Those people who thinks Switch sold 2.5mil; lol!

We're down to reality it seems, although the Switch did short of the expected 2M, there's nothing bad considering it did have a notable increase of a fifth of it's last year sales, which also surpassed both the Xbone and PS4 combined !

How could Pokemon push more hardware when it sold more in December?

If you’re talking YOY increases that only because last November there were no Black Friday deals for the switch. 

 

Smash is a juggernaut. Let’s Go is a wet paper towel.

Well Switch did had MK8D bundle for $299 in November for Black Friday.

According to the insiders of resetera, the switch was supposed to be 2.5 millions :/

So I would have been lied to !



does anybody know if they are gonna say software numbers for december too??



Wouldn't Switch's December result be the highest December for any hardware this generation (Switch/PS4/Xbox One)? Lower than some were expecting (and lower than a number of leaks/predictions suggested), but still a very strong quarter for Nintendo overall. Be interesting to see where there hardware shipments come in at the end of the month - and whether or not they stick to the 20 million target or revise it down to 18.5 - 19 million.



Wow, late to the party it seems i am. In the end it seems that Nov indeed stole sales from December. I expected 2'1-2'3M so i overstimated Switch sales like everyone else....PS4 and XBO did as expected.

In the end, Switch went from 4'9M in 2017 to 5'6M in 2018 in USA, a 14% growth. Way less than i expected. So we have 14% growth in USA, 20% in UK, 24% in France and something more than 50% in Portugal...
