    Nintendo has updated its sales figures with the information from the latest edition of its quarterly results, bringing Nintendo Switch hardware sales to a new milestone. In the published results, we can see that Nintendo's net sales were up 9% compared to last fiscal year, leading to a total of 1.308 billion yen (12.2 million USD). Both hardware and software sales exceeded the company's predictions, as Pokemon Sword and Shield and Animal Crossing: New Horizons broke records and performed incredibly well in terms of sales. Nintendo also cited COVID-19 as a reason for limited production of hardware in certain regions, though this apparently did not drastically affect the final two months of the fiscal year. Overall, Switch console sales were up 24% year over year, selling 21.03 million units, while software sales were up 42.3%, totalling 168.72 million.

    The Nintendo 3DS saw a dramatic decrease in sales, reaching only 0.69 million units--a 73% decrease. On the other hand, digital subscription sales and digital download sales were up a massive 71.8%. As of March 2020, the Nintendo Switch has sold a lifetime amount of 55.77 million systems worldwide, surpassing both the GameCube and Nintendo 64, combined.

    So the xbox one is now surpassed. Next is NES, then GBA and then Wii. Not sure how other consoles have fared.

    Yes, but the first two years of the Playstation had a lot of awful games with a lot of loading times.

    what? switch is getting sales because of the hybrid aspect, theres no way to make anything hybrid on ps5 power and tbh i dont see nintendo ever releaseing a regular home console ever again, the switch made them use the same studios to develop for the same platform, instead of the devided how they were.if they made a ps5 power console and sold it at like 500, it would flop hard, becuase nintendo audience inst the same as sony audience, so it would be way too risky and probably tanked big time.

    Sales are good but IMO the switch is still mediocre. Hacking the switch made it alot better than it is by lifting the restrictions that it had. I hope after this Covid-19 stuff is over Nintendo start pumping out more Original games instead of relying on ports or remasters. Most of the newer games that are coming on the switch this year are ports or remasters.

    I'm afraid if Nintendo doesn't bring anything new to the table in the upcoming years they are going to die out.

    Great job Nintendo. These kind of figures coming in always lead to little more freedom and tinkering in the R&D department.

    Fresh ideas incoming COVID allowing.

    Now they can develop another failed system without going bankrupt, nice. We need more Virtua Boy, Pokemon Mini and WiiU. I love Nintendo.

    that’s not true for one market power dictates what a company could do

    Switch could cater to a beef up home console running the same games why because it can fit within the marketing name , 1080p is the global standard for in home viewing 4K is still no where near the scratching surface with a divided user base Nintendo could take the risk with a Switch Home Console in hopes that people buy both Home and Lite
    This was the ultimate failure of the Wii U people thought the tablet worked independently so knowing Nintendo you live by the sword you die by the sword so they will probably take another swing at it.

    Also don’t expect a ton of next generation games because their budgets don’t match the risk of failure Slow trickles and why most games will be on both current and next generations (Slight enhancements like what the X does) and I expect more companies to start going after Switch customers :yayswitch:
