Recently, new generation game consoles have been on the agenda. However, in this period where PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X were talked about a lot, a remarkable success came from Nintendo. Nintendo Switch went down in history with sales figures. Switch became the second best selling video game console in the US in a month.
Faces are smiling this year with Switch sales on the Nintendo side
We can say that Sony and Microsoft are constantly in sight, since they have introduced their new generation consoles for a while. However, Nintendo, which we can call silent these days, is having a great year when we look at the sales statistics.
Nintendo Switch sales exceeded 735 thousand in October. This statistic, which emerged in the sum of Switch and Switch Lite sales, has also brought the device the title of the second best-selling game console in the USA in a month so far. The first place in this area belongs to Nintendo Wii with its sales exceeding 800 thousand.
In addition to this success in October, we can say that Switch and Switch Lite make the company happy with their yearly sales figures. While the devices reached a total of 22.5 million sales in America this year, it reached 68 million on a global basis. According to Nintendo, COVID-19 has a share in the increase in these statistics. The fact that people spend more time at home has positively affected the demand for Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite, especially in the USA.
