While Nintendo has actually never really gotten on the verge of financial mess up (regardless of the beloved Nintendo is Doomed memes), it’s not tough to check out the company’s previous residence console, the Wii U, and also its handheld, the 3DS, and also not see quite a decline. The Wii U was an outright flop, and while the 3DS sold well, it was sharp decrease from the DS. Nintendo chose instead to develop a hybrid in the Change, as well as well, it appears to have actually worked out.
As was reported previously today, the NPD confirmed that the Switch was the best marketing hardware of September 2020 in the United States. Going all the way back, the Switch over has actually been the number 1 hardware given that December of 2018, making that 22 consecutive months. That damages the previous record of the Xbox 360, which was # 1 equipment for 21 months from August 2011 to April 2013 (many thanks to NintendoEverything for those statistics).
It’s extremely likely the Switch will additionally take the # 1 place in October as well, and some analysts have actually even anticipated that Switch over might still be on top on the vacation seasons due to stock problems with the launch PS5 and also Xbox Collection gaming consoles. That implies it’s within the world of possibility we can see a continued streak of 24-25+ months with the Change at # 1 in the United States.
