Nintendo Switch Worldwide Sales Surpass 10 Million

That's a dramatic turn around compared to the Wii U, and means that the Switch is on course to surpass its unloved predecessor in well under a year.

With more than 5.4 million community members on the main PC digital distribution platform Steam, PAYDAY 2 have had more than 160 paid and free updates since its release in 2013. It has even, since its launch, consistently outsold its more powerful rivals at PlayStation and Xbox. The Nintendo Switch carries a list price of $300. Nintendo's current projections predict the sale of 16.7 million individual Switch units, once the holiday sales season is over.

The Nintendo Switch has now sold over 10 million units worldwide since launching in March 2017. Nintendo Switch is the first console that not only connects to the home TV, but also turns into a portable gaming system, and allows players to use their favorite games wherever, when and with whomever you want.

The sales figure comes from Nintendo's own estimates, and inches near the 13 million lifetime sales of the company's Wii U misfire. That's a pretty impressive milestone to reach in just nine months.

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.

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. "That helps drive sell-through of the console".

It's anyone's guess as to what these games may be, though it's not totally out of the question that the Switch could see the likes of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard in the near future.
