In their Financials in Japan today, Nintendo reported that over 89 million Switch consoles are now sold. Small wonder developers are reporting better sales on the console.
Consoles are a fragmented market compared to the PC which dominates the gaming market. When it ended production, the Xbox 360 had sold 86 million units, while the PS3 reached 87.4 million. Of course, Nintendo’s ultimate goal will be to beat the all-time record holder, the PS2 – but it has quite a way to go to reach Sony’s 155 million unit-selling juggernaut.
PC gaming is not that expensive and incremental upgrades are infrequent.
