The Switch has beat out the competition once again during the month of August. The hybrid console has outsold the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 more than once since it launced back in March.
“The Nintendo Switch was August’s best-selling hardware platform,” NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said. “The Nintendo Switch has been the best-selling platform in four of the six months since launching in March 2017.”
For the months that the Nintendo Switch was not topping the charts, the PlayStation 4 took its place at #1.
“Sony’s PlayStation 4 was the best-selling platform in both May and June,” said Piscatella. “Sony’s PlayStation 4 continues to be the best-selling hardware platform year to date.”
Sure the Switch and PlayStation 4 are doing great, but the Xbox One sales are showing a drop as Microsoft is preparing to launch their Xbox One X system in early November.
“Year to date, hardware spending has grown 17 percent versus 2016 to $1.7 billion,” said Piscatella. “Consumer spending on Nintendo Switch and plug-‘n’-play devices, such as the NES Classic, are providing growth.”
