As of September 30, Switch sales sat at 7.63 million, meaning Nintendo has sold almost 2.5 million units of its hybrid console in the last two and a half months.

If you love Nintendo or you hate 'em, you can't ignore the success of the Nintendo Switch.

So, why has the Nintendo Switch been a success?

It has been clear since day one that the Nintendo Switch is a hit for Nintendo.

If you're unsure of just how great this achievement is for Nintendo, the Switch has sold roughly the same amount of systems in approximately the same amount of time as the PlayStation 4 did following its launch in 2013.

The sales figure comes from Nintendo's own estimates, and inches near the 13 million lifetime sales of the company's Wii U misfire. Being able to play on the big TV or the consoles in-built screen on the go, there are no home squabbles with this one.

On a brighter note, the Switch has seen extremely high attach rates, with more physical games being attached to console sales than during the Wii's launch and heyday - although that's probably partly because Wii Sports was bundled with every Wii sold.

Switch did rather well over Black Friday weekend despite the lack of discounts, according to previous data crunching, and the holiday shopping season isn't over by a long shot. Three titles - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Odyssey - have been purchased by more than 50 percent of Switch owners.
