Nintendo Switch sales soar, as share prices reach new high
Nintendo Switch sales have contributed to a huge rise in Nintendo share prices.
While this is undoutbedly good news for Nintendo, it might be bad news for stock hunters trying to get their hands on consoles.
Nintendo share prices are up by 102% year-on-year, which has helped the company reach its highest closing level since 2010.
It's a situation that's likely to improve for Nintendo, as the company gets ready to launch its Nintendo Switch Online Service.
Similar to Xbox Live and PSN, the subscription service will net the company even more revenue, as users pay an annual fee to access online multiplayer and other bonuses.
Even though it might make it hard to get stock, more sales will lead to increased backing from publishers, which means we might see more third-party blockbusters appear on the console.

Beenox recently posted a tweet featuring members of the Canadian army, while one member of the studio is seen wearing a Call of Duty WW2 T-shirt.
Beenox previously handled Nintendo versions of older Activision games, which has led to speculation that a Call of Duty port is on the cards.
This is backed up by the fact that Call of Duty account holders can once again link to their Nintendo accounts on the official website.
Fans were previously only able to link PSN, Xbox Live and Steam accounts, so it's strange that Nintendo is back on the list.
There's even speculation that something will be announced during E3, although nothing has been confirmed so far.
It would be a massive vote of confidence for the Nintendo Switch, which looks like it will miss out on a Destiny 2 port.
Bungie recently said that a Nintendo Switch port was unrealistic given that Destiny 2 is an online-only game.
