  • Nintendo Switch Price is Significantly Impacting Sales Suggests UK Survey

According to a poll carried out in the United Kingdom by Harris Interactive, just 32% of those who had heard of the console said that they were interested in buying it in the next three months.

"The Nintendo Switch is off to a start right now that it could possibly eclipse the Wii", he said.

And it faces a tough market, with both Sony's PS4 and Microsoft's Xbox One firmly established with a large library of games and features.

Nintendo Switch, Nintendo NES Classic Stocks will be shortly updated. According to U.S. outlet GameStop, and its merchandising director Eric Bright, meanwhile, the Switch's success could well continue - in fact, he thinks the new system could even do better than the Wii. They are now waiting for Nintendo to ship them a new batch that they can later sell to customers.

In an interview with GameRant, Bright described the Switch's sales to date as "phenomenal", and, while he stopped short of quoting actual numbers, said it was shifting lots of hardware and software in his stores. This news recently prompted Nintendo to announce that production orders would be doubled to make sure those who wanted a Switch could find one. "The total number of fix or replacement requests for Nintendo Switch, including for Joy-Con, is consistent with what we've seen for any new hardware Nintendo has launched".

They then went responded further by saying that the overall number is not significant and any issues, including the left Joy-Con connection problems are consistent with past Nintendo hardware launches. There's no telling how many units are being shipped out, so if you really want a Switch it's best to hedge your bets.

The original Wii went on to sell 101 million units in its lifespan, from its 2006 launch to its discontinuation in 2013.

The appeal of the Nintendo Switch has evidently not been deterred despite the complaints of the Joy-Con controllers.
