Nintendo Switch Top-Selling Console Online During 5-Day Thanksgiving Weekend

  • GameStop Cyber Monday 2018 Deal on Nintendo Switch Stands Out

Also aided by strong November 22-26 sales, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system surpassed lifetime sales of 2.5 million.

Internal sales figures show shoppers spent $250 million on Nintendo products overall between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday.

The thanksgiving weekend, also known as black Friday, cyber Monday and the two days in between, is a huge moneymaking period for every company, even though the prices of products are slashed by so much (a fact which serves to underscore just how absurd many mark-up prices are).

The video game giant has set the bar to sell 20 million Switch consoles by the end of the fiscal year ending in March 2019 and as of October, they've still got 15 million units to go. This includes the recently released Pokémon: Lets Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Lets Go, Eevee! games, as well as the upcoming Super Smash Bros.

Lifetime sales of Nintendo Switch, which is entering only its second holiday season, have reached more than 8.2 million units.

Nintendo Switch has successfully sold over 8.2 million units since its March 2017 launch.

According to a report from Polygon, Nintendo has a one day sale today for those who purchase the popular Nintendo Switch console.

And Super Mario Odyssey, which came out past year and has already sold 13 million copies to date, continues to climb back up, with a 25th place spot on the charts and a 110 percent increase in sales.
