For those curious about the Switch’s initial sale figures, the Nintendo Switch has sold approximately 80,000 units in the first week of sale, which is double the amount of it’s predecessor the Wii U but short of the 3DS and Wii’s figures. It was quite hard for consumers to buy the console, unless they pre-ordered beforehand.
Daniel Ahmad (aka @ZhugeEX) has the figures of the other consoles to put the Switch’s sales in comparison.
Switch sold 80k units first week in the UK.
250k – PS4
165k – PS3
150k – XB1
113k – 3DS
105k – Wii
70k – 360
40k – Wii U
