Nintendo Switch Set a New Record
Nintendo Switch broke the Wii's record from 2008

In August 2020, sales of the Nintendo Switch game console set a record. For a month in the United States, these devices were sold for $ 229 million. It is reported by the NPD Group (Mat Piscatella), which tracks monthly US hardware and software revenues.

This result is 37% higher than in 2019. Also, august's Nintendo Switch result broke the Wii's 2008 previous sales record.

Note that Nintendo managed to achieve such an indicator even despite the absence of high-profile releases of new games. Thus, the upward trend in popularity of the hybrid console continues.
