Nintendo Switch Sales Boosting Video Game Economy in U.S.

Nintendo Switch Sales

Nintendo is moving a lot of units lately. The Switch has been the best-selling video game console for five of the seven months since it hit the U.S. market in March. That’s an OK accomplishment, I guess. The reason they are leading the console race lately is that everybody already had their PS4 and XBox. The console sales avalanche is complete… until the holiday shopping ramps up in the U.S. That’s when you will see sales of the PS4 pick up again.

Nintendo Switch Sales Are Up Despite Difficulties

When the latest Nintendo console hit the U.S. market this past spring, many fans were dismayed that they couldn’t locate a unit to purchase. That doesn’t seem to be a bad thing for the video game maker; It appears that the anticipation and lack of availability created more of a demand. Leave them wanting more… or some in the first place.

According to a Nintendo press release, the gaming company has accounted for two-thirds of September’s gaming hardware sales when you factor in their 3DS and NES Classic Edition system sales.

Nintendo has some great titles launching in the coming months, starting with Super Mario Odyssey on October 27. Have you seen the trailers or commercials for that game? It looks pretty epic, broseph. The gaming giant will also be releasing a much-anticipated Mario Party game as well as a new Pokemon game in November. Those titles are going to sell like hotcakes on a cold day.

The Nintendo Switch has fewer titles than the PS4 and XBox, but they have some groovy exclusives that should keep their sales numbers pretty solid during the holiday buying season. Personally, I would love to have a Nintendo Switch, but it’s probably a good thing that I don’t have one right now. I’ve been extremely busy and that would just take up a big chunk of my time.
