Nintendo Switch Debuts In France With 105,000 Units Sold, Is The Best Launch For Any Console Ever

That's amazing.

Posted By | On 07th, Mar. 2017

At this point, it’s well established that the Nintendo Switch seems to have done well everywhere– that apparently includes France too, which is a part of Europe, a territory that Nintendo has been historically weak in. In France, the Switch sold 105,000 units over its launch weekend- this is the best launch Nintendo has ever had in France ever, exceeding even the Wii’s, which sold 95,000 in its debut weekend.

That’s not all, either- apparently, this is the best console launch, from any console manufacturer, in France, ever. That means out of all Sega, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo systems sold, the Switch has managed to sell the highest over its launch weekend.

Sales were certainly driven by interest in the system’s core concept, its great marketing, and the stupendous The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild– it remains to be seen whether or not Nintendo can continue maintaining this level of success, but for now, they’re certainly off to a great start.
