Nintendo has had an wonderful year and it keeps getting better as they have just revealed that more than 10 million Nintendo Switch units have been sold worldwide. The impressive part about hitting the milestone is that the console has only been available for nine months. According to Ars Technica, The Nintendo Wii sold 13.17 million units within the first 10.5 months of its release.

Nintendo is aiming for number one! Pretty much every major Nintendo franchise has seen a release, but these releases have been slightly staggered along with other excellent games to keep the hype at peak levels.

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

If you're unsure of just how great this achievement is for Nintendo, the Switch has sold roughly the same amount of systems in approximately the same amount of time as the PlayStation 4 did following its launch in 2013. Within the first year of sale, the Wii had smashed 20 million consoles shipped, jumping up by a whopping seven million units sold between the nine-month to one-year mark.

Big numbers for Nintendo Switch. In that instance you simply lift the Switch unit out of its dock and you can continue your game on the go without any interruption. Fils-Aime said it's possible that the Switch will top the first-year sales of the Wii, if momentum remain strong through the holiday-shopping season. Three titles have been purchased by more than 50% of Switch owners: "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" - which won game of the year at the 2017 Game Awards - "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe", and "Super Mario Odyssey".

It will be interesting to see just how well the Switch will do this holiday season.

Of course, the fact that you can actually buy one hurts nothing.
