Nintendo Switch is now the fastest-selling game console in USA history

Nintendo Switch is now the fastest-selling game console in USA history

Nintendo (NTDOY) has sold at least 10 million units over the past 9 months. For comparison, the Wii U console has sold only 13.6 million units since its launch in 2012. Today Nintendo announced that the Switch is the fastest-selling home video game console in USA history, soundly thrashing the previous record held by Nintendo's own Wii console. Those games themselves managed to accrue some impressive review scores and sales numbers as well, meaning the Switch is and will likely remain a powerhouse in terms of moving units and making mountains of cash. The company's most recent quarterly report showed a profit of $209 million, a welcome change from the regularly reported losses in previous quarters.

In keeping with Nintendo tradition, the Nintendo Switch looked like a bit of a risk when it launched in March 2017. While I don't own any of the current gen consoles, the Switch would be my choice with the libraries of games available.

The Nintendo Switch made lots of people happy.




Given the flop that was the ill-marketed "Wii U" console and add to the fact that engineers took a huge risk by employing an innovative dock/portable design and you can't help but do a giant Super Mario leap of joy.

The classic "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" and "Doom" are both due hit the Switch this year.
