Switch has finally debuted in China, and it seems to be off to a decent start. Niko Partners estimates that the system sold over 50,000 units on release date.
JD.com, an online retailer, said Switch sold through more than 20,000 units via its website. 47 percent of buyers were aged between 16-25. TMall also sold through 10,000 units by 10 AM and saw 75 percent of its buyers under the age of 30.
Niko Partners believes that Switch sales will increase to 100,000 units by the end of 2019. It could surpass the PS4 as China’s leading console by 2022 when accounting for both legal and grey market sales.
