Nintendo Switch has hit yet another huge sales milestone

Holiday Wish Guide Gifts for Nintendo Fans from Budding Gamers to Experienced Players Nintendo Switch has hit yet another huge sales milestone

Nintendo is boasting that its Switch hybrid console has sold 10 million units worldwide in the first 10 months of release, helped by Black Friday promotions. Nintendo has claimed, according to the report, that the projected sales for the first year could be to the tune of 16.7 million which would be more than 3 million units sold in the first year of Nintendo Wii.

Nintendo is aiming for number one!

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.

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?

Nintendo has struggled to keep up with demand for the Switch.

Nintendo Switch has hit yet another huge sales milestone

If there's one thing we can point to that's likely responsible for the unmitigated success of the Switch, it's the software lineup. The company initially expected to sell about 10 million units in year one - now, Nintendo expects to sell over 14 million by March 2018.

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. You can play it at home on the big screen just like any conventional game console. 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.

Nintendo also has a strong library of titles that are only available on the Switch with games like Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as well as Mario Kart 8 only offered on the Switch.

It will be interesting to see just how well the Switch will do this holiday season.
