We’ve now got a good idea of how well the Nintendo Switch is selling. According to the reliable VGChartz, Nintendo’s home-but-also-portable console has broken the five million units sold milestone. That figure includes all sales, all over the world.
Here are the specifics:
The Nintendo Switch reached the milestone for the week ending July 22, 2017. The console sold 272,770 units to bring its lifetime sales to 5,195,578 units. There have also been 10,106,874 games sold for the Switch at retail.
Breaking down the sales by region, the Switch has sold best in the US with 1,740,629 units sold (34%), compared to 1,398,764 units sold in Europe (27%) and 1,200,307 units sold in Japan (23%). Looking more closely at Europe, the console has sold an estimated 225,726 units in the UK, 303,712 units in Germany, and 348,925 units in France.
That’s a lot of hardware being shifted in its first year. Nintendo has benefited from a large number of quality games launching at, or close to, its release.
