Payday 2 Nintendo Switch Port Had Players Scratching Their Head

According to Nintendo, over 906,000 Switch consoles were sold in the month of March, making it the company's fastest selling console to date.

Switch, the new-age home gaming console system offering additional mobility convenience to user who can easily carry it on the go, has emerged as the fastest-selling video game system in Nintendo's history.

Either way, it's an impressive first month of sales for Nintendo's new console; whether the long-time Japanese game console maker can sustain that momentum is another question altogether.

Nintendo plans to announce its worldwide sales and other financial information on April 27.

It is undoubtedly that the Nintendo Switch will get the top spot in March's sales. The reported Breath of the Wild numbers, on the other hand, come directly from "Nintendo's internal sales figures" (including downloaded copies).

It's great to see Nintendo is smashing barriers left and right, and this enormous influx of earnings will be re-invested into the company's operational cashflow to ensure more games, content, and experiences feed its new Switch platform.

Safety Devin McCourty , a team captain, told Time magazine : "Basic reason for me is I don't feel accepted in the White House ". As Spicer was addressing the assembled press, the tight end stuck his head into the briefing room and offered to help him out.

"That means that Nintendo sold more of this game [Breath of the Wild] for Nintendo Switch than it sold Nintendo Switch systems, for an attach rate of more than 100 percent", Nintendo said. The Switch is still selling faster than they can replenish stock, though, so it could also be that some players bought the game and are waiting for a console to play it on.

The figure, courtesy of research firm SuperData, tops Nintendo's projection of about 2 million units for the month.

The company sold over 906,000 Switches in the U.S. in March.

After the flopping of the Wii U, the Nintendo Switch is a great comeback for Nintendo.

For those that have been waiting anxiously for new Nintendo Switch units to be available, Nintendo's announcement might not be surprising. NPD's data accounts only for US sales, but the current global estimate puts March Switch totals at 2.4 million consoles sold. Not to mention: its March launch is highly unusual for a brand-new console, as it's traditional to aim releases for the holiday season. What first looked like a hokey re-skin of Wii Sports Boxing has since become one of the system's most anticipated games. Nintendo is working to make sure everyone who wants a system is able to buy one, and more systems are continually being shipped.
