Nintendo is Planning on Moving 2 Million Switch Units in March
According to Wall Street Journal's Takashi Mochizuki, Nintendo reported during their financial report briefing that they expect to ship 2 million Nintendo Switch devices by the end of the company's fiscal year.
Nintendo's fiscal year ends on March 31, which is the same month that the Switch is set to release. For comparison sake, the Wii U was projected to sell 5.5 million units by the end of company's fiscal year in March 2013, though the Wii U was released in November of 2012.
With just a few weeks at most to sell 2 million Switch devices, Nintendo may be tampering their expectations after surprisingly slow sales of the Wii U.
Nintendo also made it clear that they did not want to sell the Switch at a loss, which is typical for the company. While some companies sell their systems at a loss with the intent to gain the money in software sales, Nintendo has usually opted to sell their consoles at a profit. It will be interesting to see how this affects the price of the Switch, seeing as most analysts seems to think the price range will fall around the $300 mark.
Nintendo unveiled the NX to be the Nintendo Switch last week, and since then, the gaming world has been set ablaze with rumors, concerns, and joy regarding Nintendo's new hybrid-console.
