Video game industry analyst at NPD Mat Piscatella took to Twitter to announce the Nintendo Switch is currently leading the hardware sales market in the US, beating out the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. He also announced Nintendo is the top-selling publisher.
Switch is going to have one heck of a good 2019... and beyond. Letting people play their games wherever, whenever, without a required internet connection, with tons of content appealing to every gaming segment.— Mat Piscatella (@MatPiscatella) June 11, 2019
Switch hardware sales are currently leading the US market in a big way, Nintendo is the leading software publisher, and neither of these facts show any signs of slowing anytime soon.— Mat Piscatella (@MatPiscatella) June 11, 2019
Tell ya what, if we see some kind of console arms race of $500+ boxes, multiple sub services and highest end internet required... well then I'd feel even better about Nintendo continuing to lead than I do now.— Mat Piscatella (@MatPiscatella) June 16, 2019
