NVIDIA CEO talks up Switch, why partnering with Nintendo made sense
Posted 2 weeks ago by Brian in News, Switch | 10 Comments
Nintendo partnered with NVIDIA on the main technology behind Switch. Each unit features a chipset from the Tegra line.
During its latest financial call, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang was asked if the company is interested in pursuing consoles further in light of Switch’s success. That led him to talk up Switch, stating:
Consoles is not really a business to us. It’s a business to them. And we’re selected to work on these consoles. And if it makes sense and the strategic alignment is great and we’re in a position to be able to do it, because the opportunity cost of building a game console is quite high. The number of engineers who know how to build computing platforms like this – and in the case of the Nintendo Switch, it’s just an incredible console that fits in such a small form factor. And it could both be a mobile gaming device as well as a console gaming device. It’s just really quite amazing, and they just did an amazing job.

More on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s debut in Japan and Switch sales
Posted 2 weeks ago by Brian in News, Switch | 62 Comments
Now that the Japanese holidays are over (specifically Golden Week), sales trackers aside from Famitsu have delivered sales numbers for the week of April 24. Both share more information about Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s big launch.
According to Media Create, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sold 285,000 copies up through April 30. That is down slightly from the original game on Wii U (released May 2014 at 326,000 copies first week). However, considering Wii U sold a total of 1,765,000 units as of the game’s release, when compared to Switch’s 777,000 units, there’s a difference of one million in the spread. Considering Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a port of the Wii U version with added features, Media Create feels that the initial results are favorable.
