    the first year Switch sold 15 Million
    in the second year they wonna ad 20 Million more, but they dident reach the 15 Million from the first year.
    so it could change with the huge sales on x-mas.
    i dont have the numbers.
    i just see how it sell in japan and thats awesome. but japan is the mobile marked… europe not.
    so im realy wondering how the sales are worldwide

  3. Bandai and SEGA try to keep (Sony) PlayStation alive, but Nintendo is unstoppable today. How can they sell 300.000 console per week to a 130 million people population? Do all japs like videogames? Where are the good old grannies? ^^
    They did good buy focalizing their workforce on just one console. That’s Nintendo future (and in the smartphone platform, but better not waste time there with first party and license IP to third parties, they already aren’t unable to deploy some new game per month on the Switch, luckily the winter lineup is up to the task).
