Nintendo's Switch is a Smashing Success, Ships 10 Million Units

With the holiday season still being in full swing, it's likely Nintendo will still be seeing their latest console fly off the shelves into January.

Starbreeze Studios have unveiled the release date for Payday 2 on the Nintendo Switch.

The Switch still has a long way to go, though, if it wants to challenge Nintendo's best-selling home console, the Wii; which sold more than 100 million units over its lifetime. The PS4 and Xbox, despite recent re-releases with 4k support, have just entered their Twilight years.

Earlier this year, Nintendo Switch owners were surprised to learn that Starbreeze's action-packed bank heist multiplayer game, Payday 2, would be making its way to the Nintendo Switch.

While the PS4 had still shifted more units during the same time period, it also launched just before the Holiday season, with the Switch now coming up to its first Christmas while on the market.

Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 launch on Nintendo Switch on February 16th. In comparison, it took Sony's PlayStation 4 about the same amount of time to reach the 10 million sales mark after it was released.

Looking over to the Switch game department, the device will gain much more titles to come that will obviously expand its library of games, which will most definitely attract more gamers and fans alike to move more units.

Reggie Fils-Aime, president and COO of Nintendo of America, said Nintendo's line-up of self-published games has also fueled Switch sales. It is one of the most highly rated games in history, and at one point was actually outselling the Switch itself. And here we are in the midst of said holiday sales and Switches are still flying off of shelves.
