Nintendo Switch is the fastest selling console in the USA

Nintendo DS is a lovely 32 bit-dual screen handheld gaming console that came out more than a decade ago and there was no new generation we had heard about recently. "The home console that players can take wherever they go launched March 3, 2017, and in 10 months has sold more than 4.8 million units in the United States" According to Nintendo that makes it the fastest selling console in the U.S. ever.

This is an impressive feat, even if you consider the Switch to be handheld device.

"Fans across the country have experienced the joy of playing their favorite games at home or on the go", Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's president, said in a statement. 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. The PS2 now has the world record for console sales, selling an impressive 155 million units during its lifetime. Not only did we get two of the finest entries in their respective franchises with Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey, but pitch-perfect sequels like Splatoon 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 managed to ensnare far wider audiences that were available on the doomed Wii U.

After Nintendo Switch, the house of Kyoto will probably not release a new console anytime soon, but a leak coming out from a Reddit user through a not so true-looking magazine shows that Nintendo still has some space to build a Switch DS.

If sales continue to be strong for the Switch, it coule reach the top 10 selling consoles of all time in the next few years. The Switch sold 10 million units in only 9 months and it exceeded Nintendo's expectations by a lot.
