Forums - Sales Discussion - Nintendo Switch: best 2nd quarter ever!

The records for a July - August - September quarter:

2020 NSW 6,850,000
2008 NDS 6,790,000
2007 NDS 6,370,000
2009 NDS 5,730,000
2006 NDS 5,550,000

The Wii never went over 5 million during a Q2.
Q2 record for the PS4: 4.2 million in 2017, no more.

Impressive.

Literally insane considering they had backlash during that period for releasing NO INFORMATION and very little software.



You mean 3rd quarter? But yes, it is absolutely insane how much the Switch selling with so little new software from Nintendo. Have a feeling covid had something to do with increases sales.....god bless Animal Crossing: New Horizons lol



Wow! The record! Amazing. Hopefully they have enough supply to have a stellar holiday quarter as well.

Even as that time admitedly sucked, keyboard warriors of the internet have little power as to the sales results for any sofatware and hardware really.

Its 2nd quarter when referring to fiscal year which makes sense in this context.

Financial year starts in April, so second quarter for the financial year.

Yeah, it's very impressive



Here's some more quarterly data.

Quarterly Breakdown by Fiscal Year (NDS / Wii / PS4 / NSW)

NDS peaked in FY4. Wii in FY2.  PS4 in FY3.

NSW on pace to peak in Y4 (probably in just three quarters, it only needs 9M).  IMO it has a shot at a higher peak again in 2021, but that remains to be seen. 

100M will come and go at this point, its trajectory is clearly aiming way higher now.  This current year should be ~30M and next year should be about the same (+/- 5%).  I think its sitting at 115-120M by the end of FY5 (March 2022), so it should go well past that range as well.

*Sony and Nintendo Fiscal Year's run from Apr - Mar.  So quarters fit in that framework.

*Year 0 is launch Fiscal Year (Nov-Mar for NDS/Wii/PS4, Mar for NSW)



Not even one PlayStation
