Nintendo Switch: New Milestone Narrows Gap With Sony PS4!

By  | 

It is official. Nintendo has confirmed that they have sold over 5 million Switch in Japan and this is only 2 million units behind the Sony PS4.

It’s certainly a remarkable accomplishment as the Switch is able to achieve this milestone in the pace of 1 year and 6 months. Meanwhile, the PS4’s 7 million units sold in Japan is based on about 5 years of sales activity.

The achievement goes to show the huge demand for the Switch and many are predicting the hybrid console to overtake the PS4 in its home market by January 2019.

The predictions cited that the Switch will move in huge numbers during Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the holiday season in December this year. The season will see the Switch getting adopted by more consumers thus allowing it to overtake the PS4’s numbers in Japan.
