In the United States, Nintendo Switch sales have surpassed PlayStation 4 ...

According to The NPD Group, Nintendo Switch sales momentum in the United States has led it past its most significant competitor. The hybrid home/handhelds lifetime sales have now surpassed the PlayStation 4.

The Nintendo Switch''s lifetime unit sales have increased from PlayStation 4, making it the fourth highest unit-selling console in history, and the sixth highest unit-selling video game hardware platform in terms.

This is a significant step for the Nintendo system. It puts it behind only a few of the best-selling home consoles of all time.

According to Piscatella, Switch units sales are surpassed in PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, and Wii in the console segment.

Switch led hardware units sales in April and continues to outperform Xbox and PlayStation year-to-date. PS3 is the No. 2 console in both periods, while PlayStation 5 remains supply restricted.

Its PlayStation, however, was on the rise in terms of dollars sales.

PS5''s hardware dollar sales have been led by the Xbox Series and Nintendo Switch, according to Piscatella. The Xbox Series has produced the highest hardware dollars of any platform year to date, followed by PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch.

The PlayStation 5 has the highest average sales price owing to lack of a $300 model like the Xbox Series S. That allows it to generate more revenues while selling its very limited supply of consoles.

Although hardware saw a surge year over year in April, thanks to increased availability. This is only a teaser of whats to come, as supply is still unlikely to return to normal levels before the end of this year.

According to Piscatella, video game hardware sales increased by 16% in comparison to the same month last year, owing to improved supply of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles. Year-to-date expenditure on hardware decreased by 9%, to $1.5 billion.

For the time being, the business is experiencing a high tide. This should help stage the major corporations for the second half of the year if they have any games to play, if they do.
