Nintendo Switch Is January's Best Selling Console In The US

Nintendo Switch Minecraft Bedrock Edition Revealed

"Minecraft Bedrock Edition" has been demoed by Microsoft for the Nintendo Switch, and the company has been nothing but thorough.

"Hardware spending in January 2018 grew 119 percent when compared to year ago, to $278 million", NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said.

In a statement to Polygon, publisher Starbreeze Studios clarified some details on the upcoming release of Payday 2 on the Nintendo Switch, which is set to arrive later this week in Europe and at the end of the month for the U.S. on the system. This implies that the release of the Xbox One X model has had a reinvigorating effect on the sales of the console. And that "everybody wins" trend continued last month. "Spending gains were driven by Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 hardware sales growth". However, it is worth mentioning that the numbers among Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 were extremely close this month, with the difference in revenue from the top console to the third one being of only 3%.

In dollar sales, the gap between the top-selling platform and the third best-selling was only 3 percent.

Street Analysts View On US Bancorp (USB), CSX Corporation (CSX)
During the same period in the previous year, the firm posted $0.82 earnings per share. analysts predict that U.S. Choate Investment Advisors sold 1,471 shares as the company's stock declined 6.89% while stock markets rallied.

According to a report from Venture Beat, the latest Nintendo console is the best selling console in the USA for January.

Again, this is not just about sales parity - these systems are addressing diverse groups of consumers.

With Nintendo looking to turn the Switch into the next Wii, it's tempting to assume that the 3DS is entering end-of-life. Total industry sales of $1.1 billion were the highest we've seen since January 2011, with games like Monster Hunter: World, Dragonball Fighterz, and Call of Duty: WWII leading the charge.

NPD says that this is a sign that the gaming market is as healthy as ever.
