Since the PlayStation 5 broke the Nintendo Switch monopoly for nearly three years, the monthly sales first position in October last year, the competition between the two has been fierce. With the launch of the OLED version, the Nintendo Switch regained the top spot in both November and December last year, but in January 2022, the PlayStation 5 once again took the top spot.
According to the latest statement from NPD Group analyst Mat Piscatella
, the Nintendo Switch bounced back in February, beating the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5
in both units and dollars. Nintendo Switch sales have a lot to do with its supply, and although Nintendo has cut production by 20% by March 2022, it’s still easier for players to buy a Nintendo Switch than Sony and Microsoft Xbox.
As for the best-selling game, it’s without a doubt Elden Ring. Its sales exceeded the previously released Pokémon Legends: Arceus and Horizon II: Forbidden West and the sales momentum was very rapid.
