NINTENDO SWITCH WAS REPORTEDLY BLACK FRIDAY AND CYBER MONDAY'S BEST-SELLING PRODUCT
Posted: Posted November 30th by Q


According to Adobe Digital Insights (via Markets Insider), Switch was the best-selling product among online retailers on Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. While competing platforms, like PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, were available at a discount, Nintendo's console was not even on sale.

"Even we had not expected such a record-breaking streak," Jefferies analyst Atul Goyal explained in a note to clients. "This strong sales is going to create a robust installed base, which is where games software will monetize over the next 5-7 years."

Nintendo's stock is up 88.5 percent for the year and is currently trading at $414.50 USD.

On the software front, the clear champions of Black Friday were Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus and Middle-earth: Shadow of War. Check out the top 10 games and movies bought this year, based on data gathered from IGN Deals' Black Friday articles and wikis.

Joining the lineup of critically acclaimed titles like Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild that are now available for Switch is Xenoblade Chronicles 2, which launches tomorrow. For our thoughts Monolith Soft's new role-playing game, read IGN's Xenoblade Chronicles 2 review.

Could the Switch channel the Wii and over take the PS4 and X1 in sales? It's off to a very good start in it's first year.

I fucking hope so- I'm always rooting for Nintendo, and nothing on Xbox or PS4 looks interesting to me at all, although I admit I'm not paying very close attention.

Maybe they could surpass PS4 sales yearly sales(not life time) if they maintain their momentum by having the software to back it up and reduce the price of the switch every year. What I mostly hope for is a switch version with more power to match ps4 pro, and also just more third party support(and them actually selling well so we get a constant flow going). I want call of duty for instance.

I'm actually impressed it sold so much.. This is compared to Xbone and PS4 that sold at least $100 cheaper on black friday at $200 vs Switch's $300 price tag.

Also, I need to get some Nintendo stock. I've been meaning to buy some for a while.

I'm not. The System is still pretty new and it has regularly sold out since it's launch earlier this year. And there have been quite a few quality games that have been released like Mario and Zelda along with some great 3rd party games.

It will be interesting to see how things look next year around this time.
