Nintendo Switch outsells Competition in December

But with all the praise lavished upon the Switch, the Nintendo 3DS has done pretty well for itself, too. While the Nintendo Switch was initially hard to find online, supply has finally caught up to demand and you can grab a console from online retails like Amazon for $299.

Switch sold more units than in December than any other video game system in the United States, according to video game sales tracker NPD Group, Nintendo announced.

Nintendo has released numbers confirming December 2017 as their biggest hardware sales month in seven years in the United States.

Combined hardware sales of Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS and the Super NES Classic Edition system were over 2.6 million units, the latter of which accounted for more than half of all hardware sold during the five weeks of December 2017. It is setting new sales record for Nintendo which should prove to be good news for them after the lackluster sale of the Nintendo Wii U.

Overall, 2.6 million units of Nintendo hardware (which includes the SNES Classic Edition) were sold in the U.S. in January.

On the software front, six of the top 20 individual titles of December were Nintendo titles.
