10 million Switch units sold worldwide in just nine months

Nintendo, on 12 December announced, that it has sold over 10 million units of its Switch console worldwide since it was launched nine months ago.

On the backs of a clever piece of hardware and some of the most inspired titles in the Nintendo lineage, the company is riding high on their success.

The original plan for Nintendo is to ship 14 million Nintendo Switch consoles by the end of this financial year.

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?

10 million Switch units sold worldwide in just nine months

Starbreeze Studios have unveiled the release date for Payday 2 on the Nintendo Switch. At some point in 2018 as well Nintendo will launch their full online network for the Switch which should hopefully bring more excitement to the platform as more features are revealed over the coming weeks and months. Now, Nintendo is not only the darling of the industry once more, but reporting strong financials as well-the 10 million in consoles sales is the most for the company since 2011. And the system's ability to let players enjoy games on both TVs and on the go has captured gamer interest. That system sold 13.6 million in just over five years. However, you can also take the Switch with you thanks to its own integrated screen and use it as a portable.

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.

Are you looking forward to Payday 2 on Switch?

Of course, the fact that you can actually buy one hurts nothing. Even Sony, their biggest competitor thinks that Nintendo Switch is not a console that should be overlooked sales-wise.
