A couple of days ago a report by Vgchartz emerged, where it was mentioned that the Nintendo Switch had finally exceeded PS4 sales in the United States. Now, new details by the NPD Group has confirmed this information, and shared a little more.
According to Mat Piscatella, the Nintendo Switch became the console with more units sold in the United States during the month of April. In this way, the hybrid platform has exceeded the sales of PlayStation 4 in this region, thus becoming the fourth most successful console in the history of this country , as well as on the sixth hardware platform focused on video games.
Ahead of the Nintendo Switch are PS2, Xbox 360 and Wii . Although there are no exact number, VGCARTZ mentioned that Switch sales are 35.61 million units, while the PS4 has 35.25 million at the moment.
Regarding the other three competitors of the switch, it is mentioned that the Wii sold 45.51 million units in the United States. The Xbox 360 has 45.14 million in this region. Finally, The PS2 has 53.65 million only in this region . It is clear that reaching first place is not an easy task for the most recent Nintendo platform.
In related issues, Nintendo does not want to repeat the same Wii U errors with its next console. Similarly, Alan Wake Remastered will arrive at the Nintendo Switch.
Like general sales, the possibilities that the Nintendo Switch exceeds PS2 and is crowned as the best -selling console in history, at least in this case, are high, but they are not a guarantee. It all depends on Nintendo to keep the pace of releases that we have seen today.
