Weirdly enough, despite all that commotion of Sony Interactive Entertainment with the PS5, it still manages to have itself on top.
NPD group executive director of games and analyst provider Mat Piscatella had the cold, hard facts to back up the claims. He said:
“Launch month sales of a new console have no correlation to long-term performance, so I don’t think the strong launch performance says much more than Sony was confident enough to make the units available for sale that would reach the record.”
“I am certainly optimistic for the long-term prospects for both new gen consoles, but I don’t take anything more away from the launch month sales than that’s the number of units that were produced and distributed.”
As the PS5 had managed to break the all-time record for unit sold and dollar sales, no one can also deny how the Nintendo got both Sony and Microsoft beat in terms of longevity. The Switch is currently one of the best selling consoles in the US for all of history to track, as it has the best selling platform in units sold record in a span of 2 years. In terms of games the current top three as of November numbers are Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, and Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
With all these numbers in tow, are you also rooting for the same top notchers and record-breakers? Let us know in the comment’s section below!
