The Nintendo Switch has sold over 10m units in nine months

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.


Nintendo has sold over 10m units of Switch consoles in nine months.

It’s an impressive opening for Nintendo’s latest console, pushed forward by a continued excellent release schedule containing games like Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey, as well as a good handful of indie titles.

The figure sets the Switch up to dwarf the sales of their previous home console the WiiU, which sold just 13.56m over five years.

The Switch still has a long way to go to catch the Wii, which sold over 100m units in its lifetime, but it's hard to see this launch as anything but a resounding and well-deserved success for Nintendo.
