For the first time since 1995, an NES-branded console is the top-selling piece of hardware in the United States. The NPD Group has just released its monthly report, highlighting software and hardware sales in the US, and Nintendo’s re-stocked NES Classic Edition sold more units than any other hardware. Of course, being priced at $60 gives it an enormous advantage over modern consoles.
When it comes to hardware with an MSRP of at least $99, PlayStation 4 is king for the month and (thus far) the year. However, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch also saw their sales increase over the same period last year. Xbox numbers hardware profits nearly doubled over last year, while Nintendo’s rose by about 50%, despite declining 3DS numbers.
