Nintendo Switch Family targets 155 million units sold by 2025
At Ampere Analysis, it is anticipated that the Nintendo Switch family of systems will see about 155 million units sold by the end of 2025. About five million units are projected to be sold by the end of 2021. The OLED model of the Nintendo Switch will be released on October 8. Piers Harding-Rolls, an analyst at Ampere, anticipates that the newer model of the game will be released gradually to replace the current model. It is unknown whether Nintendo will release a more robust switch pro system sooner, but this may occur in 2024.
An improvement of the flagship version will create such a great platform to allow new features to be added over the next couple of years. Because there is only a tiny difference in price between the current flagship and the OLED version, many users whose eyes have been on the Switch tend to opt for the OLED version.
Some features which users would find hard to resist include a bigger screen, better audio, and legibility for in-person social play. This is such an enticing way for the existing switch users to get an upgrade. This will particularly appeal to Switch users in handheld mode and those with Switch before the battery improvements.
The OLED model is predicted to have about five million units sold by the end of 2021, after which there will be a slow replacement of the current flagship model in 2022. This is expected to cause a boost in the sales of the switch family devices, expected to have about 155 million units sold by 2025, making Switch the biggest console sales-topping PS2 and a million units ahead of Nintendo’s own DS family.
