The first monthly NPD report is out for 2020, and this is an extra special one. The first NPD report of the year not only looks back at December from the previous year, but also gives us insight on the year as a whole. What makes this report extra special, however, is that this will even look back at the previous decade. According to NPD analyst Mat Piscatella, the Playstation 4 was the decade’s best-selling gaming hardware. As for the previous month and year, Piscatella says that the “Nintendo Switch was the best-selling hardware platform of both December and 2019″. Piscatella also explained that “hardware spending in December 2019 declined 17% when compared to a year ago, to $973,000,000. Annual hardware spending fell 22%, to $3,900,000,000. Nintendo Switch gains could not offset declines across other platforms”.
