Nintendo Switch Sells 10M Units in Nine Months

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

The GameCube sold 21.7 million units in its seven-year lifespan, meaning if the Switch continues on its current trajectory - which is certainly unlikely - it will have overtaken the GameCube in under two years since its release.

The diversity of playing options the console provides is just one factor as to the Switch's popularity. Months later, the little device managed to secure a spot in enough households after worldwide sales topped 10 million units.

Along with the fact it is something new and different, it hasn't hurt having well-received first-party titles such as Super Mario Odyssey, Arms, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Fils-Aime attributed the success of Nintendo Switch ($300) to its portability, as well as its game offerings. Now, Nintendo is not only the darling of the industry once more, but reporting strong financials as well-the 10 million in consoles sales is the most for the company since 2011. Being able to play on the big TV or the consoles in-built screen on the go, there are no home squabbles with this one. It's a pretty incredible feat, especially because it's set to outsell the Wii U's 13.5 million lifetime sales by the end of 2017.

The numbers are especially promising for Nintendo, which experienced severe supply chain issues during the console's first few months and struggled to meet demand. 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. And with titles like a proper Metroid or Super Smash Bros. still in the pipeline, the potential for software sales on the Switch has not even come close to being fully fulfilled. "The pace is one of the fastest in our own history and in gaming history".
