Switch has already outsold the Wii U lifespan in just over 9 months

In case you haven't heard, the Nintendo Switch is doing amazing. Not only did it break Nintendo's own record for fastest selling console within its debut year, Nintendo just released its total sales as of December 31st, 2017, and it hit another major milestone. The Nintendo Switch has sold a total of 14.86 million units, an impressive number in its own right. However, here's where it gets interesting. The Switch's predecessor, the Nintendo Wii U, in its lifetime, sold a total of 13.56 million units. That means in 9 months, the Switch has sold more units than the Wii U did in its entire lifespan. To put things into perspective, the Wii U launched in November 2012, and has ceased production as of January 2017. In five years, it managed to sell just over a million less, than the Switch in just over 9 months
