Wii was 12 million in Japan. So Switch is going to shatter that number.

Man, Switch has been selling like crazy. With the addition of Switch Lite I can see it reaching 3DS numbers or even more, especially if Nintendo doesn't release another dedicated handheld.



Well last week on Famitsu Switch have somewhere around 9.7mil LT. It couldnt have sold 300k in this coming weekly sales. So it should be shipped.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

doomed.

Nintendo will become third party



Around the Network

Sold through number since Nintendo already shipped 10m of Switch in Japan last September.



curl, you've repeatedly posted in the threads that allow you to verify whether the number is shipped or sold. Famitsu has Switch at 9.67m sell-through as of last week, Nintendo's financial report puts Switch at 10.00m shipped in Japan.

But I'd say your laziness should be forgiven because you made a thread for this important milestone that probably nobody else would have made. It evens out.

EDIT: A correction is in order. After using the Google translation tool for Nintendo's announcement, the 10m figure is sell-through as of November 3rd, according to Nintendo's own investigation as the translation tool labels it. Could be that Media Create has Switch notably higher than Famitsu, or Nintendo has also other means for sales tracking in Japan.

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

I do wonder if the Switch is going to reach anything close to 3DS numbers in Japan, now that it has a fully handheld model in the market.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Pokemon and Animal Crossing will make sure of it.

Shouldn't be a problem with the way the PS market has eroded and Sony not being expected to make any moves to improve things. Switch is bound to have much better first and third party support throughout its life in Japan, so the only factor (price) that makes it track behind the 3DS launch-aligned is merely a matter of time. Eventual price cuts are a given, so over time Switch will close the gap to the 3DS.
