Nintendo Switch Record Breaking Sales Have Put Switch Price Hikes and Shortage Fears to Rest

Nintendo Switch Sales are booming globally and because of that, all the speculations about Price Hikes and a shortage of games lists are put to rest. This might result in a lower price of the console and more games into Nintendo Switch lists because of the emerging demands.

The console’s sales are already on a fast route and these are Nintendo’s record sales in Americas and rest of the world for the very first time. Because of the console’s popularity and a smashing games list, more and more people are buying the device. So this is possible that Nintendo will lower the price of the console.

The investors previously feared that the higher prices and a very little games list will affect the sales, but so far these haven’t been any effect and the console is still earning big. It was also confirmed by Nintendo that Nintendo Switch sales in Europe and America have surpassed the Wii. That’s a very good sign for all the hardcore Nintendo Switch fans.

The New York Times states that Nintendo America President, Reggie Fils-Aime has confirmed that Nintendo Switch’s Friday and Saturday sales have exceeded and the sales are at height of the marks they have ever been before.

Nintendo UK also confirms that Nintendo Switch has sold more units than any of the Nintendo consoles ever and in the first week of its launch, the sales are more than the Wii. Zelda: Breath of the Wild is also said to be the first ever high grossing exclusive titles on any of the Nintendo’s consoles. This clearly means that Nintendo Switch has already beaten down the Wii Sports.

Nintendo Australia and New Zealand also confirms that the sales of Nintendo Switch units are record breaking high. Wii sold over a 100 Million units after its launch in 2006 till now. But, Nintendo has sold over 6 Million units in the very first week of its launch.

There is absolutely no clue about the Nintendo Switch launch titles and how would they affect its sales. Nintendo is expected to reveal all the official data in April 2017.

The famous games analyst with IDC, Sam Reynolds talks about it in an interview to BBC. He quoted that “Nintendo’s fans like it best when it Innovates.” He further stated that “While a Solid launch for Nintendo is going to be in Japan, let’s see how it turns out in North America.”

It will be a long time before we know the full extent of Nintendo Switch Sales. However, With the massive amount of Pre-Orders, and the talks of over five million units sold this year, makes it near to the truth statement. We’ve yet to see how good was Nintendo Switch at the beginning and how good it still be doing in the global markets.
