Nintendo is still performing well in America though I think it'll be more interesting to hear about the numbers for November and December.

According to the NPD Group, which tracks U.S. video game sales, the Nintendo Switch system was the No. 1 video game hardware in October, followed by the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system in the No. 2 spot. When combined with the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, Nintendo systems accounted for two-thirds of all video game hardware sold in the United States for the second month in a row. The U.S. video game industry achieved hardware sales of more than 1 million total units in October for the first time since 2011.

The Super Mario Odyssey game for Nintendo Switch emerged as the top-selling video game of the month on the NPD sales chart, even though it launched at the end of the month on Oct. 27. The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild games for Nintendo Switch finished as the No. 10 and No. 11 individual games for the month, respectively.

It's funny when you think about it really when all these so called "gamers" fight about whether the Xbox of Playstation is the king when really Nintendo is outselling both all over the world week in week out :lol:

Switch has been a great turnaround from the woeful performance of the Wii U.

Switch is a monster. Nintendo confirmed it surpassed the Wii as the fastest-selling video game system in the U.S.

I'm glad Nintendo has a successful home console again. For a bit I was fearing they were going to only have a presence on the mobile/handheld front.
