The NPD Group’s monthly gaming industry sales report has just been released. The hardware sales for October 2019 were good news for Nintendo, but also not surprising at all. If you have been following the trends from NPD’s monthly reports so far this year, then you know what I’m going to say. Once again, the Nintendo Switch was the top-selling system for the month. NPD analyst Mat Piscatella says that “Nintendo Switch is the only platform with sales gains both in October as well as year to date”.
