(TIML TECH) I haven’t been able to stop playing my Nintendo Switch systems, thanks in no small part to the incredible The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and it appears that i am not not alone. A new report estimates that Nintendo has managed to sell more than 1.5 million consoles in less than two weeks on the market.

In North America, the Switch’s sales are up by about 20 percent over the Wii U — a console that actually opened to a pretty strong reception before quickly fizzling out in 2013. The Switch also sold considerably better than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and at least in its first two days, outsold the Wii. The Wii went on to sell 600,000 units in only a week, but the Switch appears to be keeping remarkably close pace.

The GameIndustry.biz report also stated that 90 percent of Switch owners also purchased The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which would put total sales for that game at around 1.35 million. We’re just wondering who chose a different game with their system. Some people such as myself must really love 1-2 Switch. Sound off below!!!
