Nintendo Switch Has Sold 10 Million Units to Date

Nintendo Switch Has Sold 10 Million Units to Date

With a new Nintendo console already having this many solid games and decent third-party support, it's safe to say that Nintendo has corrected the failures of the Wii U.

If you're unsure of just how great this achievement is for Nintendo, the Switch has sold roughly the same amount of systems in approximately the same amount of time as the PlayStation 4 did following its launch in 2013. At some point in 2018 as well Nintendo will launch their full online network for the Switch which should hopefully bring more excitement to the platform as more features are revealed over the coming weeks and months. Nintendo's current projections predict the sale of 16.7 million individual Switch units, once the holiday sales season is over. This is an impressive milestone just 9 months after the introduction of Nintendo's new flagship console. For comparison, Nintendo only sold 13.6 million Wii U consoles during its five-year lifespan.

Nintendo Switch Has Sold 10 Million Units to Date

Reasons for the Nintendo Switch success! Nintendo Switch is the first console that not only connects to the home TV, but also turns into a portable gaming system, and allows players to use their favorite games wherever, when and with whomever you want. It also means the Switch has outsold Sega's Dreamcast and Saturn. Even taking inflation into account, the Wii was still a solid £50 cheaper than the Switch.

With the holiday season underway, the Switch (See it on Amazon) is bidding fair to set a historical record, even compared with other, extremely popular consoles. It should become easier to find for the holiday season thanks to increased production, but still, getting a Switch has been fairly hard since it came out. For under £300 brand new with a game, the Switch was just the right price to be affordable to many.
