Nintendosold about 5 million Switch globally in the first half of its fiscal year, leaving just under 15 million units in sales needed to hit its 2018 fiscal year sales goal, the company reported Tuesday. Quarterly sales, meanwhile, rose to ¥221 billion ($2 billion) from ¥220 billion, behind company estimates.
For the holidays, the Switch is sure to enjoy a huge boost in sales thanks to the game releases Nintendo has planned.
Should Sony cross that 100 million mark, the PS4 will be one of the company's best-selling systems - ahead of the PS3 (80 million consoles sold) and original PlayStation (102 million consoles old). The company's 5.07 million units sold for the first half of this fiscal is up from 4.89 million for the same period a year ago.
Highly anticipated:Nintendo's Switch is midway through its second year and sales continue to be incredibly solid. For reference, the next most successful Nintendo console was the Nintendo 64 at 33 million units and the most successful (in non-handhelds) is the Wii at 101 million units. While the upper reaches of the list have remained consistent, a few year two contenders have either made it on or moved up on the list, showing some strong and continued traction for the Switch's first party library. "The holiday season battle begins now".
