According to the NPD Research Group in the USA, the Nintendo Switch has now sold more often than PlayStation 4. In the United States, PlayStation 4 was able to sell a total of around 38.62 million times. With this milestone, the Nintendo Switch is now 4th of the most successful video game consoles in the history of the United States. Only the PlayStation 2, the Nintendo Wii and the Xbox 360 were sold more often in America than the hybrid console. So far, Nintendo has been able to sell the Switch over 107 million units . For comparison, the PlayStation 4 has so far been sold over 116 million times **.
Despite this milestone, it should be borne in mind that the company is currently expecting 21 million copies of the hybrid console sold in this financial year. In the financial year 2021, over 23 million Switch consoles were sold. We also recently reported current problems in the production of Switch consoles.
Accordingly, Nintendo expects fewer sold units for the current financial year. However, not only Nintendo is currently struggling with a lack of chip set. Sony and Microsoft are also constantly confronted with this problem with this problem at the end of 2020. Accordingly, sales of the consoles can fluctuate, among other things, depending on which units are currently available in large quantities. The Xbox Series consoles recently benefited from this, for example, in the United Kingdom.
more profitable Playstation 5
From a purely financial point of view, the PlayStation 5 was the most successful console of the month in the USA, closely followed by the Xbox Series consoles and the Switch (now buy € 359.90). Nevertheless, the milestone, which Nintendo has reached here, should not be underestimated. After all, the times of the flopped Wii U were not too long ago. Nevertheless, negative headlines around Nintendo are currently available due to numerous allegations of questionable working conditions.
