Nintendo Doubles Switch Production Due to High Demand

The best Nintendo Switch stand yet is an expensive iPhone dock

The new Nintendo Switch game console is displayed at a pop-up Nintendo venue in Madison Square Park, March 3, 2017 in New York City.

The success of Switch over Wii U of course depends on the content, i.e., the games of the console. SuperData predicted just before launch that the Switch would sell just 5 million units through the end of 2017, and IHS predicted 4.4 million sales for the year.

The report suggests Nintendo is ramping up production for the year from an initial 8 million, all the way up to 16 million. The PS4 sold just over 14 million consoles worldwide in 2014, after selling about 4 million units during its 2013 holiday launch.

Whether that directly translates to more units of the console making their way to stores sooner rather than later still remains to be seen, however, though gamers will likely be paying close attention to what happens next.

Nintendo has not released an official statement on possible causes for the connectivity problems of the left Joy-Con, though the company has claimed that the issue is not as widespread as it is reported to be, with the number of requested replacements or repairs for the controller considered to be "not significant". The report also noted that the main challenge for Switch is convincing current owners of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to consider buying the Switch as a second console. This new allotment will go fast. Hence, the availability of Nintendo Switch is expected to remain limited for the time being. If you want to purchase a unit, you'll have to line up with everybody else on your nearest Gamestop store by March 22 to be able to get a chance to get one. With Nintendo's long history of a supply shortage, it is safe to say that it is not really surprising why Nintendo Switch will also be out of stock everywhere. The more expensive $599.99 Switch bundle is available online at GameStop.com. A new Zelda game will be amongst the launch titles for the new Nintendo Switch, formerly known as Nintendo NX.
