- Nintendo said on Tuesday that the Switch console has sold more than 10 million units
- The Switch launched in March of this year and supply was initially constrained
- Its unique form factor and attractive game library likely contributed to its success
It's slightly surprising given Nintendo's last console wasn't as popular, and because supply was initially limited at launch.
The Nintendo Switch is unlike gaming consoles that game before it. Users can hook it up to a TV for a traditional experience, or take it on the go and play games on the Switch's display. It has gained popularity thanks to hit games such as Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, both of which were hyped ahead of the console's launch.
The Nintendo Switch also attracts an on-the-go gaming base who might not always have time to sit at home on the couch and play. It allows users to pick up where they left off on their morning commute, on a plane, or anywhere else.
The Nintendo Switch costs $299.99.
