No other company in the history of the gaming industry has accomplished this.

Much like Sony, who recently intimated that they have crossed 500 million units of hardware sold, it seems like Nintendo have hit their own milestone quietly. Gamnesia is reporting that as per Nintendo’s last financial report, the company hit 727.67 million units of hardware sold, ever- of which 300.11 million were home consoles (this milestone being the one Nintendo had hit as of June 30, 2018).

It’s a tremendous feat- no other company in the history of the industry has done this. Nintendo’s numerical breakdowns reveal some interesting statistics, collated on ResetEra– for instance, two thirds of their hardware sales come from handhelds (one third of that third is the Nintendo DS!). No wonder Nintendo went in the direction they did with the Switch. Meanwhile, the dismally selling Wii U is indeed the lowest selling bit of hardware Nintendo has produced.

These numbers don’t account for Virtual Boy, NES Classic, SNES Classic, Game and Watch, and Color-TV Game- so the final tally is even higher (Game and Watch alone sold about 40 million). Still, it’s an impressive feat by Nintendo- hopefully the Switch elevates them to even newer heights.
