Nintendo Switch Sales: New Console Sold 10 Million Units In 9 Months

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

In October, Nintendo increased Switch shipment projections for the year ending March 2018, pushing the estimate up from 10 million to 14 million units. After the Wii U's dismal failure, many had very little hope for Nintendo's next system.

Nintendo employees are focusing on addressing the increasing popularity of Switch by making sure that there are enough tablets to meet the consumers' need. The PS4 and Xbox, despite recent re-releases with 4k support, have just entered their Twilight years. You can play games anytime, anywhere and with anyone. In fact, the biggest contributor to Switch's slowing sales is Nintendo itself.

There's an old adage in video games: Never count Nintendo out.

Nintendo Switch Sales: New Console Sold 10 Million Units In 9 Months

Therefore, the 10 million sales, as reported by BusinessInsider, might surprise many, but nearly on release, I was convinced that Nintendo was back on top with a victor here and you know what? We will keep you updated on the games as soon as more come in on them, so stay tuned for all the latest news. Nintendo's strategy coming in was to load up on [games], such as Mario and Zelda, which help carry hardware sales for several holidays. 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.

"As you can see in people's living rooms, on a plane or riding the subway, fans all over the world can enjoy playing Nintendo Switch wherever they go", said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's President and COO.

The console became an instant hit when it launched in early March, and it has remained a sold-out device throughout the year in some markets. If not, do you plan on picking one up now that it is a success and third parties are rushing to put their games on it?
