Analytics company NPD just published their first-half 2021 report, which shows that the Nintendo Switch was the best-selling video games platform in the US for the first six months of 2021.
Nintendo Switch topped the list in both dollar and unit sales. For the month of June, Xbox Series X and S actually overtook the Switch in terms of dollar amounts, but the Switch still sold more units across the month.
It will depend on the availability of the PS5 in the last half of the year as to whether Nintendo will retain its lead for 2021.
PlayStation 5 remains the fastest unit-selling console hardware platform in US history, based on lifetime sales after just eight months on sale.
