The Nintendo Switch is off to a great sales start, but the praise the console receives from owners is giving it the necessary boost to be as successful as the Wii.

The lucky gamers who have been able to find a Switch in stock are loving it. Nintendo managed to introduce a new gaming experience with the Switch.

What looks like a simple concept is giving gamers the freedom to play console quality games anywhere.

Polygon's Ben Kuchera praises the Switch as a conversation changer. "That thing from the commercials where people crowd around the screen while holding Joy-Cons and playing games during social events? The situation that many in the gaming community insisted would never happen? People are doing it," writes Kuchera.

The Verge's Chris Plante loves the Switch gaming experience as it frees him from back pain. The Joy-Con controllers take gamers out of the hunched "T.rex" position.

The satisfaction of existing Nintendo Switch owners is palatable. The sales of 2.74 million units as of end of April underline show that Nintendo is back.

Sony and Microsoft have to put Nintendo back on the map of competitors now. It's the Wii all over again. Sony and Microsoft bet on more powerful consoles, but these do not offer the flexibility of the Switch.

The biggest issue for Nintendo is actually to make enough Switch consoles to meet the demand. The planned 10 million units Nintendo said to make in the next 12 months will not be enough.

The positive reviews the Switch receives makes it even more painful for video game fans who have not yet been able to get their hands on a $299.99 Nintendo Switch. To find a Switch in stock, refer to our daily Nintendo Switch availability report.
