In total, Nintendo sold 14.86 million units by the end of December - this is noteworthy, given that the portable system hasn't even been out for a year yet. In less than a year.

In terms of pure facts and figures, Nintendo has sold 14.86 million Switch consoles over its ten-month lifespan, 7.23 million of which came in the last three months of 2017. Sales have exceeded initial estimates, on track to beat the lifetime numbers of its predecessor Wii U, leaving suppliers scrambling for parts. Nintendo predicts to have moved 15 Million Switch units since April 1st, 2017.

Nintendo reported earnings for its fiscal third quarter of 2017 on Wednesday that beat market expectations, with the gaming giant also upping the sales forecast for its flagship Switch console.

"Odyssey" in particular topped the charts, with 9.07 million units sold, while "Zelda" reached 6.7 million copies. However, this means that Nintendo is back in the game after a worrying generation of console sales and lackluster titles, so the future looks as bright as ever for Mario and crew.

P!nk Slams Recording Academy For Tepid "Women Need To Step Up" Response
I didn't think we'd ever get to a point where the out-of-touch Recording Academy honored an album like DAMN, so that was welcome. Portnow said it's up to the women to " step up " and it's up to the industry to make the "welcome mat" very obvious to them.


If you follow video games, it's hard not to see that the Nintendo Switch has had a pretty bonkers first year on sale.

This number beats out its predecessor's lifetime sales, which is an unbelievable accomplishment for a console that isn't even a year old. This is an increase of over 261 per cent and the highest quarterly operating profit since the quarter ending December 2009. "Switch sales during the holiday season were stronger than expected in Japan, the United States and Europe". I think the cardboard is going to sell surprisingly well, even at almost $100.

Minecraft's Xbox characters are finally coming to the Switch and Wii U versions of the game. How many consoles do you think the Switch can sell in 2018? Software-wise, 17.43 million 3DS games were retailed during the last quarter, bringing the financial year's total to 31.25 million.
