The new Nintendo Switch went on sale last Friday and now we have some details on how many consoles have been sold in the UK.
According to a recent report Nintendo sold 80,000 Switch consoles in the UK last weekend, this is double that of their previous console, the Wii U.
This is not as high as the launch of the 3DS in the UK which sold 113,000 units on the first weekend and also below the 2500,000 PlayStation 4 consoles and 150,000 Xbox One consoles sold on their opening weekends.
This is a good start for Nintendo and sales of their new game, The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild were good as it ended up being the second most popular boxed game this week.
It will be interesting to see if Nintendo can increase their weekly sales of their console and also we are looking forward to finding out how it did in other countries.
