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.
