Being a handheld hybrid, there were speculations that the Nintendo Switch will not go good in sales. This prediction was based on the reflection of Nintendo Wii-U, which only sold a little over 12 million units during its entire existence.
To bring back the fortunes and to get back in the race with PS4 and Xbox one, Nintendo has applied more focus on home console portability, a renewed online presence and a consistent support.
Supporting this fact, DFC Intelligence, an analysis firm has predicted that Nintendo Switch Console will have 40 million units sold in the next four years. PS4 and Xbox one already hit that mark within the same span of time. The analysts say that Nintendo Switch will also join the sales race from its time of release.
Here is what the DFC intelligence report said :
Demand is expected to be strong and the major issue will be whether the system can attract a broad audience starting in the holiday sales season of 2017. The Switch is a compelling piece of hardware that could potentially reach a much larger addressable market. However given the limited software and Nintendo’s poor recent track record of introducing new products we have tempered our forecasts to be conservative.
12 million units will be made available for launch of the device. I am not sure how much of them will be sold.
Do you guys think, the Switch will sell 40 million?
