The Nintendo Switch Overtakes The PS4's Sales In America

The Nintendo Switch continues to be a world-beating games system. The portable/home console hybrid remains a bestseller month by month and in fact topped April in unit sales in the United States, according to NPD.

Sony's PlayStation 5, however, did lead April in terms of dollar sales, with new stock arriving to American retailers, while Xbox Series X/S slipped its chart-topping lead from March and fell to second place for dollar sales (which measures how much money sales bring in).

It might be hard to recall but when the Nintendo Switch debuted, back in March 2017, there was widespread speculation that consumers might not get the point of the hybrid system, especially as its predecessor, the similarly innovative Wii U, had performed very badly for the Japanese console maker.

Skip forward five years and the Switch is now rivalling the Wii for best performing home console in the venerable games company's history.
