Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo Switch passes 19 Million Units Sold

http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2018/07/nintendo_has_sold_19_67_million_switch_consoles_to_date

"Nintendo has announced its financial results for the first quarter of the current fiscal year, which covers the period from April through to June 2018. In the report, the company has given sales-to-date figures for its current hardware, as well as data specific to the quarter.

As you might imagine, Switch is doing incredibly well, with 19.67 million units sold since launch early last year. In terms of software, 86.93 Switch games have been sold since day one.

During the first quarter of this financial year, games like Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (1.40 million units), Mario Tennis Aces (1.38 million units) and Nintendo Labo (1.39 million units for both packs) performed well. 

Switch hardware sales hit 1.88 million units for this quarter (a 4.4 percent drop on a year-on-year basis), while Switch software hit 17.96 million units (a 120.8 percent increase year-on-year)."

 

So I guess vgchartz had better update their numbers. I'm not sure if July sales are included in Nintendolife's report, but if they aren't then that means Switch has definitely sold over 20 million units.

So 1.6m on shelves according to VGC? Sounds a bit high so it's probably undertracked a bit here.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Maybe just by a little. Nintendo stated that "Nintendo Switch, hardware sales in every region have been trending upwards since the video game expo, E3, was held in the US in June" yet VGChartz sort of shows Switch sales trending downwards for the weeks since E3.

1.3m on shelves/in transit. Seems fine to me, there's really no way to know for sure. No adjustments need to be made based on this information.

Pretty suspicious.

just bookmarking for the insanity



“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.

The drop isn't surprising, unless there is anything significant coming out this year aside from smash.

For the love of god, when will you understand that  quarterly financial results are ALWAYS SHIPPED, NOT SOLD.
