According to NPD, the Nintendo Switch continues to be a world-beating games system. Despite its popularity month by month, the portable/home console hybrid in fact doubled in unit sales in the United States. Unlike the PlayStation 5, the game was still a hit in April, with new stock coming to American retailers, with the Xbox Series X/S falling to second place for dollar sales.
It might be difficult to remember but when the Nintendo Switch was released in March 2017, widespread speculation that consumers might not get the advantage of the hybrid system, especially as its predecessor, the similarly innovative Wii U, had performed very badly for the Japanese console manufacturer. The Switch is now rivaling the Wii for the best performing home console in the venerable gaming industry.
In fact, the NationalPD has stated that the Switch has now surpassed the PlayStation 4 in terms of lifetime sales in the United States, putting the console at the forefront of all time in America, behind the PS2, Xbox 360, and Nintendo''s own Wii (via The Verge). For comparison, the Wii has sold 30 million units, while the PS2 has surpassed 46.4 million units in the United States, according to figures.
The Switch is the most popular console of this year in the United States, while America''s Microsoft clinches a Japanese advantage as the Xbox Series is second in the games sold for both April and 2022 year-to-date. However, the Xbox Series has generated the highest amount of dollars of any platform so far this year.
Elden Ring has surpassed FromSoftware for the last 12 months, which has surpassed the other games in terms of value. It appears that the Lands Between is a realm American gamers who are interested in.
