This month’s NPD report brought plenty of news concerning software sales in the United States for February, but there are a few hardware tidbits as well. It’s now been revealed that Switch was the best-selling platform in terms of both units and dollars.

We’ll also mention that Switch was the unit sales leader in the first quarter of 2021 as a whole. PlayStation 5 came out on top in terms of dollar sales for the period, though it’s worth noting that the console costs more.

Mario Kart 8 has reached a major milestone in the United States. According to the latest data from the NPD, it’s now the best-selling racing genre video game in U.S. history. NPD doesn’t indicate whether that information only includes the Switch version, but we’d assume the original Wii U title is lumped in as well.

It’s worth noting that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was the sixth best-selling game in the U.S. last month. Despite being a few years old, it still manages to place high on the charts regularly.

According to the latest NPD report which reports data from the United States, Switch was the best-selling hardware platform in units sold for the month of January. Not only that, but unit sales were the highest of any platform in a January month since the Wii in January 2010.

Switch lost out to the PlayStation 5 last month in terms of dollars sold. However, it should be pointed out that Sony’s console is significantly more expensive.

Overall gaming hardware sales in the U.S. were 144 percent higher than January 2020, coming in at $319 million. NPD says it’s the highest amount for a January month since $323 million was generated in January 2011.
