Nintendo Switch surpasses sales of PlayStation 4

Nintendo Switch surpasses sales of PlayStation 4

Because of its adaptability, the Nintendo Switch has been the most popular system for the past five years. It has performed so well that it has eclipsed the PS4’s lifetime sales.

The Switch’s lifetime sales milestone can perhaps be attributed to the console’s low price tag compared to its competitors. Nintendo sells the original Switch console for $299, while the Switch Lite goes for $199 and the OLED model sells at $349, making the Switch quite affordable.

On Friday, Mat Piscatella, executive director and game industry advisor for The NPD Group, tweeted the Switch sales data. He points out that the Switch is now the fourth best-selling system in the United States and the sixth best-selling console overall, trailing only the PS2, Xbox 360, and Wii, Nintendo’s legacy console, in terms of unit sales. He also claimed that the Switch outsold every other console last month and has outsold the Xbox Series X/S year to date.

However, the PS5 still takes the lead in terms of dollar sales. “PlayStation 5 led April in hardware dollar sales, trailed closely by Xbox Series and Nintendo Switch. Xbox Series has generated the highest hardware dollars of any platform year-to-date, followed by PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch,” Piscatella wrote in a reply.

The PS5’s $499 price tag certainly helps Sony generate revenue, but the healthy sales are a good sign the console is becoming more available despite shortages. Sony said that it will be able to sell 18 million consoles worldwide during this fiscal year, which may put an end to the shortages, but won’t be enough to meet growing consumer demand. Hey, it’s better than nothing.
