Nintendo: We Over-Delivered On Nintendo Switch Stock But The Demand Still Outpaced The Supply

Nintendo Switch has been somewhat hard to get since its launch which hinted that Nintendo wasn’t prepared for the console’s demand or underestimated it and it seems that this is the case as Nintendo America President has revealed that they over delivered Nintendo Switch Stock but, the demand still outpaced the supply.

Speaking with Mashable, Reginald Fils-Aimé revealed that Nintendo over delivered the Nintendo Switch stock but, the demand still outpaced the supply as they underestimated the console’s demand greatly. He added that Nintendo is producing at the pace of supplying 10 million units by the end of the current fiscal year.

We actually sold through almost 2.8 million units, so we dramatically over delivered. And yet, demand outpaces supply. So what do some of the consumers on Reddit say? ‘Gosh, Nintendo, if you would’ve made more you would’ve sold more.’ Well, we did make more! And certainly we’re on a pace to supply in the current fiscal year 10 million units.

In related news, a new report has emerged on the internet that suggests Switch will sell 130 million units by 2022. The report comes from a Swiss financial services company, Credit Suisse, and claims that heir estimation is 70 million up from their original one as device sells like a handheld rather than a console.

Also, data miners have found NES Emulator in the hybrid console along with an NES title in the Switch.According to modders, they have found NES emulator already available in Switch and also found a copy of NES Golf installed on it. However, some users have reported that Golf is a tribute to Satoru Iwata.

Also, Nintendo has noted that the company has ramped up the hybrid console’s production for the holiday season. The company revealed that Nintendo Switch production will be ramped up for the holiday which has already been factored in the company’s forecast.
