Nintendo Switch is the fastest selling US console ever

Nintendo has announced that the Switch has become the fastest selling console in US history - beating the Wii into second place.

In 10 months since its launch on March 3rd, 2017 the Switch has sold 4.8 million units which is significantly greater than the Wii's 4 million boxes in the same time.
