Switch was surely a hit in France. Does anyone know if any past Nintendo consoles games have so constantly topped the France software charts like this?
I am french, but I have no clue about your question. I had every Nintendo almost...Most of my friends too.
But I can tell you that where I live now in Hungary, Nintendo almost doesn't exist and has almost no past. Out of Budapest and out of Chrismass period, you can not find a Switch anywhere in shops. It is only PS4 and XBOXONE. Last time I saw a Switch, the cost was 350€, and the XBOXONEX here cost more than 550€ (which is the medium salary of the country).
