Nintendo has a real winner on their hands with the Switch, as the console-handheld hybrid managed to reach new heights, as found in the company's latest financial results. During the holiday season, 10.81 million Nintendo Switch systems were sold, bringing the lifetime sales up to a whopping 52.48 million. That means the Nintendo Switch has now outsold the Super Nintendo, which back in its day, shifted 49.1 million units. The Switch has also surpassed the Xbox One, just barely beating out sales for Microsoft's console, in a much shorter timeframe. Where the Xbox One had 74 (released in 2013) months to get to 50 million sales, the Nintendo Switch (released in 2017) performed this feat in 34 months. It's onwards and upwards for Nintendo's latest hardware, which will need to sell another 10 million units to reach its next milestone: outselling the NES.
In the sales data, we also get to see new figures for games on the platform, most notably of which is Pokemon Sword and Shield, which have become the 5th most popular game on the Switch, selling 16.06 million copies since their release last November.
