Nintendo has announced that the highly coveted Nintendo Switch has managed to sell 10 million consoles worldwide, with the feat surprisingly being accomplished slower in comparison to the PS4 – though the PS4 never had as drastic of issues regarding shortages.
Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé commented on the milestone:
“As you can see in people’s living rooms, on a plane or riding the subway, fans all over the world can enjoy playing Nintendo Switch wherever they go. The response from fans has been great, and we’re doing our very best to satisfy demand during the holiday shopping season.”
Sony reached 10 million sales with their PS4 only 270 days after its launch, the Nintendo Switch however accomplished this 284 days post-launch; the minuscule difference seemingly rather negligible, though other extraneous factors such as shortages have not been taken into consideration.
Despite the abundance of sales, it seems buyers are not particularly interested in the Switch’s portability (which was touted as one of the system’s central features)…
