Nintendo’s next home console is set for an explosive start.
That’s according to component suppliers for the NX cited byDigiTimes, who have pegged first-year shipments for the new hardware at between 10 and 12 million.
That is, of course, if the mysterious new machine launches when it is rumoured to – with DigiTimes formerly slating it for a July 2016 release based on the production schedules of anonymous ‘supply chain partners’.
Controversial manufacturer Foxconn – which also builds the PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, iPhone and iPad – is unsurprisingly also expected to produce the NX.
As a point of reference, as of October 2015, lifetime Wii U sales stood at just shy of 11 million.
Meanwhile, PS4 has just passed 30 million global sales.
The last figure on Xbox One comes from November 2014, when Microsoft's console had 10 million units shipped. The platform holder has since announced it will not reveal Xbox One sales going forward.
