That Nintendo Switch is sweeping in recent years is something that everyone already knows. Week after week and month after month the console of the big N is the most sold in number of territories and this does not seem to stop.
Neither the arrival of PS5 and Xbox Series X has been a real problem for the hybrid, which is already close to 90 million units sold. If it continues like this, it will soon surpass its older sister, Nintendo Wii, and if the hot streak continues, it will launch in search of Nintendo DS and PS2.
Ampere Analysis has predicted that Nintendo Switch will end up fulfilling its goal of becoming the best-selling console in history by 2025. This would mean overcoming the 155 million consoles sold, a true milestone within the sector, which has not been within reach of the most recent consoles.

As discussed, the release of an improved version will mean 5 million consoles sold in the remainder of 2021 alone and it will also serve to attract a new audience and tempt those who already own a normal Switch or Lite model.
