Switch sells so well that we don't need alternative facts to make it look good. The thread title should be edited to reflect the content of the announcement. That is, "sets new record for Nintendo home consoles."
Pretty sure the Wii was the fastest selling during launch year over all genre of consoles WW. So by beating the Wii it is probably beating all the handhleds also.
Nope. The catch with the comparison threads you see on this site is that VGC tracking only covers seventh generation and onwards, but this excludes the PS2 and GBA which both got off to hot starts as well. For example, NPD data shows that the GBA has comfortably beaten the Wii (and everything else) through the first ten months, so applying worldwide sales to individual countries doesn't make much sense.
Since this is a sales thread about Germany, we do not only have to account for Nintendo handhelds, but also PlayStation home consoles as potential competitors for the title of best-selling console through the first twelve months.
