Forums - Sales Discussion - Switch estimated to have sold over 50,000 units at launch in China

"Xbox One Sells 100,000 Units During Chinese Launch Week" Xbox One sold twice as many at launch.

Yeah these Switch launch numbers aren't impressive, which makes sense as in China the Switch isn't an impressive product.

Perhaps the difference was people in China could already buy the Switch at the grey market (maybe since its worlwide launch). While from the article Xbox One officially launched in China only after 1 year since its worlwide launch. 



Pocky Lover Boy!

This was shipped not sold.

XB1 has sold barely over 70,000 in 7 months, and PS4 has outsold it in one month.

Switch is performing way better than last gen consoles.

interesting facts about population:

1987 => 5 billion
1999 => 6 billion
2012 => 7 billion
2019 => 7.7 billion (current)

Interesting to see how much the population has increased in my lifetime. I was born in 1988, so the world has recently hit 5 billion people when I was spawned.

This is one of those games where the playerbase just keeps increasing.

I said China doesn't care about console one year ago and somebody wasn't happy about that. Seems I was right.

*Psst* The grey market existed long before that

But yeah, officially numbers are lukewarm at best. Will grow just like the line up,lol.

Yes and probably do PS4 numbers in China. Not that impressive.

How much has the PS4 sold in china?

1.5m

That was as of August 2018. So 3 years and 4-5 months was 1.5m. Now it is 4 years and 9 months since launch, so who knows what it is now.
