Switch Is The Fastest Selling Console Ever

Nintendo has announced today that the Nintendo Switch has become the fastest-selling console in U.S. history with more than 4.8 million units in the United States alone in its first ten months.

Thats the highest total for the first ten months of any home video game system in U.S. history, even surpassing Nintendo’s own Wii system which was the previous record holder with more than 4 million units sold during the same timeframe.

More than 60% of Nintendo Switch owners have “Super Mario Odyssey”, and over 55% own “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” both of which have become two of the highest-rated games in history. “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe” is also owned by over 50% and “Splatoon 2” is owned by over 20%.
