“Nintendo’s hybrid home/handheld Switch console was the best-selling hardware in terms of both dollar and unit sales in the United States for the month of June. It is also the best-selling console through the first half of 2019. Nintendo launched the Switch in March of 2017, and that means millions of people still haven’t picked up one unlike the much older Xbox One and PlayStation 4 systems that debuted in 2013.”

According to NPD analyst Mat Piscatella, “Nintendo Switch is the only platform showing year-on-year growth. Hardware spending in June 2019 dropped 33 percent when compared to a year ago, to $235 million. Year-to-date hardware spending has declined 20 percent versus year ago, to $1.3 billion.”

He added: “Total June 2019 spending on accessories and game cards fell 7% when compared to a year ago, to $338 million. Year-to-date sales of accessories and game cards has declined 1 percent when compared to a year ago, to $1.8 billion. Growth in gamepad spending has not been able to offset declines across other segments.”
