Forums - Sales Discussion - Nintendo Switch has become the fastest selling video game system of all time in the US

Do we know how much Switch sold in the US by the beginning of December? We can use that information to calculate the December sales in the US. The charts unfortunately only show regional data in the US up to November 18.

Based on the yearly USA numbers for hardware, which I believe goes up to the most recent hardware update for 02 Dec, the Switch had 3,738,819 units sold. So, assuming the 4.8 million is sold through, over 1.1 million Switches were sold in Dec.

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. The site can be a bit confusing as far as obtaining exact numbers for specific dates.

Edit: Looks like someone used NPD numbers, so I'd take their word for it over VGchartz

That means Zelda will sell another 580k units in the us till the end of december. Atleast if we assume the numbers from the 11 november are correct.



Big if true!

Even outperforming the wii :o

Wow, that's nuts. I wonder what'll be the excuse this time...switch isn't a casual gamer's system.

If we conclude from the NPD data for November, it would put switch sales in December at around 1.4 million.

 

Edit: we didn't get NPD for switch, but could conclude from reports on PS4 numbers and switch selling half.

Thank you for the information.

This one will be fun to read latter.



Congrats to Nintendo! Iwata would be Proud.
