The plucky portable home console had sold 2.74 million units worldwide in March alone, to become the fastest-selling console in Nintendo's history. Combined with sales for the first few weeks after the device's release, technically in the prior fiscal year, and the forecast would mean 16.7 million units moved in the first year and change. At some point in 2018 as well Nintendo will launch their full online network for the Switch which should hopefully bring more excitement to the platform as more features are revealed over the coming weeks and months.

Nintendo employees are focusing on addressing the increasing popularity of Switch by making sure that there are enough tablets to meet the consumers' need. This estimate was raised from 10 million units in October, and would put the Switch on a path to beat the lifetime sales of the company's previous console - the Wii U - in less than 12 months.

With the holiday season still being in full swing, it's likely Nintendo will still be seeing their latest console fly off the shelves into January.

Nintendo's flagship console and quite possibly biggest contender to Sony's has just hit an incredible milestone.

An interesting statistic to note is that the console is performing more or less the same as the PS4 in the same amount of time when it launched back in 2013. The Switch is now on target to surpass these sales within its first year on the market, depending upon how well it sells around the Christmas period. This is a realistic goal, given the fact that the company is counting on this year's holiday sales for a big boost. The answer to the question "Will low game availability hurt the Switch" is "definitely not". Another title, third-person shooter "Splatoon 2", has been purchased by one in four Switch owners, he said.
