well, Im just glad they aren’t porting their best exclusives to PC to make a quick buck, negating the need to actually buy the console. Come to think of it, I haven’t seen any articles about that Jim Ryan interview on here.

Neonridr47d ago

do you play a game because it's fun? Or because it's "next gen" (whatever the heck that is supposed to mean)?

Father__Merrin47d ago (Edited 47d ago )

@zacfolder although I don't support Nintendo you are right though they are a proper console company that doesn't devalue themselfs, unlike what Sony is just starting to do

DJStotty47d ago

The sales will include the Switch Lite, which is the essential replacement handheld of the 3DS.

Everyone i seem to speak to, seems to want the switch. Nintendo have always done well console/handheld wise. They had a blip with the WiiU, but other than that they generally sell. Each iteration averages around 70-90 million at least.

waverider47d ago

Right on point. Those are combined sales of the switch and the portable version. In other Word not the same. I really dont understand why they are doing this. The lite version. Is a portable not home console.

Sirk7x46d ago

Those games are still available to play though, and the library is still growing. I wouldn't recommend it as the only console to own, but any person who loves gaming is missing out on great games without a Switch.

Nintendo smashing it simple. Bowsers Fury selling well, zelda will and Pokemon Snap. Momster Hunter Rise will sell well too

diepdiep47d ago

Monster Hunter Rise will sell big time in Japan, alone.
