The site also went so far as to break down the individual sales figures for each individual system, and it might just shock you how good some of them are they were] NES – 61.91
The Nintendo Entertainment System has cut a fine figure with 61 million units sold; and the SNES was not so shabby with 49 million units sold. But as you can see, there was a little break between the Nintendo 64 and the GameCube, though it's popular in the gaming community. The Wii has resumed the sale and sold more than 100 million units; But then the numbers with the Wii U have dropped drastically.
The Switch, however, seems to be nearing the mark of 20 million units sold, with more coming after hits like Super Mario Party and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate coming by. We wish Nintendo good luck.
And that's not all. Gamnesia has also measured the total number of handheld devices the company has sold – and they set even more records.
- Game Boy – 118.69 (contains color)
- Game Boy Advance – 81.51
- DS – 154.02
- 3DS – 72.89
- Total: 427.11
Nothing can beat the game Boy beat, it seems. But the 3DS is outrageously good with over 72 million units sold. Even with the slight decline in games, it will certainly be a favorite favorite in this holiday season.
Overall, Nintendo and Sony have sold a total of 1.253 billion consoles. Not too shabby, and we're sure that companies will continue to push their current models like hot cakes. (And of course we will continue to buy them.)
