Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo Switch outsold the original Xbox

According to VGChartz's numbers, the Switch (already) outsold the original Xbox.

 

Does anyone know how fast the PS4 and the Xbox One outsold it too ?

 

 

Next step: the N64.

Look, we gotta put a cap on when celebrate _____ out selling _____.

The only real Nintendo console that didn't outsell the Xbox was the Wii U, it was a disaster. Kudos to the Switch, it will likely sell a 100 million units or whatever.

Did you just suggest that the Gamecube was not a real Nintendo console?

It's fine to celebrate milestones. Really. We celebrated them even for failures like WiiU and Vita. Only fewer of them.

On topic: Congrats Switch for another step.

Oh yeah, I forgot but it was pretty close. It failed because it didn't have a 2D Mario.

Remember those people who think the Switch will sell as much as the Wii U?

Those platforms did so bad we celebrated every time they passed a million.

Frankly, I own all of these failed platforms as well. I have a OG Xbox, Gamecube, Vita, and Wii U sitting around. But not every milestone matters.

Doing some math using VGC numbers and wikipedia for the original Xbox selling 24m. It took 154 weeks for the XBox One  and 84 weeks for the PS4 to surpass original Xbox sales. Congrats on NSW for doing this achievement in 90 weeks.
