Nintendo Switch Reaches the 10 Million Sold Milestone

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

Nintendo has sold more than 10 million Switch consoles worldwide as it aims to top first-year sales of the original Wii. I guess to even it out however, the Switch released worldwide, while the PS4 hadn't released in Japan just yet. Hopefully well see Rockstar bring over Grand Theft Auto V to the Switch so we can truly play it anywhere.

The video game company has wholly disregarded the new consoles that their longtime business rivals, Sony and Microsoft, released and continued to focus on the Nintendo Switch. Chief amongst them being Game of the Year victor, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. You can purchase both $299 Nintendo Switch on Amazon.com. While this is nice for portable mode, since it's the screen's native resolution, this isn't as nice for docked mode. For under £300 brand new with a game, the Switch was just the right price to be affordable to many. That's a pretty impressive milestone to reach in just nine months.

Outside of Zelda, we've seen Super Mario Odyssey earn itself numerous flawless scores.

In regards to the company's remarks on Switch games that were previously unavailable on the console, fans could also see the likes of Devil May Cry or even Dino Crisis grace the machine in the near future. These include the award winning titles The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. 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.

While the PS4 had still shifted more units during the same time period, it also launched just before the Holiday season, with the Switch now coming up to its first Christmas while on the market.

Speaking to Variety, Nintendo America president Reggie Fils-Aime said it was possible the Switch would beat first-year sales of the Wii, but only if it continues to sell well through the Holiday season. You can find the Nintendo Switch in stock at other online shops as well. Do you own one or plan to get one?
