Nintendo Switch Named Time’s Top Gadget of 2017
TIME has come out with its list for the top 10 gadgets of 2017, and the Nintendo Switch tops the list. The Switch is Nintendo’s portable gaming console which has been selling out like hot-cakes — a fate that the Nintendo Wii U unfortunately didn’t encounter.

While TIME hasn’t given any reasons as to why the Switch is on the top of the list, Nintendo is definitely going to be pretty happy about the achievement.
We are also seeing Nintendo enjoy a lot of success with first-party titles, such as Super Mario Odyssey which sold 2 million copies in 3 days. The Switch is also seeing a lot of support from big name publishers and developers, such as Bethesda who have released/will be releasing titles like DOOM, Wolfenstein II, and Skyrim for the platform. _ Uberzigmo

While the article compliments the iPhone X design, it also notes that Apple wasn’t the initiator of these technologies. Interestingly Fidget Spinner made at No. 25.
