Launch was 2.76 million

Forecast to add 15.00 million to that by March 31st

Currently at 14.86 million

https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/finance/hard_soft/index.html

Basically 2.9 million more Nintendo Switch for January, February, and March

So 14.86 is SHIPPED and not SOLD, right?

I mean if it's "sold" then they would only have to sell 140.000 units to reach 15 million. So the real sales figures as of December 21 2017 is something around 12 millions units. Why can't figures be clear instead of confusing.

It's not confusing, it's very simple math. 2.76 of the 14.86M units sold before March 31, 2017, you just need to subtract those numbers to get the required amount to reach the 15M fiscal projection. The total will be 17.76M



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Their target of 15m would be for the current financial year only. Their LTD of 14.86m includes the 2.76m shipped in the previous financial year. So that leaves 2.9m to go to reach their target of 15m for the year, and 17.76 LTD.

Everyone scoffed when the rumors that Nintendo was readying production for 10-20M units on the NX. How the times have changed. Can the Switch dominate 2018 as well?

But it never dominated. As an European this america-centric perception is so alien to me.

EU isn't the only region that matters. Switch did extremely well in the US, and dominated in Japan.



First 4 quarter of sales(The Americas/Other/Japan)

3DS   15.03M(5.47/4.91/4.66)

So 17.76m shipped in 13 months. Didn't the ps4 sold 19m in it's first 13 months?

That's great for the Switch, considering its sales only include 3 quarters!



DON'T WIN ME CHIBI BUDDY DON'T WIN ME.

ANIMAL CROSSING NEW LEAF FRIEND CODE:- 5129 1175 1029. MESSAGE ME.
ANDY MURRAY:- GRAND SLAM WINNER!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

Easily the most impressive thing from this was that Odyssey has already topped 9 million. I knew it was selling well but that rather blew me away.

And Japan is? That was literally the only region it "dominated". So to say it "dominated" 2018 is hyperbole at best and an outright lie at worst...

Yeah, that is indeed incredibly impressive. I'd say it's much more impressive than Zelda's >100% attach rate at launch. The more consoles out there (and the more people with different tastes that are buying games) the harder it gets to have huge attach rates like that. 9m sales on a 14m install base is absolutely fantastic!
