Why The Nintendo Switch Is More Than Just A Hype
There has been a lot of positive hype surrounding the Nintendo Switch. While this might be enough to spark the curiosity of others, it will not necessarily be enough for gamers. However, there is much more to the new console than just hype.
As noted by Ars Technica, the Nintendo Switch has been doing incredibly well in the market. Reports indicated that it has recorded the first two-day sales numbers in the company's history, even beating out the Wii. However, the publication pointed out that this is not necessarily a reason to jump to success conclusions.
The Wii U, which was the Nintendo Switch's predecessor, had great numbers at the start too. In its first week in North America, 400,000 units were sold. That increased to almost 900,000 at its sixth week. Meanwhile, in Japan, 300,000 units were sold during the launch weekend. At the end of the first month, 636,000 units were sold in the said country. But at the end of its life cycle, there were only some 3 million units sold in total.
Fortunately for Nintendo, the Switch has more going on than mere hype. To put it straightforwardly, the console delivers in more ways than one. It is quick and easy to use, as Business Insider has noted. Mobile game popularity has grown immensely because it is accessible in a way that the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One are not. It is the same concept with the Switch, which can simply be placed in sleep mode when not in use.
And yet, if home-docked gaming is more preferred, the Nintendo Switch delivers on this aspect as well. It is powerful enough to play on a full-screen television set. However, the feature that will set it apart and push it to success is that it easily transfers from one mode to another. It is just a matter of slipping the tablet on and off the Switch Dock.
