  • Holiday Wish Guide Gifts for Nintendo Fans from Budding Gamers to Experienced Players

The Nintendo Switch was unleashed to the masses back in March. This will inevitably lead to more sales, which could see the Nintendo Switch surpassing the PS4 in its first financial year. Why this time? Because Nintendo does have the habit of creating false demand by providing low stock.

The $300 Switch - a first-of-its-kind hybrid system that allows users to play on their TVs as well as on-the-go - was released in March and has posted sales totals equal to other first-gen consoles like PlayStation 4 and the Wii. In fact, after 270 days on the market, Sony announced that they had sold 10 million consoles. Well, there are a variety of reasons that come together to prove that the Switch is a great console.

For 2018, Nintendo Switch games on tap include Nintendo-published titles like "Kirby Star Allies", "Bayonetta", "Bayonetta 2" and a new game in the Yoshi franchise.

Firstly, the game has seen a regular and solid line of top titles released. That is in addition to the first party lineup that has new and familiar franchises from Snipperclips and ARMS to Mario Kart, Splatoon, Mario, Zelda and more. If the Switch keeps up this pace, it'll eventually become the best-selling Nintendo console ever. Publishers who havent put a lot of their games on Nintendo platforms in the past are even in on the action such as Bethesda and Rockstar. Things are showing no signs of slowing down.

Fourthly, the timing for the release was ideal.

It's a major return to form for Nintendo, a company that has traditionally held a leadership position in the game industry.

Fifthly, and finally, the price.

According to Game, its United Kingdom and Spanish stores saw an attachment rate of three games to every Switch sold, which is just slightly below what the Wii saw in the same period.

The report claims that United States sales have not yet been disclosed by the company, but it is claimed that at least more than 2.6 million units were sold in the US. I actually am happy about that. If not, do you plan on picking one up now that it is a success and third parties are rushing to put their games on it? Comment below, let us know.
