In only 15 months on the market, the Nintendo Switch has sold 19.67 million units worldwide. This is a staggering number when compared to the Wii U sales and about puts it where the PS4 (which has sold 79 million unites) sales were when it first released back in 2013.

The PS4 had about a 4 and a half year head start but as long as we are sitting here talking about it, it looks as though the Switch is right on track in yearly sales comparisons. At this point in its life cycle, the Switch has outsold many consoles of the past including the Wii U, Sega Saturn, and Sega Dreamcast.
