The PlayStation 5 Overtakes Nintendo Switch as Best-Selling Console

Oct 19, 2021

After a three-year reign by Nintendo, Sony has finally managed to reclaim the top spot for the best-selling console.

According to NPD analyst Mat Piscatella, the PlayStation 5 has managed to both sell more units and bring in more dollars over the month of September this year than any other console, effectively ending the Switch‘s reign for the past 33 consecutive months. The new record would give Sony the top position once again after holding it with the PlayStation 4 all the way back in November, 2018 just before Nintendo’s amazing spree.

As a whole, console sales in the U.S. jumped 49% as of September this year when compared to the same period a year ago, with total sales for 2021 reaching a whopping $3.4 billion USD. While Nintendo still managed to sell more Switch units as a whole across the year, the PlayStation 5 is nonetheless the fastest-selling console in American history, moving more than 10 million units in just 248 days.

Elsewhere in gaming, The Haunting has returned to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone for Halloween.
