Nintendo has announced that Switch will outperform its rivals and become the best-selling console in the United States in November 2020. This achievement means that the system holds the honor of its best-selling console for 24 consecutive months.
The numbers provided by The NPD Group show that the combined sales of Switch and Switch Lite systems exceeded 1.35 million throughout November, and Thanksgiving and Black Friday definitely gave the console a decent boost. .. Switch has sold 6.92 million units in the United States so far this year, a total of which has already improved overall 2019.
This result also means that Switch was able to sell both the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S consoles in the first month of its launch. However, it is worth noting that retailers across the country quickly sold out inventory of the new system. So if more units were available, it could have been a different story.
Nick Chavez, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Nintendo, explains that the company “continues to see unprecedented demand for switches.”
“Nintendo Switch offers shoppers this holiday season a unique offer to play on TV and handheld games. Unprecedented demand for Nintendo Switch continues to be seen and delighted by people of all ages and gaming skill levels. Experience the Nintendo Switch after this holiday. “
