The Nintendo Switch has been the top-selling console in the United States for 33 months straight according to data gathered by the NPD Group. That all came to an end in September 2021 when the NPD Group showed that the PlayStation 5 was the top-selling console for the month. The PlayStation 5 sold the most consoles and made the most money compared to the competition.

The Nintendo Switch has been the best selling console every month since November 2018. It was in November 2018 when it overtook the PlayStation 4 for monthly sales and just never looked back. The console outsold every offering from both Microsoft and Sony during this 33 month long stretch.

Though the Switch is the best selling console in terms of units sold (year-to-date) in the United States, the PlayStation 5 became the top earner in August 2021. That's certainly the impressive feat since the PlayStation 5 has been hit by unit shortages since its launch in late 2020. With the recent launch of the OLED Switch model, it will be interesting to see if Sony can hold that crown for another month.

In more generalized news, hardware dollar sales are up 49% compared to last year. Just this past month, the total amount spent on new hardware reached $412 million (USD).
