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

Also aided by strong November 22-26 sales, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system surpassed lifetime sales of 2.5 million.

The demand resulted in over $250 million in Nintendo products purchased by shoppers from Thanksgiving Through Cyber Monday, according to the company's internal sales figures. Nintendo haven't released specific Thanksgiving weekend Switch sales numbers, but the system had it best-selling week ever, and has now sold 8.2 million units in North America.

Meanwhile, the 3DS, NES Classic, and SNES Classic continue to generate a steady stream of cash for Nintendo.

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.

It's no secret that the holiday season is a big time for everyone in the gaming industry, with Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo offering huge deals on each of their consoles. It seems they might not be too anxious though as Nintendo President says they sell the bulk of their annual revenue within the three month holiday season alone. Nintendo may have won the online battle, but I have a feeling Sony may have won the overall war.
