  • 200 Titles Now Available in Nintendo Switch eShop

To put that number into perspective, Wii U sales still have not topped 14 million units.

Interestingly, Nintendo has revised its projections for the Switch again, with the new forecast of 16.74 Million by March 31 2018.

The signs are already promising.

Provided Nintendo settles its supply issues, Switch sales could easily surpass Wii U lifetime sales in its first year on the market. Nintendo sold 2.92 consoles and 13.9 million games from July-September.

Kyoto-based Nintendo, which makes Super Mario and Pokemon games, said its sales rose 173 percent from a year earlier in April-September to 374 billion yen ($3.3 billion).

But Nintendo's core business is still going strong.

With the Switch though, Nintendo has tapped into something much more tangible. Because of this, it's no surprise folks are more receptive to Switch than they were to Wii U.

But on the completely opposite end of the spectrum from exclusivity is the cross-platform capabilities that come with the Nintendo Switch version.
