NPD: Switch sold more hardware units in Q3 than any platform since the DS in 2009
Nintendo has had continued success with Switch since the system launched in 2017. The pattern has continued through this year, and 2020 may actually be the platform’s best year yet from a sales perspective.
That’s further backed up by the NPD Group’s Mat Piscatella. In a tweet shared earlier today, Piscatella revealed that in the United States, Switch sold more hardware units in Q3 than any platform since the DS in 2009.
2020 has been a strong year for the gaming industry overall. Total industry consumer spending on video gaming in the U.S. reached $11.2 billion in the third quarter, a 24 percent increase year-over-year.
