NES Classic mini console outsells PlayStation 4 and Switch

Nintendo's SNES Classic was also the overall top unit selling hardware platform in the USA in September when it first debuted in stores. Interest has been strong for Nintendo's recent hardware, with the company struggling to meet demand initially for the NES Classic, SNES Classic, and even the Switch.

The NES Classic made its storied return to retail outlets in June, and it made something of a huge splash with its resurgence. Sites have a tendency to crash when Nintendo releases another wave of its mini consoles (either the NES or the SNES).

June therefore counts as the first time since NPD tracking began in 1995 that the NES has topped the sales charts.

In hardware, the top selling system tracked by the NPD in unit sales was the NES Classic Mini, which was re-released on June 29 and had eight days of sale in the reporting period (June 3 - July 7).

How many different ways do you own a copy of Super Mario Bros. or the original The Legend of Zelda? The Nintendo NES Classic costs just $59 compared to the much more hefty asking prices of the competition, but then again, this is a console that was technically originally launched back in 1983. What do you make of this report and does this make you want to invest in an NES Classic Edition? After making a return to stores this past June, and after an all-too-brief time in the limelight back in 2016, we now know that the console was so popular that it managed to outsell every other console during June, beating out the Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Xbox One, and Sony PS4.
