Nintendo Switch is a real success. Almost 5 years after its launch, it continues to sell like hot cakes and even has enough inertia to continue at the top even when the new generation consoles are already on sale.

The history of Nintendo Switch in the United States was repeated in December of last year. We say this because, according to figures from the NPD Group, the console ended the month as the best-selling video game console in the United States. With this, it remains the best-selling console in 36 of the last 37 months.

Not only that! Nintendo Switch also tied with PlayStation 5 in the metric of dollars generated by its sale. This is truly impressive when you consider that the Nintendo Switch is cheaper than both models of Sony’s current-gen console.

It is worth mentioning that hardware sales in the United States had an annual drop of 3%. This is something that was to be expected since last year the new generation consoles had hardly been released.

Another important point is that 2021 was a good year for the gaming industry. What happens is that, despite the shortage of consoles, the income generated by their sale had an annual growth of 14% to reach the figure of $6.1 million dollars.
