The Nintendo Switch has already proven to be more popular than the legendary Wii in Japan according to the latest Famitsu figures. The Wii managed lifetime sales of 12.75 million while the Nintendo Switch has now achieved a total of 12,801,222 sales. This means that Nintendo Switch has now outsold the Wii’s lifetime sales in just three years.
Dang I knew this would happen, but I didn’t think it’ll be this quick, wish I could go back in time when the switch was first introduce and people thought the system was dead on arrival, doom, and would never reach the sales of the wii.
I had my doubts. So that’s why they are not concerned about the PS5 and series X.
This explains why Nintendo wasnt concerned about the Switch and why they did not add a Switch Pro. This makes perfect sense now.
Next three targets are GBA, Super FamiCom and then the original Playstation.
Dang, I remember the Wii craze when almost everyone had it or was talking about it.
Well, it’s the switch craze now
I never thought I see the light of day when it surpass its lifetime sales.
Especially when the Wii U was at an all time low.
Well, the Wii U was a good platform to me at least but, its not enough third party support and the sales was a bit down under in 2015.
Wait, are these numbers just for Japan? World wide the Wii has sold just over 100 million units, I’d be stunned if Switch already did that.
Just Japan. I looked it up and it’s sold 50 million so far as of early Feb, but people stuck in quarantine is helping sales. Right now it’s at $550 due to the demand.
While this is impressive, this is in Japan only as far as lifetime sales. Maybe next year folks…
Beyond impressive. It’ll be a struggle to hit portable numbers in Japan, though.
