Considering the competition there is in the gaming industry it is hard to believe that the Nintendo Switch has taken precedence over all other consoles in the market as the most sold console. With players like Sony and Microsoft also in the market with their own products, it creates an environment of immense competition, however, there are several factors which makes Nintendo’s Switch a business and gaming success. Current sales stats show a very encouraging and optimistic picture for Nintendo even though the comparisons made are a bit unfair in one way or the other.
As of June, Nintendo had sold around 20 million units since its launch that was approximately fifteen months ago. This is a very astounding number considering that the sales trends have experienced just one holiday season so far which is unbelievable. In comparison, the PS4 which is currently at around 74 million in terms of units sold had sold around 20.2 million consoles in about 16 months after its launch in which it experienced two holiday seasons as well. Keeping this in view, Nintendo has done really well and has a lot of potential sales coming its way.
Predictions And Expectations
Can the Nintendo Switch take over the PS4 as the most sold console? Well, there are interesting predictions regarding this. One important reason why people feel that Nintendo Switch is bound to eventually take over at some point is because the probability of having two PS4s in one house is highly unlikely while on the other hand there are reasons why families can think of buying more than one Switch.
A Success Already
This, among other reasons, is why people are betting on the Nintendo Switch to take over however there are some problems with such estimations. Nevertheless, Nintendo’s sales are increasing, and they should be satisfied considering the Switch has already done better than the Wii U and GameCube.
