In spite of Nintendo missing their target, the Switch’s sales performance still remains impressive.

Nintendo may have admitted that they won’t be meeting their ridiculous target of shipping 20 million units of the Nintendo Switch for the financial year, but it seems like the Switch is still outpacing just about every major home console in history.

According to a graph shared by Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad on Twitter, it seems that, launch aligned, the Nintendo Switch is currently outpacing the PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4, and Xbox 360. It, in fact, seems to be currently more or less in line with the Wii, though given the Wii’s sales explosion in its third year, it is unlikely that the Switch manages to keep pace with it going forward.

On the whole, this serves to demonstrate that the console’s sales performance is nothing to scoff at, and that, had Nintendo actually met their target, the Switch may well have been the fastest selling console in history. Right now, with 32.27 million units sold in under two years, it’s already one of the fastest selling consoles ever (certainly in the US).
