The Switch is now officially the fastest-selling console in U.S. history
05 January 2018, 01:57 | Gina Pena
It has been nearly 10 months since its launch and the sales of the console are still pretty good.
In an announcement that likely surprises exactly no one, Nintendo confirmed that the Switch is now the fastest-selling console in USA history, thanks to data compiled via internal sales info.
In keeping with Nintendo tradition, the Nintendo Switch looked like a bit of a risk when it launched in March 2017. For comparison, the Wii U console has sold only 13.6 million units since its launch in 2012. The Switch had some stock issues earlier in the year, but it seems Nintendo's work to ramp up production is paying off as the console continues to sell well.
Meanwhile, Sony is yet to release North American holiday sales figures for the PlayStation 4, which sold 14.4 million units worldwide over its first year of availability. The company's hottest product of 2016 was a $60 console loaded with 30-year-old NES games. Its innovative design allows it to function as both a TV console and a portable console. Super Mario Odyssey was the Switch's best-selling game during its first calendar year, and more than 60% of Switch owners in the U.S. purchased the game (which translates out to about 2.9 million copies). The detachable controllers allow two players to compete or collaborate without the need for additional hardware.
Super Mario Odyssey is the most popular Switch game, selling 2 million units in the first three days - thereby giving it the award of the fastest selling Mario title in history.
