The NPD sales results have arrived from the United States and it is once again the Nintendo Switch which was the best-selling platform for the month of February. Sales of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One continue to decline as consumers wait for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, which are planned to be released this holiday season.
“Nintendo Switch was the best-selling hardware platform of February in both unit and dollar sales,” NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said. “And [it] remains the best-selling hardware platform of the year.”
“Hardware spending in February 2020 fell 34% when compared to a year ago, to $183 million,” said Piscatella. “All in-market console platforms declined when compared to a year ago. Annual spending has dropped 35 percent, to $312 million.”
