  • Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday

Nintendo's eshop includes a wide variety of indie titles as well as most major game releases for the system.

Luckily, Amazon is giving us a chance to pick up the Xbox One X with a steep $100 discount for Cyber Monday.

Nintendo Switch surpassed all previous Nintendo hardware sales records to become the best-selling console in the United States for the five-day period from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday.

Total U.S. hardware sales during the period of Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday increased 45 percent over the same period in 2017.

While the Switch is showing momentum and had a very strong kickoff to the 2018 holiday season, it still has a long way to go before it catches up with the Wii's overall sales.




Lifetime sales reached more than 8.2 million units.

Sales of first-party games, including digital downloads, topped 1 million units November 22-26, beating 2017's totals by 78 percent.

Upon launch previous year, Super Mario Odyssey received plaudits from fans and critics alike, shifting console units and eventually becoming the best-selling Switch release on a global scale, having sold some 12 million copies.

Nintendo's guidance calls for Switch sales to hit 20 million by the end of its fiscal year, a number some analysts are skeptical it will hit. Figures for all console and game sales covering the season, which will be reported in January, should prove interesting.
