The Nintendo Switch Has Reached 10 Million in Sales

Holiday Wish Guide Gifts for Nintendo Fans from Budding Gamers to Experienced Players

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.

Therefore, the 10 million sales, as reported by BusinessInsider, might surprise many, but nearly on release, I was convinced that Nintendo was back on top with a victor here and you know what?

The Nintendo Switch was unleashed to the masses back in March.

Currently Nintendo can't produce enough Switch units to appease demand, with Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals selling out within two minutes of going on sale.

The Nintendo Switch Has Reached 10 Million in Sales

Nintendo has had an incredible year and it keeps getting better as they have just revealed that more than 10 million Nintendo Switch units have been sold worldwide. The only consoles to outsell the Switch in their first 10 months, according to Ars Technica are PlayStations 2 and 4 and the Nintendo Wii. That being said, when the PS4 reached the end of its 9-month mark it had the holiday season to boost up its numbers - while the Switch still has the rest of December to get through.

On a brighter note, the Switch has seen extremely high attach rates, with more physical games being attached to console sales than during the Wii's launch and heyday - although that's probably partly because Wii Sports was bundled with every Wii sold. "That helps drive sell-through of the console". 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. This is a realistic goal, given the fact that the company is counting on this year's holiday sales for a big boost.

Earlier this year, Nintendo Switch owners were surprised to learn that Starbreeze's action-packed bank heist multiplayer game, Payday 2, would be making its way to the Nintendo Switch.
