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.
