"Looking ahead, we are excited to share more about our plans for Xbox One, including launching the world's most powerful console - Project Scorpio - alongside an fantastic lineup of new Xbox One games", they said in a note.
Nintendo sold over 906,000 Switch units in the United States alone last month, making it, as they bragged in a press release tonight, the fastest-selling video game system in the company's long history.
But these are impressive numbers thus far, and it shows powerful momentum for Nintendo's console, far more than what it accomplished with the Wii U years ago.
The Nintendo Switch was released on March 3, meaning it sold almost 1 million units in its first 29 days of availability. Today, an independent research group, SuperData, released a report that reveals the console's global success, selling over 2.4 million units across the world! Not only has the game earned unprecedented critical acclaim, but it's also the fastest-selling Nintendo game, with over 1.3 million units sold across both the Wii U and Switch versions in the month of March. Nintendo attributes this freakish phenomenon to "people who purchased both a limited edition of the game to collect and a second version to play".
Nintendo's new video game console, the Switch, is a hit.
Nintendo also confirmed that Breath of the Wild is its fastest-selling launch title ever in the United States. The reported Breath of the Wild numbers, on the other hand, come directly from "Nintendo's internal sales figures" (including downloaded copies). They assure that they are working hard to make sure that more consoles are continually being shipped to retailers. 925,000 of those copies were on the Switch and 460,000 were sold on the Wii U.
A lot of Nintendo fans that are insane collectors of games and they do not back off from purchasing more than one copy of a game at once. The console should continue to enjoy good sales, especially with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe coming up at the end of the month. The rendering of the game on the Nintendo Switch is astounding, with sharp and bright screens with powerful stereo speakers.
