Nintendo Switch fastest selling console of all time — Tech Trendspotting

It's official - Nintendo has hit the jackpot, with recent reports revealing the company's Switch is the fastest selling video gaming console in United States history.

Since the system became available on March 3, 2017, Nintendo has sold almost 5 million units in the U.S. That 10-month pace surpasses the previous record holder, the Nintendo Wii, which came out in 2006.

With titles like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey out on store shelves, it's clear Nintendo is going to be able to keep up the momentum with solid games and system-sellers that get people to pull the trigger on the Switch in general. Beyond that, more than 50% of Switch players have Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and around 20% have Splatoon 2. It beats the Wii, which previously held the record having sold 4 million units in that time. Microsoft and Sony have not yet released holiday sales numbers for their consoles, but they are not expected to outperform the Switch.

By the time manufacturing ceased in January 2017, it tallied 13.56m; the Switch is all but guaranteed to post at least that much by March.
