This is the same person who deemed the PS4 Pro a failure. His perspective on sales tend to be very questionable.

Ps4 pro could be considered a failure, depending on how you look at it. 

everything could be considered a failure depending on how you look at it.

Call me crazy but I was expecting this nintendo number to be more. I pegged it to be selling at around 350k-400k/month since its launch in the US.

That was at the end of August. Apparently, the Switch sold 315k in September, plus or minus a few thousand.

Was it? I thought that statement was made for September NPD?

It was. http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20171019005513/en

In that case, the Switch in October should be 450k to 550k, depending on how far past 2mil it was.

Thanks for this link. I'm going to update the link and mention that the 2m figure is as of the end of September.

Woah. Does that mean it sold 600k in October?

It's possible. It largely depends on how much over 2m and 2.6m Nintendo meant.

This is getting interesting! 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

This is huge. This might just be a 20 million seller.

600k sales for Switch in October is also incredibly massive.

Daaaammmnn.

Where's Colin Moriarty now?

Moriarty clearly fails to understand that the Switch was A) launched in March rather than in Q4 like nearly every other console and thus didn't benefit from holiday season sales to keep it running strong, and B) has been dealing with supply constraint. But even then, it's still doing remarkably well. Compared to the 3DS, which was also a March launch, the Switch is far outstripping it in sales, despite the higher price and supply constraints. By the end of the October 2011 sales period, the 3DS was just short of 1.7 million units sold in the U.S., compared to over 2.6M for the Switch.

Comparing to other systems, both handhelds and home consoles, the Switch has a strong launch month relative to everything else released since 1995:


And looking at post-launch sales, it ain't doing too shabby, either. Its Q2 sales were 661.5k, only 3.5k short of what the PS4 did in Q2 2014, and it ranks fifth overall for first Q2 performances for home consoles. In Q3, it sold about 752k, give or take a few thousand; the only home consoles to sell more than that their first full Q3 were the PS2, PS4, and Wii.

Once you take into account what time of year it launched and the fact that it's supply-constrained, it's clear that the Switch's sales are pretty damn good. And right now it has nowhere to go but up.
