Back in the day, when people thought of console wars, Xbox vs. PlayStation was usually the running theme. These two systems have battled against each other for years. Some years Sony had the better product. Other years, Microsoft took the sales lead.

It wasn’t until Nintendo came out with the Switch when a third competitor dominated the market. The Switch has honestly been one of the best selling consoles to date. For the month of March, it outsold the PS4 and Xbox One by quite a considerable margin.

But why is this? Both Sony and Microsoft gain rights to some amazing exclusives and even keep putting out updated versions of their consoles. Still, the Switch is selling the best. There’s a lot to say about Nintendo’s focus on family gaming. Time and time again, they put out titles that are truly great for the whole family. Everyone wants to join in on the fun.

Some of their most popular titles to date include Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. These games — at their core — are great to play with others.

Although these games are incredible, they’re only half of the story for the Nintendo Switch. What may be even more important is its dual design. When you’re ready to game traditionally, you can hook the Switch up to your TV. The magic happens when you want to take your gaming on the go.

The portable screen is big and offers amazing graphics, but most importantly, lets you take your favorite gaming experiences wherever you are in the world. You can play the Switch on the toilet, at a friend’s house, or on a car ride. The possibilities are endless.

It has been roughly two years since the Switch officially debuted, and still, it’s quite an amazing console. The sales don’t seem to be slowing down any time soon, either. As Sony and Microsoft have their sights set on next-gen consoles, Switch is looking to perfect a recipe that’s already working.

They’re on the verge of unleashing two new models: one will be smaller and more affordable and another will feature better gaming capabilities. Nintendo is never afraid to innovative, and these new Switch models are a testament to their willingness to give gamers exactly what they want. More gaming companies could certainly take note of their vision.
