But looking at 3DS sales more broadly shows the system continuing to find an audience in Switch's shadow. "So Switch is one update behind other consoles, which are slightly behind PC,"Starbreeze said in a statement to Polygon". That's down just nine percent from the 6.42 million in sales over the same nine-month period in 2016, before the Switch was available.
Further, the developer stated that the PS4 and Xbox One received one more update after that, which came towards the end of 2017.
In the combined-revenue software chart, National Basketball Association 2K18 was the top ranking game with a Switch release, checking in at #6.
Further, Starbreeze noted that PS4 and Xbox One versions are nearly the same as the PC version, while the Switch is 'close behind.' Starbreeze, however, assured that there are plans for future content updates for Nintendo Switch. Nintendo's support for the 3DS - which debuted in 2011 - is slowing down as it focuses on the home console/portable hybrid Switch, which has been a big success for Nintendo since launching in March 2017. The news is meeting a crowd of Reddit skeptics that don't seem to believe the game will be updated after it's launch on Switch.
Eventually, the community concluded that the Switch version is running some version of update 117, which would put it well behind the PC version - the game's most updated. NPD analyst Mat Piscatella confirmed that the console managed to sell more units than the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but the gap between the best selling and the third best in dollar sales is only 3 percent.
"Also, I don't expect any patches for the Switch Version and nobody who buys it should either".
The Nintendo Switch version of "Payday 2" is set to be released on February 27 in the United States.
