Switch became the fastest console in history, Nintendo

A Game console went on sale recently, but already it is now clear that the console is literally flying off the shelves of stores worldwide. The Japanese manufacturer has made a bet on the hybridity of the new platform that allows you to use it as at home in conjunction with the TV, or on the road as a portable console. The hand was played and the relatively low price, making the device more affordable consoles competitors. Statistics of sales says that the Switch has become the fastest console in the history of Nintendo.

According to analytical agencies, in the U.S. alone, to date, sold 906 000 boxes with Nintendo Switch. In Japan, the number of consoles sold has already exceeded the mark of 500 000, and the figures for Europe are still being formed, but we can safely assume that there are things in the Switch is also going bad. For comparison, the previous Nintendo console the Wii U during the first six weeks were sold in the US, 890, 000 times, while it appeared on the shelves on Christmas eve 2012, when total sales is fueled by people's desire to indulge in gifts. This Switch makes the sales even more impressive, because it started in March.

"selling Nintendo Switch set a new record in the history of the company. However, the supply of new consoles in the stores are still unable to meet the higher demand. Nintendo is currently doing everything it can to all who want to buy our new system could do it," — reads the official statement of the company.

The Leader of sales has also become game . To date, the US has sold 1.3 million copies of the game in both versions for Wii U (460 000 copies) and Switch (925 000 copies). It is pretty strange that games Switch sold more than the consoles. Given that the new console lacks a regional anchor, it can be assumed that some of the games were purchased in the U.S. online stores for foreign customers at a lower price than in their countries.
