Nintendo Life Time Hardware/Software Sales March 7, 2017
Now that the Nintendo Switch has been released we wanted to take a look back at previous Nintendo consoles. Many gamers think of Nintendo as a home console system mainly but that is just not true. Nintendo’s to two bestselling systems are handheld mobile systems. The Gameboy and the Nintendo DS have out sold many of the Nintendo’s home console systems by a margin as much as 6 to 1. And if you add in Gameboy Advance and Nintendo 3DS to the numbers in the margin is much greater. One thing did stay constant. For every 1 hardware unit sold somewhere between 5 and 9 software units were also bought. This number seems low but we are a company filled with life long gamers.
