The NES Classic Edition outsold the PlayStation Classic in the US, according to NPD analyst Mat Picatella. It was also the best-selling Plug N Play system in December and 2018. It also outsold every PlayStation 4 and Xbox SKU. Only the Nintendo Switch 32GB Neon Red/Blue Joy Con SKU sold more units.

Nintendo will be discontinuing the NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic Edition now that the holiday period is over.

So in other words, over 900K NES classic sold in December? That's amazing how well it sells

Only Neon-colored Switch sold better, so it must have outsold everything else, including Xbox One sales, which sold around 900K

From what i understand from the tweet i sold better than every sku aside from neon switch,however it's not stated that it outsold the one s and x combined so it isn't safe to say it sold 900k units, but It's a possibility.

That is how understood it to @Shore

It specifically said SKU. Soooo based on individual SKU it did outsold everything except the Neon. Which I assume is still a huge number.

In any case, can't be far below 900K, if not for XBO then due to the Gray Switch
