Nintendo Switch Outsells PS4, Xbox One In US July Sales

The PS4 remains the best-selling console for the full year, however.

Last updated by Eddie Makuch on August 17, 2017 at 3:49PM


The NPD Group today put out its report for July 2017, showing that the Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console of the month in the US. Its success was fuelled in part by new units coming into retail channels and the launch of Splatoon 2, which was July's best-selling game, NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said.


On a year-to-date basis, however, Sony's PlayStation 4 remains the best-selling console.


For July 2017, hardware sales in the US came to $182 million, rising 29 percent when compared to July 2016. Piscatella said Switch and PS4 sales "accounted for most of the increase." Not a word was said about Xbox One hardware in the NPD's report.


On a year-to-date basis, hardware sales in the US came to $1.6 billion, up 20 percent. Again, Piscatella said the Switch was the "primary" driver of the growth.








Splatoon 2 sales overtake Crash Bandicoot in the US

Tekken 7 drops from top slot to 20th in one month.

By Jeffrey Matulef Published 18/08/2017


Splatoon 2 may have come in second in the UK sales charts behind Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy, but in the US that order was flipped for the month of July.


These figures come according to analyst group NPD, and it's worth noting that these are calculated based on dollars sales. So bear in mind that Splatoon 2 is a more expensive game that Crash Bandicoot, costing $60 rather than $40.


While exact sales figures aren't known, we do know that NPD was only calculating physical sales for the top-ranking Switch releases, while other platforms were factoring in digital sales (with the exception of Overwatch's Battle.net sales not being included).


We also know that Splatoon 2 sold 59 per cent better than its predecessor in the UK, which is pretty impressive as the first Splatoon went on to sale upwards of 4m copies, meaning roughly a third of all Wii U owners picked up a copy.




The top 20 games, in terms of dollars sales in the US, were as follows:

Splatoon 2

Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy

Grand Theft Auto 5

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Injustice 2

Mario Kart 8


Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege

NBA 2K17

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Call of Duty: Modern War

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3


Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

MLB 17: The Show


Battlefield 1

Mass Effect: Andromeda

Tekken 7



GG Switch & Splatoon 2 :wub:
