April 2017 NPD: NES Classic Edition was second best-selling hardware following Switch

Posted on May 18, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

April 2017 was an extremely good month for Nintendo sales. In the U.S., the company not only owned the top spot in gaming hardware sales, but the second position as well.

As we know, Switch was the overall top seller. Right behind it though is the NES Classic Edition.

Nintendo is no longer producing the NES Classic Edition. The platform has been phased out worldwide, and April was the final month for shipments.

    WTF?! nintenGOD!

    LOL I saw on n4g Sony fan boys claiming the Switch had only just outsold the PS4… turns out the ps4 was not even the second best selling hardware…… Nintendo have taken over.

    • Stuart

      Yes,it looks like the Switch outsold PS4 by a big margin. Not even I was expecting that, I was also thinking they were close to each other 😛

  • NeptuniasBeard

    Whew! It’s a good thing they discontinued it then. They almost made even more money. That could’ve been extremely bad for them… somehow

    • ronin4life

      Sales obviously spiked due to tge discontinuation though.

      Otherwise it would have puttered along at a decent clip but otherwise would have not been noteworthy. The rapid demand caused by the announcement of its discontinuation caused people to suck up remaining supply while they could

  • Bender Rodriguez

    Nintendo killing the Mini Nes just proves that they lack a lot of common sense.

    • Advance*

      Maybe there’s some reason other than they don’t want to make more money? People don’t seem to consider that.

      • Bender Rodriguez

        It is hard to understand that a company don’t want to continue making money. I mean, that is the whole point of being a company, isn’t it? But anyway, I was thinking about all the people that won’t lay hands on this console.

        • Maybe Nintendo did that because they have another novelty gaming device that’s better and more popular than the NES Mini on the horizon…..can you say……SNES Mini? 😉

          • Kaine Morrison

            SNES sold less than the NES though

          • Yeah but the SNES is heavily regarded as the greatest Nintendo system ever

      você aqui? kkk

      • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

        huahuahuauha sim! há muuuuitos anos!

  • The SNES Mini should triple those sales……if the rumors are true about it being real

  • Kaine Morrison

    Bull! It hasn’t been seen in any store since December!

  • My hope is that they make an app on Switch that has all of the same games.

  • ronin4life

    … how poorly are consoles performing this year then?

    Has PS4 just up and smashed into an impenetrable brick wall?

  • azoreseuropa

    We have NES MINI and we absolutely love it! We are not selling it. NEVER! Now we are waiting for SNES MINI. It is a must have. Can’t wait.
