The latest charts have arrived from the USA, showing a newcomer at the top. The Switch also had a good month, while the PS5 continues to top the annual charts based on sales.
Mat Piscatella of the NPD Group stressed on Twitter that the PS5 is still the console with the highest dollar sales this year in the US. In terms of numbers, however, the Nintendo Switch is at the top.
“The Switch was the most successful hardware platform in October, both in terms of quantities and in dollars, supported by the introduction of the Nintendo Switch – OLED model,” said Piscatella in the wording. “The PlayStation 5 remains the most successful hardware platform in dollars in 2021, while the Nintendo Switch leads in terms of units sold.”
