NES Classic Mini Was The Best Selling Console In The US Last Month
Somewhat surprisingly, it wasn’t the PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch that managed to take the top spot for best selling console in the States last month. Nintendo’s NES Classic Mini console managed to take the number one spot for the number of sales in July, surpassing any current-gen console on the market.
These results were revealed by the analyst Mat Piscatella at the NPD Group firm. The NES Classic was previously released by Nintendo and sold like hot cakes. Even though Nintendo discontinued the product, they decided to re-release the classic console along with the SNES Mini to give everyone a chance to buy one. The NES Classic was available to purchase once again at the end of June.
NPD Group has been collecting and analyzing statistics from the console market since 1995. It’s unlikely that Nintendo will be able to hold the number 1 position with their classic console as the relaunch was paired with a lot of pre-orders and interest. The best selling console of the year is still Sony’s PlayStation 4 by far.
In terms of games released in the month of June, Nintendo can once again be proud of the number 1 spot with Mario Tennis Aces for Nintendo Switch, with God of War for PS4 coming in at second place.
