Nintendo's Black Friday & Cyber Monday Sales Top $250 Million

The Switch's latest big-name games are also doing well - Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Let's Go, Eevee have already sold 1.5 million units, and Super Mario Party has managed to suprass the 1 million unit mark.

In total, U.S. hardware sales for Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday increased 45% over the same period in 2017. Year-over year, sales of the console over those five days were up by 115%. The Nintendo Switch became the best-selling Nintendo console in United States history for those five days, even surpassing the Wii, and the system also had its best-selling week ever in the US.

"Whether you're talking about Nintendo Switch, whether you're talking about Nintendo 2DS, we really do well with that gift-giving occasion".

While the Switch is showing momentum and had a very strong kickoff to the 2018 holiday season, it still has a long way to go before it catches up with the Wii's overall sales. Active until 8:59 a.m. PT on November 28, the promotion offers up to 50 percent off select digital games in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS.

Elsewhere, the SNES Classic surpassed 2.5 million in lifetime sales over the holidays, while the NES Classic eased past the 2 million sales mark. As far as lifetime sales are concerned, the Switch has reached more than 8.2 million sales since its launch a year ago. To that end, eBay is hosting a UK-exclusive, one-time use coupon that grants 15% off any purchase made in 20 different categories, including Video Games and Video Game Consoles.
