The Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console worldwide with 510,630 consoles sold for the week ending September 19, according to VGChartz estimates. Sales for the console increased over 100,000 week-on-week thanks to the release of Super Mario 3D All-Stars and extra stock available in the west.
The PlayStation 4 was the second best-selling console with sales of 141,330 consoles sold. This was followed by the Xbox One with 28,841 units and the Nintendo 3DS with 13,243 units. Sales for the 3DS increased four times week-on-week as people try to purchase what stock is left available now that Nintendo has discontinued the handheld.
Nintendo Switch sales compared to the same week a year ago are down 79,652 units (-13.49%) due to Switch Lite launching one year ago. The PlayStation 4 is down 70,651 units (-33.33%), the Xbox One is down 26,669 units (-48.04%), and the 3DS is down just 57 units (-0.43%).
