NPD - When time-aligned with other platforms, Switch has sold more consoles than any other in history

Want more concrete proof of how insanely well the Switch is is doing? This could be one of the most impressive records it has set yet. NPD analyst Mat Piscatella shares the details.

“On a time-aligned basis through the first 10 months on the market, Nintendo Switch has sold more consoles than any other platform in history.”

If the Switch keeps up a decent pace, we could see a new game industry king. I still cannot believe Nintendo went from such lows with the Wii U to such highs with the Switch.

I hope you are wrong too ahaha
For the sake of the gaming industry as a whole, lets hope Nintendo will always be a hardware creator. Who else is going to make something like Labo? Sure its not the next Smash or GTA but at least these experiments pushes gaming into exciting new areas for everyone.

Such high sales in such short time gives Nintendo a sense of pride and accomplishment.

They followed the Gamecube with the Wii and the Wii U with the Switch. (Commercial) Failure really does bring out the best in Nintendo.

So if the last console Metroid wasn't good, is there hope for Prime? I wonder what art direction it'll take.

I get the feeling Prime 4 will be to Metroid fans, what Twilight Princess was to Zelda fans that wanted a gritty experience post wind waker.

Nintendo is really trying hard to win over fans, and they know what Prime fans are looking for, especially after Other M (which I thought was ok) and Federation Force.

Man..I need to get the Switch fast!
