Nintendo Switch Sales In Japan Outpacing PS4 Sales

That is highly interesting.

Posted By | On 29th, Mar. 2017 Under News | Follow This Author @Pramath1605

The Nintendo Switch is a major success worldwide- so much so that it even seems to be outpacing PS4 sales, at least in Japan. As DualShockers are reporting based on the latest Media Create numbers, the Switch has sold in four weeks as many units as it took the PS4 seven weeks to sell.

As of today, the Switch’s total sales in Japan are over 500,000 units- it reached this milestone in only four weeks since its launch. In contrast, the PS4 took seven weeks to reach this number. A lot of this may ultimately come down to the simple fact that the Switch launched with a hell of a system seller- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, while the PS4 launched with, well, Knack.

Given that the Switch is maintaining its level of sales, and that it has a very major release in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe coming right up, it will be interesting to see how the system continues to perform in the coming weeks.

    • President of Bing and Google!, is telling individuals to start off “Work at home” practice, that Marketers have been doing for over 12 months now. This season only, I generated around $36k until now with no more than my laptop or computer and some extra time, even though i have a fulltime 9 to 5 job. Even everyone not used to this, can earn $50/per h undoubtedly and the gains can be even very high over a period of time… This is how i started >>

      Xbox Scorpio will likely dominate both the UK and North American markets because of superior exclusives and multiplats. Ps4 lacks exclusives (August – December) only one releasing is GT Sports. The Switch has more games than ps4 as well for the holidays that appeal to the Japanese.

    PS4 and Switch is going to dominate the industry.

    Shitbox? What’s that?

      We know you have mental issues. Sony’s single player trade ins aren’t exclusive anymore gimp. The peasantstation 4 now has no exclusives and will have the worst version of multiplats when Scorpio releases. Plus they have no horse in the PC market at all. If they have to write off $1 billion again like they did last quarter, they may be done.
