Putting Nintendo Switch's 10 million sales in context
13 December, 2017, 00:18
Last week, Platinum Games and Nintendo confirmed that not only Bay9onetta 3 is in development for Nintendo Switch, but also that the first two entries in the series are getting released on the console.
NintendoSwitch sales have topped 10 million, putting it on track with the PS4's launch year and even threatening to overtake Sony's console as we approach the Christmas period. This is an impressive milestone just 9 months after the introduction of Nintendo's new flagship console.
There's even a good chance the Switch will outsell the Wii U's entire lifetime total, of less than 14 million, in just 12 months. The Switch is listed as being for-sale at multiple outlets according to NowInStock.net, and while many of these deals are bundles, they run the gamut from $299 to $359.
There's no doubt that the Nintendo Switch will bring its current success into the coming year 2018. And here we are in the midst of said holiday sales and Switches are still flying off of shelves.
The lineup of Nintendo-published games also has fueled fueling Switch sales, Fils-Aime said.
In case you somehow dont know about the Switch, it is the new hybrid console for Nintendo that can be played on your television or on the go. Chief amongst them being Game of the Year victor, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
"The fact that we reached 10 million units sold on a global basis and we're not fully through the holidays is unprecedented territory for Nintendo", Reggie Fils-Aime, president and COO of Nintendo America, told CNN Tech. With the growth of digital download services since the Wii's launch, it's likely that Switch owners already own a lot more games than their Wii counterparts may have ever done.
