Nintendo Switch holds the record for the best-selling consoles in the United States

Definitely thank you Black Friday, Nintendo Switch has outpaced the competition and currently holds a long record of 24 months.

I think both the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X / S dominated Novemer’s sales charts because they are new consoles.

Instead, the much less powerful console Nintendo Switch, which has been on the market since 2017, outperformed both, at least in the United States.

According to market research firm NPD Group (and reported by Business Wire), total sales of Switch and Switch Lite systems exceeded 1.35 million in November.

With these numbers, this means that Switch has been the best-selling video game console in the United States for 24 consecutive months.

“Nintendo Switch offers shoppers this holiday season a unique offer to play on TV or portable in mobile mode,” said Nintendo of America Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Nick Chavez says.

“Unprecedented demand for Nintendo Switch continues and we are pleased that people of all ages and game skill levels will be able to experience Nintendo Switch after this holiday.”

Black Friday clearly contributed to its success, as Nintendo offered the bundles that came with the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and 3-month Switch Online subscription.

In addition, both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X / S were so popular that they sold out completely at launch, but they couldn’t meet demand. If enough units were available, it could have been a very different story.
