SuperData Research has gone on record stating that Nintendo’s latest home console, Nintendo Switch, could go on to sell over 5 million units in 2017 alone. The company also believes that it will be the devout Nintendo fans buying the console initially but it could well open up to mainstream appeal due to its innovative nature. Here is what they had to say regarding the system:
“The biggest challenge for Nintendo is to convince console gamers to purchase the Switch as a second device, as many have already committed to a PlayStation 4 (53.4 million installed base, worldwide) or Xbox One (26 million).
“Asking $300 for a new console without a bundled game is a comparatively higher barrier to entry for consumers, considering that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are already discounted and come with a free game.”
Sounds good to me. I can see it happening pretty easily actually. They have already announced that their initial 2 million should be quite scarce…. Only 3 million units to shift from now until the end of the year!
In case you missed all the sweet “Nindie” titles that are headed to Nintendo Switch, check out the video above and give it a watch. As we all know, the Nintendo Switch is set to launch this Friday, March 3rd and we are cautiously optimistic about the system (I can’t wait but I PRAY that this system does well at retail).
Indie titles looks like they will have a huge presence on Nintendo’s next home console, Nintendo Switch, so only time will tell if this huge presence will pay off.
These games do look very interesting to say the least.
Get ready for #Nindies Summer Jam! Every Thursday in September, a new digital release for Wii U, Nintendo 3DS or both, will hit the Nintendo eShop at 10% of listing price for the first week!
Check out these participating #Nindies Summer Jam titles, as well as a variety of upcoming Nindie games for the rest of 2016 and beyond!
It’s a good thing that these Nindie titles are showing up on the Wii U as the release schedule for the dying system is pretty dismal. It’s unfortunate because the Wii U was a very nice system that will never full reach its true potential. I do have to say that these indie titles do look pretty nice and I see a number that I want to download.
Check out the trailer and let us know what “Nindie” is your favorite.
