The Switch Beat the Lifetime Sales of the Wii U in 2017


Destructoid has the story.

Quote:
With just 10 months on the market, the Nintendo Switch did what the Wii U couldn't: sell more than 14 million consoles. Nintendo released its sales data today and, as many people anticipated, the Switch did indeed outsell the Wii U globally before the end of 2017. The console-handheld hybrid moved 14.86 million units last year, pushing it past the lifetime 13.56 million sales of the Wii U. 52.57 million games were sold on the Switch in that time, giving it an attach rate of around three and a half.

The best selling game by far is Super Mario Odyssey. It sold more than nine million copies in its short time on the market. It joins six other first-party titles from 2017 that sold north of a million units on the Switch.
  1. Super Mario Odyssey - 9.06 Million
  2. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - 7.33 Million
  3. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - 6.70 Million
  4. Splatoon 2 - 4.91 Million
  5. 1-2-Switch 1.88 Million
  6. ARMS - 1.61 Million
  7. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 - 1.06 Million
Not bad for a year's work. On the 3DS side of the things, Pokémon Ultra Sun/Moon moved a stellar 7.17 million copies in less than two months.
Read on.

OMG, so much failure!

Good for them. Now stop making hardware and just sell your software all over the place like a good little multiplatform developer.

Octopath Traveller is still my most-anticipated game for the console in coming months. If Metroid turns out good, we'll see if I'll grab that too. Attach rate is just 2 games for me right now.

Outselling the Wii U is no great feat at all. But doing so this quickly is pretty good.

But did you know that it's the most powerful console ever made?

Or that it's the most powerful console ever made?

It's still a testament to its popularity; it outsold its predecessor in less than a year.

I have to be upfront and admit I was wrong here. Normally I am right in my gut feelings on what will fail and succeed in the console gaming market. I was very wrong in regards to the Switch. I originally taught Nintendo lost their minds!!! So glad I was wrong. I ended up getting rid of my Xbox Ones, have my ultimate PC as main gaming hub, and picked up the Switch for real gaming goodness.

Good on you for admitting you were wrong. Too bad others here don't or EVER will, just hide their shitty opinions like it was a joke all along.

I predicted the WiiU would end up out selling the Xbone. I was way wrong. The Switch i predicted 80 Million sold very early on. That's really up to Nintendo with the games and price drops.

I think if Nintendo had stuck with the WiiU and put out an updated, cheaper gamepad, sold them in stores and brought out their big guns (like i was expecting) It could have potentially been on par with the bone. But it was surprising how quickly they cut the cord on it.

I think alot of it had to do with how shitty internet fags and media were shitting on it. It was uncalled for. Now with consoles potentially going hybrid i don't know if we will ever get another dual screen console again. And that sucks because i really liked it. Maybe when wireless HDMI becomes a thing and is cheap.

7 exclusives topping 1 million in 10 months isn't bad at all. Outselling the Lifetime Wii-U sales in 10 months is equally as impressive. Nintendo is on the rebound. If they keep producing quality games, we all win.
