Nintendo Switch Tops 10 Million Units Sold

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

Even Sony, their biggest competitor thinks that Nintendo Switch is not a console that should be overlooked sales-wise.

While the console's production has been hampered by component shortages, it soon hit 4.7 million units worldwide and then, most recently, struck 7.63 million units worldwide.

By coincidence, Sony also recently announced up-to-date figures for the PlayStation 4 (including PS4 Pro), which now stands at 70.6 million worldwide after nearly exactly four years. Most recently the Nintendo Switch was also the most ordered item online in the U.S. on Black Friday. For reference, the Wii U was a failure for Nintendo, accumulating only 13.5 million sales in four years.

The original plan for Nintendo is to ship 14 million Nintendo Switch consoles by the end of this financial year.

Nintendo Switch Tops 10 Million Units Sold

Nintendo Switch reaches the 10 million units sold since its launch on March 3, 2017, with award-winning titles including the already available The Legend of Zelda and the new Super Mario Odyssey and further new gaming experiences coming in 2018.

Reasons for the Nintendo Switch success!

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. According to Nintendo's Polish distributor, the development team of the third entry in the series is pretty much the same as that of the previous game. Nintendo successfully released at a point where there was a major console void in the market.

Sales of the hybrid-console, which lets gamers play on their television or on the road, have been brisk this holiday season. For under £300 brand new with a game, the Switch was just the right price to be affordable to many.
