The Nintendo Switch has only been on the market for 10 months, but is already the fastest selling Nintendo console in U.S. history. The console has already sold 4.8 million units in the United States, outpacing other popular Nintendo systems like the Wii and Nintendo 64. It seems the system will surpass the Wii U sometime in 2018 in total units sold worldwide. There are plenty of games releasing on the Switch this year, giving the console some potential steam for further sales. In fact just last week Nintendo’s current president commented that the company has a goal of reaching 20 million Switch units sold by the end of 2018. What are your thoughts, have you purchased a Switch yet?
