US: Switch has sold more consoles than any other platform in history on a time-aligned basis
Nintendo has shattered all sorts of sales records with Switch since the system launched in 2017. Despite being around for less than a year, it has done exceptionally well thus far.
The latest example of this can be seen from a nugget of new information provided by the NPD. Analyst Mat Piscatella says that “on a time-aligned basis through the first 10 months on the market, Nintendo Switch has sold more consoles than any other platform in history.”
Nintendo announced earlier this month that Switch is the fastest-selling home video game system of all time in the US. Nearly five million units have been sold in the country.
