Nintendo Switch was a big hit during its first holiday season

Nintendo executives have another reason to celebrate this morning, as NPD Group has just delivered hardware sales rankings for the month of December. Continuing a trend that persisted throughout much of 2017, the Switch finished as the top selling console in the US, beating out the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. That is, of course, unsurprising, considering that the Switch is a new console while the Xbox One and PS4 have been around for a while, but the amount of Switch units Nintendo moved in December might come surprise even those who expected it to do well.

Netflix still “exploring” Nintendo Switch app, but we might be waiting a while

The Nintendo Switch is becoming a great little platform, but it's still far from perfect. Switch owners have complained about a variety of things since launch, including the lack of a virtual console and the need for a smartphone app for in-game communication. One of the most common complaints, however, is that the Switch is missing streaming apps that have already found their way to every other platform imaginable.

Switch has a “crucial” second year ahead of it, Nintendo says

It has to feel pretty good to be a Nintendo executive right now. The Switch was one of the hottest devices of the year, and instant popularity among consumers has translated to sales that are outpacing the Wii, Nintendo's best-selling home console of all time.

Nintendo Switch needs these 5 Wii U games next

Nintendo Switch needs these 5 Wii U games next

Throughout 2017, Nintendo bolstered its first-party offerings on the Switch with ports of Mario Kart 8 and Pokken Tournament, two games that originally appeared on the Wii U. The thought process behind this is pretty clear, as it allows Nintendo to keep up a steady string of releases for a new console without as much effort as developing new games from the ground up. It also gives the large number of us who missed out on the Wii U a chance to play these games, which is nice because Nintendo released some excellent titles for its ultimately doomed console.
