Nintendo with a great comeback story here after the disastrous Wii U. Now let’s see the Switch take over the rest of the world!

Rest of the world? Too late for that, could of had a chance if the Switch actually released in 2013.

I hope this means a super Mario 3D world port for the switch.

Too bad the switch isn’t a console.

It’s a handheld and the successor to the 3DS.

PS4 is still the best selling console in Japan and Worldwide. LOL at sheep trying to claim it’s a console.

Do they physically connect to your TV? Are you connecting an HDMI cable from a box that is plugged into the wall, and plugging that cable into your TV?

Each time news surfaces that Switch is going to outsell Ps4 in Japan, cows come up with a new way of damage control 😂

Now that it officially outsells it, they are in denial that it is a console 😂

Cows are pathetic 😂

Switch outsold Ps4 in Japan. PERIOD 😉

Congrats Nintendo 👏

And yes, you can plug in your phone, chromecast box or whatever you want.

These options are even better than the damn switch because they can do it wirelessly.

But hey, go ahead and pretend the switch is a console when my damn phone does the same thing and does it better.

Switch is a glorified cheap tablet/handheld. Sheep are delusional if they think it qualifies as a console when the freaking rumours of the switch mini/lite are getting rid of the dock altogether!

@ajstyles: it’s a hybrid therefore can be used as a home console.

Who cares about mobile. Tablets can take a phone sim. I need Laptops to embrace that.

What is more pathetic is the damage controlling you clowns do here on SW, Japan a country you lot are not even associated with. It only keeps getting mentioned because is just one country where Switch does well, you lot are just upset it doesn't anywhere else in the world. Now that my friends is some pathetic fanboy shit right there, I certainly do not make threads praising Sony and dedicating delight to select countries where it dominates, it would take a very long time.

Everyone already owns a Xbox or PS4, happens with all tech. Nobody are buying 3DS's are they? Once a newer product appears the same applies. What kind of shit spinning was that?

PS5 or Xbox will be winning NPD when they release, different excuse for Nintendo right? Another clown of SW right here folks.

It's selling faster than PS4 did in US. It's selling very well in about every region.

Congrats to Nintendo, too bad Japan numbers are so tiny and insignificant compared to the rest of the world. 60 million units to go before they catch up with the PS4's worldwide lead. They should have released the Switch in 2013.

The shield tablet released in 2014, 2013 would of been impossible. Five years later you have a 40% downclocked version for a higher price.

True I guess. Oh well, they definitely wasted their time with the WiiU, they should have done this console/handheld hybrid idea in 2012 instead of the WiiU even if it would have been weaker due to lack of Tegra. As it is now it's impossible for it to catch up with the PS4's worldwide lead.

Well PS4 was the top selling console in the world in 2018 despite Switch winning in US and Japan last year. Europe is the largest market in the world and Sony owns there so they are still able to sell more worldwide despite slowing sales in US and JPN.
