Nintendo announced an update to the number of Switch units shipped worldwide since the console's release.
That’s insane. I still remember people saying it won’t sell past 30 million, and yet it’s still going. I can see this surpassing both the Wii and the PS4.
Spectacular rebound after the abysmal WiiU sales
Yeah going by the release dates with sales, it will surpass it and switch as few more year and maybe more to sell more units. Unless something happens that hinders it which i doubt.
Ah the fear of change brigade 😅🤷🏻♂️ ✌🏻🤣
But you’re comparing handheld sales with home console sales.
Switch is less than 32 million units away from outselling PS4 at this point and it hasn’t shown any sign of slowing down yet
They have talked about a successor or a pro edition who knows what will happen some people will absolutely upgrade to a pro so extra numbers there.
Forget the new model, the standard model hasn’t even had a price cut yet Switch could very well be the first system to cross the 100 million mark without a price cut prior
The lockdown has been a gold mine for Nintendo and it won't slow down. This is truly the children's choice of toy console like the wii was and tbh as long as you stick to switch specific titles it's a worthwhile buy as a handheld. I do wish they release a cheaper docked only console it would do pretty good
Toy console? Switch is for everyone not just kids. I’ll be picking up a Switch Pro/2 when they release. Can’t wait. Love me some Nintendo games.
Sorry but it's not just a kid's console. Yes I can imagine majority of switch owners are kids/teens. But a lot of adults have a switch. I am 31 and own a switch. However, It's simply just a Pokémon console for me. I have played Mario Kart and still own it. Breath of the wild and I'll get monster hunter at one point. But that's pretty much it for me. I have never been a fan of the majority of Nintendo IP. Plus I don't buy 3rd party titles on switch.
35 and bought Day1. Some people just like to attempt to appear more mature than they are by writing things off as oh that’s for kids whilst never trying them out and playing fortnite religiously 😑🤣✌🏻 These kids games are good with me. Timeless classics gaming gold and let’s face it top 100 games of all time are generally riddled with Nintendo and they take up a fair old Chuck of the list too. They deserve all the success always happy to try something new and original rather than same old same old. Always got time for that.
Nintendo has been releasing the most graphic games as long as the switch can handle the load. Definitely not cbilds console. Its an everyone console
Yeah the kids love a bit of Bayonetta 2. Sounds like only one kid here and I’ll let you try figure it out, pro tip use a mirror 😑🤣 well forget doom mortal kombat the Resi series. Sure Nintendo 1st party games are generally built for kids or to visually appeal to them but the games themselves are built for all and they have a level of excellence to make a game enjoyable for 4 year olds and 40 year olds and beyond. Like a good episode of the Simpsons kids don’t understand half the jokes. As for needed a docked only console what is the point of that literally what. Just leave it in the dock if it’s that upsetting sellotape it in there or something 🤦🏻♂️🤷 🏻♂️🥴🤣
Well I'm an adult, and I play Switch all the time. I also play PS5. Switch and PS5 are choices. My brother and mother are also adults, and play the Switch constantly. I think you are using old talking points against Nintendo from 2 gens ago. Just the JRPG library alone on the Switch is incredible. You think only kids play the Switch? LOL wrong. I understand everyone needs to marginalize the Switch because the sales success is just too unbelievable for words, and one may feel inadequate with their own console's sales, but update your talking points every few years, keep them current. Remember, Switch isn't competing with the other two consoles, right?
That’s the problem with most they so far behind they can’t keep up with Nintendo’s excellence 🤷🏻♂️🤣 ✌🏻 Some people are just happy they got a share button now 😑🥴🤣
I bought a Switch Lite for games like Doom, Wolfenstein, BioShock, The Outer Worlds,, Resident Evil and so forth, tbh. I also have a PS3 and PS4 but it's fun playing those games on the Switch as well.
Yeah the kids love them Ones 🥴✌🏻😜
This will likely surpass PS4, Sony could learn so much from Nintendo. They have a treasure trove of great IP but they don't give it the same care that Nintendo does with theirs.
What would you like to see sony do with their IP that they're not and nintendo is doing
No thankyou. Sony should stick with their own thing and they're successful at that. Let Nintendo so their own thing
Should say that about xbox not sony
If Sony thought about being like Nintendo I wouldn't support the PS platform. Sony PS is doing fine with what they do when it comes to games.
WTF? Learn from Nintendo? Learn what? The art of milking age old IPs to death?
The Last of Us Remake says hi. The game is what 10 years old and was already remastered. Lmao
So they're expecting to move over 25mil units. Is the switch pro releasing? Nintendo denies while reports say it coming
The Switch is still selling strong soon to hit 100 million. I still have no intention to buy one but congrats to Nintendo.
I love the switch portability factor. I just wish it had more mature games to play
Try Hades. GotY last year, imo.
The very reason I haven't bought one.
This is why Nintendo is in no rush to release a new console.
Thankfully it only came out 4 years ago 🤣✌🏻 Sure it’ll be replaced before long tho. They’ll clear that 100 million again and I’m pretty certain most things will start moving to Switch 2.0. We’ll prob get BOTW2 and the Pokemon games and that’ll be Switch retired?! Or replaced with a newer bigger better (hopefully next gen version) 🤞🏻😍 28588;🏻😜㊁ 9;✌🏻
28.8 million in one year is crazy. They got at least half the sales Xbox managed all last gen in less than a year with a console that on launch was 3-4 years outdated with its inferior tech. I know which I bought and kept 🤷🏻♂️🤓 ✌🏻🙌🏻 28540; incredible achievement. Think this is easily gonna be their most successful console. I’m glad as feels a bit dirty being Wii 😏🥴🤣 had some great games but an awful lot of 💩 much better it’s going to switch. Great little console.
I enjoy my Switch very much and I'm glad to see others enjoying the product. Hopefully this will mean continued support for many years to come, and reinvestment into game development, to keep those first party games and that 3rd party support coming. Especially from Japan. No price drop yet that I can tell, no mid-gen refresh yet. Also, I know that "Switch doesn't need a price drop" yep I agree, apparently it doesn't need one. Look at those SALES. Also Hades was my goty last year and I'm having a crazy fun time with Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury and then I'll play new Pokemon Snap and Returnal on PS5. Gaming has never been better. Switch delivered. There is nothing left for them to deliver but icing on the cake.
Glad Nintendo is back from the Wii U. I couldn't really get into the switch though I did play Odyssey.
You know your having a good year when you twice bump up your projections and still sell more than you expected. 28 million in a year is DS like sales.
Glad to see Nintendo thriving again. Loving both my Switch and PS5.
Yeah that’ll do me for a few years easy. Both great systems.
Looks like the Switch will go on to because me one of the top selling handhelds of all time. Handheld as it’s not a home console.
