Comparing Nintendo Switch Sales To The Wii's And The Wii U's

Comparing Nintendo Switch Sales To The Wii's And The Wii U's

The Nintendo Switch was released back in March of past year alongside the new Zelda, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Although Switch players have had no problem going online and engaging with other players worldwide, the console's online infrastructure is still missing key features, especially its monthly subscription plan thanks to a delay.

According to Nintendo, the online service will be releasing in September 2018.

Xbox and PlayStation established their paid online services years ago. The Switch was only released in March of last year and has already eclipsed the lifetimes sales for it's predecessor the Wii U which launched back in November 2012 and sold a total of 13.56 million units before Nintendo officially ended production for it last year. While they supported the DS for eight years, the original Gameboy for 13 years, and the 3DS is now in it's eighth year, Nintendo pulled the plug on N64 support just before the normal console life cycle (5-6 years).

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is on 7.33 million sales, followed by Zelda: Breath of the Wild with 6.7million units and Splatoon 2 at almost 5 million.

Supposedly, the online service will cost $3.99 a month or $19.99 for a year subscription.

"The Nintendo 3DS characteristics, price points, and play styles differ from Nintendo Switch, and we intend to continue the Nintendo 3DS business separately and in parallel", Nintendo CEO Tatsumi Kimishima said during the company's financial results briefing (via Gematsu). Some of these games would include Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros.

In short, the year was full of major Switch games that could only be played on Switch.

The Switch is an anomaly in many ways, not least the fact that it's Nintendo's second console this generation - after the abject failure of the Wii U. The 2nd video game in the catalog also arrives from Nintendo, which is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Nintendo has reported its most profitable quarter in nearly a decade as global sales of its new Switch console soared in the runup to Christmas.

With PSN and Xbox Live, subscribers are given the chance to download games for free, and supposedly Nintendo will be bringing that feature to the Switch.
