August 2019 NPD: Switch was the best-selling hardware platform of the month, still the best-selling platform of the year
As has been the case for the past few months, Switch again led the pack for gaming hardware sales in the United States for August 2019. It was the best-selling hardware platform and is still the best-selling platform of the year.
Year-to-date dollar sales of tracked video game software have increased 1 percent to $3.1 billion, and it’s thanks to Switch that there has been growth. While year-to-date hardware spending has decreased by 21 percent year-over-year to $1.6 billion, Switch is the only platform with sales gains both in August as well as year to date.
