A contrasting situation, what Nintendo managed to achieve with the Nintendo Switch when compared to the Nintendo Wii U era is indeed amazing. We speak from despair because a console that never sells well on the market regardless of the injection of exclusive content that many at its old age against a console with a hybrid concept that is not difficult to sell tens of millions of units each year, complete with popularity that shows no signs of decreasing. . Even for the Switch, it just reached another new milestone that’s no less impressive.
Nintendo has just announced that the Nintendo Switch’s total global sales have now surpassed 122 million units in its sixth year of existence. This made it the third best-selling console of all time, behind the Playstation 2 (155+ million units) and Nintendo DS (154 million units). One thing is for sure, this figure managed to make it surpass the position previously held by Game Boy (118 million units) and Playstation 4 (117 million units). Switch sales were also boosted by the popularity of Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, which has now hit 20 million copies in just 6 weeks of release.
The Nintendo Switch managed to break the 122 million unit mark sold.
Nintendo itself still hasn’t revealed its next hardware plans, whether it’s about the Switch iteration or the next generation of consoles. However, with several exclusive games still being stored, it’s not surprising to see sales figures for this unit skyrocketing in the future. Will he break the Playstation 2 figure later? Let’s wait.
