Nintendo Switch has hit yet another huge sales milestone

13 December 2017

Nintendo has sold more than 10 million Switch consoles worldwide as it aims to top first-year sales of the original Wii. The other has to be the impressive catalogue of software that was published within the system's first nine months on the market.

Nintendo Switch has hit yet another huge sales milestone

Nintendo thinks that the success of the Switch is thanks in part to the hybrid nature of the console. Just one year ago, WiiU sales were abysmal, the value of stock in the company was falling fast, and the company was reporting a $49 million dollar loss. What makes the Nintendo Switch stand out is that the device is two-fold. The Switch is expected to outsell The Wii U (which only managed to sell 13.56 million units across four years) before its one year anniversary in March 2018. Now, Nintendo is not only the darling of the industry once more, but reporting strong financials as well-the 10 million in consoles sales is the most for the company since 2011.

If you want to play it at home, you simply drop the console into the dock that's already connected to your TV. In that instance you simply lift the Switch unit out of its dock and you can continue your game on the go without any interruption.

Nikki Haley Says Trump's Accusers Should Be Heard
Before Mr Trump won the 2016 presidential election, multiple women accused him of unwanted kissing or groping. Three members of Congress said last week that they will resign over misconduct allegations.

The Switch's most popular game, "Super Mario Odyssey", sold 2 million units in its first three days, making it the fastest-selling title in the history of Mario's long and illustrious career.

It will be interesting to see just how well the Switch will do this holiday season. The Switch is likely to surpass that early next year - maybe even once Christmas sales have been totted up. If not, do you plan on picking one up now that it is a success and third parties are rushing to put their games on it?
