Nintendo Switch India sales
Although Nintendo doesn’t have an official presence in India, that hasn’t stopped enterprising parallel importers from bringing in the console as well as its first-party titles. According to multiple retailers speaking to The Mako Reactor, the sales of the original Nintendo Switch as well as the version with enhanced battery life have been strong in the country while the Nintendo Switch Lite isn’t as popular with consumers preferring to spend more for the added functionality of being able to use the Switch with a TV.
Industry estimates peg the Nintendo Switch lifetime to date sales to be above 50,000 eclipsing the Xbox One. Not too shabby when you consider that Microsoft has an official presence here while Nintendo does not.
