Nintendo Switch sells 7.6 million units worldwide

Shares in Germany rose as much as 3 percent in low-volume trading.

Nintendo's portable 3DS family of handheld systems actually saw a jump in sales this quarter despite the fact that the Switch can be used as both a home console and portable system.

The famous Japanese video games console maker Nintendo Co Ltd.is expecting its highest earnings in seven years.

Nintendo is feeling really good about the Nintendo Switch's prospects.

Operating profit came in at ¥40 billion, reversing a year-earlier operating loss, while revenue was ¥374.0 billion - almost triple last year's level. Revenue is now forecast at 960 billion yen, up from 750 billion yen.

KitGuru says: The Nintendo Switch is certainly doing well for Nintendo. That number has been raised in the latest report to 14 million. The earlier projection estimated a sale of 10 million units.

Wii U has sold 13.56 million units since its release in November 2012.

Sony's PlayStation 4 debuted in North America on November 15, 2013, internationally on November 29, and in Japan on February 22, 2014, and sold 7 million units of 7.5 million the company had shipped by April 2014, five and a half months into its lifecycle. People love the way you can bring it with you wherever you go, the vibrant screen, the small bezel, but perhaps most importantly the strong game library right out of the gate.

The new Nintendo Switch has been popular with gaming and Nintendo fans, Nintendo has now reveled that it has sold a total of 8 million Switch consoles since launch. "We bet big on the Switch as a game changer so we began making games before the Switch's launch, but many software companies showed reluctance in releasing Switch games before they witnessed the current success", Koei Tecmo CEO Yoichi Erikawa told The Wall Street Journal. "The forecast is too low". Operating profits came in at 23.7 billion yen against the consensus estimate of 19 billion yen.

"The true power of the Switch would be tested during the upcoming holiday season".
