Nintendo Switch Becomes Fastest Selling Home Console in the US

07 January 2018, 02:09 | Megan Pierce

When Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch many gamers and analysts thought that it will fail and it will become another Wii U. No third party support and poor design. This is an incredible feat from Nintendo, and really just goes to show how poorly the Wii U did in its homeland. Fortunately for Nintendo, those people were completely wrong and the Nintendo Switch did very well.

The Switch has sold 4.8 million units in the United States in its first 10 months on the market, beating the previous all-time best seller - Nintendo's Wii - which sold 4 million US units in the first 10 months following its release. Recently we heard that the Nintendo Switch has been selling faster than Sony's PS 2 in Japan.

In early December, the company said the Nintendo Switch had reached 10 million sales worldwide, and expects to hit the 14 million mark by March.

The Switch previously set a Nintendo record for fastest-selling console during its first two days on the market.

But the news only gets better for the maker of Mario Bros.

"This solution will work on ANY Nintendo Switch console regardless of the now installed firmware, and will be completely future proof". Those games, all of which are published by Nintendo, have proven to be so popular that each one is owned by at least half of US Switch owners.
