Nintendo Switch Is The Fastest-Selling Video Game Console Ever In The US

Business Wire has announced that the Nintendo Switch has become the fastest-selling console in US history. In the 1 months since the Switch launched it has sold 4.8 million units in the US, surpassing the original Wii system which sold more than 4 million in the same timeframe.

This continues to show that it isn't the horsepower of a system that sells consoles, it's the games. Something that Microsoft seems to have forgotten with this generation. While I don't own any of the current gen consoles, the Switch would be my choice with the libraries of games available.

"Fans across the country have experienced the joy of playing their favorite games at home or on the go," said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s President and COO. "Now that many more people have received Nintendo Switch systems for the holidays, we look forward to bringing them fun new surprises in 2018 and beyond."
