Over 7 million Nintendo Switch consoles shipped ahead of Christmas

200 Titles Now Available in Nintendo Switch eShop

To put that in perspective, the Wii U only sold 13.56 million over its entire lifetime. The company raised its full-year sales forecast to 14 million units, up from the earlier outlook of 10 million.

The signs are already promising.

Flash Flood Watch in effect through late tonight
Waves of downpours will be the story through the afternoon and into the evening as the wind will continue to pick up as well. We're forecasting this wind to remain strong through Monday , but it should subside later Monday and Monday night.

In the same interview, Fils-Aime admitted that the latest Nintendo Switch update only looked to enable third-party accessories for the hybrid console. Amid outsized demand from makers of smartphones and electrified vehicles, the company is seeing "intermittent shortages of various parts", even transistors and other commodity-grade components, said a Nintendo procurement executive. Key to that may be overcoming whatever issue it is that is constraining supply on Nintendo's side.

Nintendo said it now expects operating profit for the current financial year of 120 billion yen ($1.06 billion), almost double the 65 billion yen ($572 million) it predicted three months ago.

Alphabet delivers big earnings beat in third quarter
Alphabet has a consensus rating of Buy and a consensus target price of $1,083.02. (NASDAQ:GOOG) opened at 1019.27 on Friday. The average estimate of 17 analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research was for earnings of $8.43 per share.

Switch owners will be able to download Rocket League via Nintendo's eShop for $20. Super Smash Bros. players are still using GameCube controllers to play the fighting game, which is the reason why Nintendo created an adapter to allow the controller to function on the Nintendo Wii U in the first place.

Nintendo attempted that feat with the Wii U, whose primary controller came with an embedded touchscreen. The rise in the revenue prediction has been put down to the increase of sales of the Nintendo Switch console.

Oppose Madrid: Sacked Catalan leader
A band took to the stage and the crowd defiantly began singing and dancing to music, shouting: "We are not moving". The measures early on Saturday came after the Catalan parliament voted to declare independence on Friday.

"We've boosted Switch production to meet strong demand as it was hard for customers to buy the consoles at retail stores", said Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima, according to Reuters. Nintendo said it sold 22m games in the period, with shooter Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe proving particularly popular. As the holidays draw closer, Nintendo wants to ensure folks who want a Switch can purchase one.
