Gah, beaten to the punch, was about to post this haha

Will this have any significant effect on Switch's sales potential or will China sales likely be too small to make much of a difference?



It's different enough from pc and mobile gaming to carve out part of the market there.

This could be big. It could also be nothing. Definitely something to keep an eye on. I'm intrigued. 😁

Gotta be quicker next time. ;)

I think there's a bigger chance at success than failure and that it has a stronger chance than the PS4 and Xbox One when they launched in China. As ironmanDX stated, it's different enough from PC and mobile to make its own piece of the market, the Switch is a good bridge/midway point of the two. You never know for sure about these things, because it's China. But as of now, if any one of the Big Three is in a prime position to break out and find an audience there, it's Nintendo. Another big thing that Nintendo has in their favor is their partnership with Tencent to release the system in China.

LET'S FACE THIS FACT : The Switch is the last physical video game system of the history who has a chance to beat PS2's sales.

It should fall under the 'Rest of the World' category like it did with the Xbox One when it launched in China in late September 2014.

I know it's not the best indicator to go by but if Amazon China is any reflection of the gaming demographic in China then the Switch and its games are going to be massive there!

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

amazon china is a pretty poor source for anything China related tbqh.

There are much bigger, vastly more popular, eCommerce stores.

I thought this release was going to take a while longer.
They have been working towards it for a while but getting into the chinese market is hard.

Well they managed to release it before christmas and New Years.
Seems like preorders are already going well.

And look at those ads :D
