Wii would like to Switch
If you’re a dedicated Nintendo fan, you already know the Switch is killing it in terms of sales. The system keeps chugging along after 6+ years, and somehow it’s still breaking records as well.
According to a new report from Circana, the Switch has officially surpassed the total Wii sales in the United States. I think we all remember how much of a cultural phenomenon the Wii was, so to see the Switch outsell it is extremely impressive. Even crazier, there’s still more than enough life left in the Switch to keep heaping on millions of units sold.
The Switch should be somewhere over 40 million units sold in the U.S. right now. What we do know is that the system is less than 1 million units away from outselling the Xbox 360, and roughly 5 million units from beating out PS2 sales. With major titles like Super Mario Bros. Wonder on the way and a holiday season following right after, it seems like Switch is a lock for beating out both of those platforms.
