10 million Switch units sold worldwide in just nine months

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

That's a dramatic turn around compared to the Wii U, and means that the Switch is on course to surpass its unloved predecessor in well under a year. The Wii shifted 100 million units throughout its lifetime, and while the Switch is certainly performing well, it isn't quite on that level just yet. Nintendo's main competitors, Sony and Microsoft, released their most recent game consoles - the PS4 and Xbox One - on November 15, 2013 and November 22, 2013 respectively.

Considering these brilliant statistics, it's clear to see that Nintendo Switch is here to stay.

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. For reference, the Wii U was a failure for Nintendo, accumulating only 13.5 million sales in four years.

According to Game, its United Kingdom and Spanish stores saw an attachment rate of three games to every Switch sold, which is just slightly below what the Wii saw in the same period.

10 million Switch units sold worldwide in just nine months

According to an interview with Japanese publication Nikkei (via industry analyst Dr. Serkan Toto), Resident Evil, Street Fighter, and Mega Man publisher Capcom has desires to port even more games over to Nintendo's new hybrid console, the Switch.

"Thanks to you, Nintendo Switch has sold 10 million units worldwide in just 9 months!" No one would have ever thought that Nintendo will get this milestone, ever. Pretty much every major Nintendo franchise has seen a release, but these releases have been slightly staggered along with other excellent games to keep the hype at peak levels. For under £300 brand new with a game, the Switch was just the right price to be affordable to many.

Whether it can beat the PlayStation 2's 155 million total, which made it the best-selling console of all time, depends on how long the current generation lasts.
