If you’ve been following the video game news this year, you’re probably tired of hearing stories about how the Switch has become the best-selling console since the Sliced Bread 64. With Nintendo announcing this morning that its console has been sold. 10 million units in less than nine months– before the first holiday season is even complete, to boot – we thought we’d skip the cumbersome analysis and give you some pertinent numbers that put the Switch’s current sales into context. As far as recent consoles go, sales of the Switch so far have put it in quite a rare business.
(Note that for most of these comparisons to other consoles, the period spans a full holiday season after a mid-November launch).
