Nintendo Switch has hit yet another huge sales milestone

Nintendo has given us an update on the latter angle, revealing that the system has shifted over ten million units since launch just nine months ago in early March.

The original Nintendo Wii, launched in 2006, sold more than 100 million units and remains the company's best-selling console to date.

Of course, the fact that you can actually buy one hurts nothing. 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.

If you're unsure of just how great this achievement is for Nintendo, the Switch has sold roughly the same amount of systems in approximately the same amount of time as the PlayStation 4 did following its launch in 2013.

To play it, gamers insert a slim tablet into a handheld device that has controllers on each side. It will automatically transition to portable mode when it's lifted from the dock.

For starters, the Switch is a simple concept that's well executed. As a outcome, the publisher wants to port over games to Switch that were previously not available on Nintendo consoles.

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.

There are a few simple reasons that the Switch has been such a smash hit, whereas the Wii U was a flop. The Nintendo Switch carries a list price of $300.

The diversity of playing options the console provides is just one factor as to the Switch's popularity. If the company is able to maintain its momentum through the holiday shopping season, Nintendo could very well set some new records.
