Putting Nintendo Switch's 10 million sales in context

In fact, the biggest contributor to Switch's slowing sales is Nintendo itself. Released this past March, it had sold 7.63 million units globally through the end of September. Users can then pop the tablet out of the mobile "Switch Console" and plug it into a "Switch Dock" base-station that allows for play on a TV.

Solid Black Friday promotions helped Nintendo cross the 10 million units sold mark.

In regards to the company's remarks on Switch games that were previously unavailable on the console, fans could also see the likes of Devil May Cry or even Dino Crisis grace the machine in the near future. Nintendo is clearly onto a victor with the Switch and its mammoth sales growth goes to show it. Just one year ago, WiiU sales were abysmal, the value of stock in the company was falling fast, and the company was reporting a $49 million dollar loss.

The Nintendo Switch, or How Nintendo Got Its Groove Back, is now in the hands of about 10 million people worldwide.

To date it is estimate that 13.56-million Wii U units have been sold since its launch in November 2012. Whereas PlayStation 4 owners don't have much incentive to pick up an Xbox One as well (or vice versa), there are strong arguments for buying a Switch in addition to a PlayStation 4 (or an Xbox One, or a PC).

The other major reason for Nintendo's massive success with the Switch is a killer game line-up.

Secondly, The Nintendo Switch could be plugged into their home monitor like a Nintendo Wii U.

As 2018 approaches that game library isnt slowing down either as games like Kirby Star Allies, Bayonetta, Bayonetta 2, Wolfenstein II, Mega Man 11, Project Octopath Traveler from Square Enix, Shovel Knight: King of Cards and many more are heading to the Switch.
