No, my point is, Nintendo would hold the record for handhelds already so they've got one of the records locked down. Either way, they hold a record there. If Switch is considered a home console too, then that would be two records in total.

I guess you don't understand PR spin. Nintendo held the record for best-selling Nintendo home console before Switch already, so Switch didn't add any new feather to Nintendo's cap in that regard.

If Switch were the best-selling Nintendo console overall, then the PR would have used that, because that sounds better than limiting a record to home consoles.

So you're saying that this record is only for Nintendo consoles?

yes, afaik we have data saying the PS4 sold 1.1m in 11month in Ger

and Nintendo handhelds (especially the GBA or 3DS, afaik DS didn't start too hot) might have done better aswell

I see. Well, in the case of handhelds, Switch is a $300.00 hybrid, so it's not really fair to compare it to the cheap, dedicated handhelds of the past.

Here is the text from Nintendo's press release:

Seit 12 Monaten auf dem Markt, hat sie einen seit 10 Jahren bestehenden Verkaufsrekord gebrochen: Nintendo Switch, die erste tragbare TV-Konsole der Welt, ging seit dem 3. März 2017 mehr als 650.000 Mal über Deutschlands Ladentische. Das waren im gleichen Zeitraum noch mehr als bei der Wii, die den bisherigen Ein-Jahresrekord bei den Nintendo TV-Konsolen seit 2007 innehatte.

The highlighted portion means as much as "Wii held the record of the best-selling Nintendo home console through the first twelve months." That's the record Switch has broken.

It's similar wording to Nintendo of America's press release that called Switch the best-selling home gaming system in the USA through the first ten months. NoA's wording deliberately excluded Nintendo handhelds because the GBA is the overall record holder in the USA through the specified timeframe.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

ps4 sold 1 million in 11 months, thats with it having massive stock issues during its first launch holiday.



Nice, great to see as always

So Switch sold better than Wii.. ps1-4 and xbox in the first 10 month in the us?

But in germany it only sold better than any Nintendo homeconsole ever?
