PS5 tops Switch sales, ending 3-year streak - Get2Gaming


Sony’s PlayStation 5 is the first console to overtake the Switch in US monthly sales charts since 2018.

The PlayStation 5 surpassed the Nintendo Switch in September US sales, stopping a 33-month streak for the Switch, according to Mat Piscatella, executive director of the NPD group. Sony’s PS5 console is still notoriously challenging to get a hold of, due to a global chip shortage. Despite this, it’s managed to become the first console to beat out the Switch and take the top spot in monthly sales since November 2018.

Piscatella states that the PlayStation 5 leads the Switch in sales dollars so far this year, but Nintendo’s console still leads in units sold this year – as it is a less costly console. As of July, Sony has sold 10 million units since the PS5 launched, slightly outpacing its predecessor, the PlayStation 4.

The Nintendo Switch tends to be more popular with families and casual gamers, so the 33-month lead over the other consoles is indicative of this demographic still dominating the market. We will have to see which console among the big three (PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch) will close out this year with Black Friday and Christmas approaching.
