Sep & 2020 Hardware

And Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console. Overall, 146,000 consoles were sold during September in the UK, according to GfK. That means, so far this year, 1.3 million games machines have been sold in the UK. That's a rise of 34.2% over the same period in 2019. Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch are all seeing growth year-to-date, with Switch sales in particular up 90% compared with the same period in 2019.



Around the Network

SSwitch sold 700.000 units in 2017

so far, 1.3 million consoles have been sold in UK in 2020. it's likely Switch is close to 50% of marketshare, which would mean 650K withouth the last quarter. (in USA Switch had a little less than 60% marketshare, but UK is a worse market for Nintendo)

idk how much Switch sold in 2018 and 2019, but you can clearly see the growth from the first year



2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

Hiska's chart (CESA data) suggests:

2017: 700K

2018: 830K

2019: 950K

So looks like target pace for this year is >1.5M.

Also, repeat from what I posted on Era:

--

Based on Nintendo's own data, NSW in calendar 2019 sold 5.09M in Europe markets. Highest numbers we've had reported for Europe are the following:

NDS 08 11.2M​
NDS 09 ~9.0M​
Wii 08 8.4M​
Wii 09 ~6.0M​


NSW 2020 looks like it could cross 4M from just UK and France alone (expecting 1.5M UK and 2.5M France). So we're going to get a run at 10M IMO.

NSW 2020 looks to be in line with 08/09 NDS in US and Europe and ahead of 08/09 NDS in JP. I think there's a real solid chance we clear 30M globally this CY and FY.

Next year with better supply and Pro model is going to be gangbusters.
