“Year to date, hardware spending has grown 20 percent versus 2016 to $1.6 billion. Performance of the Nintendo Switch continues to be the primary cause of the year-on-year gains. Sony’s PlayStation 4 is the best-selling hardware platform year to date.

Accessories for the Nintendo Switch and Microsoft’s Xbox One drove spending growth. Gamepads were the top-selling accessory types for both platforms. Declines in the Interactive Gaming Toys (IGT) segment lessened in July. The IGT segment was down only 15 percent in dollar sales compared to July 2016.”

The Switch is doing what the Wii did back in 2007, but with units being sold to actual gamers.

Asterisk means digital sales are not included.

Which is nuts. Imagine how much higher Nintendo software would be on the list if it was. Splatoon 2 would be like...-5
