Switch

According to the latest data from NPD, Switch was the biggest winner in the United States last month. The system managed to outsell both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in terms of dollar sales. Additionally, Switch was the only platform to experience year-over-year growth in dollar sales.

Switch sold over 1.3 million units in the US during November. Interestingly though, the PS4 and Xbox One accomplished the same feat. This marks the first time that three console platforms achieved more than 1 million units sold in a November month. Moreover, it’s just the second time in history that any three platforms saw over 1 million units sold in a November period – the first being the DS, Wii, and Xbox 360 back in 2010.

Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee had a strong debut on the latest NPD charts. For the month of November in the United States, they placed fifth and sixth respectively. Had the two been combined, they probably would have had higher seeding – not to mention digital sales aren’t included.

That’s not the only news for Pokemon. According to NPD analyst Mat Piscatella, launch month sales of the new Switch games “are the second highest in franchise history, trailing only Pokemon Stadium, which launched on the Nintendo 64 in the March 2000 tracking period.”

Pokemon: Let’s Go should continue to chart in December.
