Nintendo Switch officially set an incredible new sales record. According to data released by the NPD Group just last week, Nintendo’s latest and greatest game console has once again become the best-selling game console in the United States. Thanks to the latest data, this means that it has officially become the best-selling game console in the United States in the past 22 months, setting a new record.
Previously, the record was retained by Xbox 360. From August 2011 to April 2013, it was the best-selling game console in 21 months. Although this tip was not originally acquired and promoted by the NPD Group itself, the NPD Group video game industry analyst Mat Piscatella also confirmed this after starting the online tour.

In other words, since PlayStation and Xbox released next-generation consoles in November, it is very likely that Nintendo Switch will not actually last longer (if any). PlayStation 5 will be released in the United States on November 12, and both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will be released on November 10. To be sure, in the next few months, these will occupy a large market share.
The two official models of the console-Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite, are currently available wherever such products are sold, provided that you can find any of them. Rumors and reports about the new Nintendo Switch model still exist, which is tentatively scheduled to be released next year. You can view all our previous reports on Nintendo here.
