It’s safe to say that the Nintendo Switch has been a huge success for Nintendo. Today news has emerged which reveals that Nintendo’s latest home console is the best-selling console of 2017 in Canada. The Nintendo Switch has sold 209,000 units and the PlayStation 4 has sold 205,000. As well as that, during September 2017, 73 per cent of console sales in Canada were Nintendo products. That means 115,000 units split between the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS and the SNES Mini.
“We were wondering what impact the Switch, which is a console you can play anywhere, would have on our portable gaming business. It turns out they are different markets,” he explains.
