Listen to this Article:

The year of 2018 was an exciting year for all consoles, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the Nintendo Switch. This past holiday season it was no question that Nintendo had a great line up with Pokemon Let’s Go and Super Smash Bros headlining lots of games. The latest NPD results in the United States have come out regarding the best selling console for the month of December 2018 and here was the outcome:

Nintendo Switch: 1.77M

Xbox One: 920K

PlayStation 4: 797K

What’s a little surprising about the results for last month is that the PlayStation 4 came in last which is a rare sight for Sony as their console have been selling non stop and will probably just about hit 100m console sales in this year of 2019, but we’ll see how it goes. The Nintendo Switch continues to grow which is no surprise with many great titles on the way with Metroid Prime 4, Animal Crossing, a new generation Pokemon title, and a lot more we probably haven’t seen yet. The Xbox One sales are going up which is a great sign moving forward as they have a couple great games coming out this year in Crackdown 3, Gears of War 5, and a lot more.

Keep in mind this is counting out Japan for Sony and Nintendo if you put those numbers in you are looking at something very different when it comes to sales.

Moving forward it should be an exciting year for all platforms.
