Nintendo expects to have shipped 17.76 million Switch units by March 3rd 2018, on the console-handheld-hybrid's 1st birthday. [prebreak]1[/prebreak]

Currently, the global Switch hardware sales sit at 14.86 million units, with software sales at 52.57 million units.

"For the nine months ended December 31, 2017, the Nintendo Switch hardware sold well following the launch and sales volume rose substantially during the holiday season. For the Nintendo Switch software, SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY was released in October and has been a big hit, with global sales reaching 9.07 million units. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, released in April, has sold 7.33 million units, and Splatoon 2, released in July, has sold 4.91 million units, bringing to 8 the total number of million-seller titles for this fiscal year including the titles of other software publishers. The result is that hardware sales during this period totalled 12.13 million units, and software sales volume totalled 47.10 million units."

Very impressive for such a short time on the market, but can Nintendo really shift another 3 million units in just 2 months?

basically people who bought a console with quantities of AAA games less than ur hand fingers and about half of them are pillaged titles from diseased WIIU...

Nintendo players are weird...
I have 5 AAA games and only one of them is from the WiiU (Zelda), the other 15 games, yeah, I have Mario Kart 8 from the WiiU. I don't understand what you're talking about...

I meant people bought a console knowing that there aren't much EXCLUSIVE games to play with.

Impressive number. And to think I predicted less than 10 million sales in its lifetime. :shy:

That's according to the logic that people buy consoles based on the exclusives. That logic works when the exclusives are the main differentiating factor. However, I think that a large chunk of people bought a switch because it's both a handheld and a console.

...and there's of course the chunk that buy a console for the nintendo exclusives. An argument like "there aren't much exclusive games" only matters if you actually want to PLAY those exclusives. ;)

Nintendo handhelds have always been a hit in Japan. The Switch is no difference.

Some can say that the Switch is a hybrid, but I consider it a full-handheld with enhancements for home gaming.

So few people bought the Wii U that the ports might as well be exclusive.
Besides, between Mario, Zelda, Xenoblade and Splatoon, and everything that's on the eShop worth buying, there's enough there to keep you busy for months, it's not like people are really hurting for more games right now.

I'm sure the Switch would sell a shit ton of units, but I'm also pretty sure that it won't surpass the PS2.
it's actually outpacing the ps2 so far iirc

A good majority bought the PS2 because it was a cheap DVD player. It had great games, yes. The biggest selling point was the DVD capabilities though.

Don't forget "Don't knock twice" for a horror game, it was boring a shit.

Wow stupid post. Alot of people who bought the switch skipped on the wiiu. Also the switch has a lot more exclusive AAA games that I'd rather play right now than on my PS4 or Xbox one.

Lol
The pure fact that the switch has outsold the wiiu proves that a lot of people who now have a switch, didn't have a wiiu

I thought that would have been obvious to understand. But it's fine..people like you need things spelled out and simplified

well, sales kinda prove it, the switch has already outsold the wii u's entire life time sales already in under a year and so far the switch re releases have been outselling there wii u counterparts
Lol
I thought that was obvious enough for anyone to figure out. Even a 6 year old.
