Forums - Sales Discussion - The Switch has reached one million units sold in France

Congratz to Big N, they deserves the sucess.

Over the last year, Nintendo of France General Manager Philippe Lavoué revealed that the Switch had sold over 900,000 units in France in 2017. He also said that he expected that number to rise to one million by the end of February.

It turns out that his expectations were right on the money – Lavoué recently spoke with French newspaper Le Figaro and revealed that the Switch has indeed broken through the one million barrier in France alone as of last week.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

If that's correct, that would mean around 910k end of the year. The article mentions 460k sold in November and December alone, so 450k sold March through October. And there where over 110k for the launch as  broke the Record of the Wii back then iirc.

In other words, Switch didn't only have one hell of a holiday season there, but sales are also up compared to before the holiday season

Edit: It also means Switch is overtracked in France before November, as it should be at 450k but it's at 630k the last week of October.

In it's opener, it says "Le Million pour la Nintendo Switch", which means A Million (sales) for the Nintendo Switch

Comparing with the post above yours, it looks like not only it was faster than in the PS4's case, but the latter also needed almost it's full second holiday season to reach it.

Don't understand why people keep aligning a systems November launch year as an additional holiday period.  The PS4 launched November 29th (late November)  in Europe and could only sell what they had available because it was a launch.  The Switch had the ability to queue enough stock for their first holiday, that's a vast difference.

 

But a congrats is in order.
