While the Wii U was considered by many to be a flop, especially following the success of the Wii, the Nintendo Switch seems to be redeeming Nintendo in the eyes of gamers. In fact according to data compiled by market research firm Media Create, it turns out that the Switch is selling faster at launch compared to that of the PS4.
If you might recall, an earlier report revealed that the Switch had managed to sell 300,000 units in its first week, although those numbers did put it slightly behind the PS4 which sold 322,100 units. However according to Media Create, they are now claiming that as of March 26, 2017, the Switch has managed to sell 519,504 units in Japan. This is versus the PS4 which managed to sell 439,810 units within the same amount of time.
So far the Switch has been met with pretty good reviews, save for a few aspects of the console such as the Joy-Con’s connectivity which Nintendo has since claimed that they have addressed. The Switch’s success also appears to be largely thanks to games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild which has received near-perfect reviews and ratings across various publications and websites.
