RUMOR - NPD hardware sales for Jan. 2019, Switch takes #1, sees best Jan. hardware sales of this generation

Although the Jan. 2019 NPD numbers were supposed to come in today, they ended up getting delayed at the last minute. We don't know when the data will be publicly shared yet, but the insiders have once again come forward with details on hardware sales. According to those sources, here's how Jan. 2019 played out.

- 284k

- 195k

- 101k

If these numbers are true, that would mean the Switch has seen the best hardware sales for a January during this current generation. The previous record was set by the PS4 back in 2014, which sold 274k for that month.

They really gave us a gift.

A gift that keeps on giving.

I also love my Switch. It's a genius hybrid console that truly delivers on the hybrid aspect. Mine is of great quality (which means no prob with Wi-Fi, no scratches on the screen etc). Plenty options for controllers and ways to play (even if it's mostly docked here, I do sometimes....SWITCH). And, OF COURSE, so many great titles. Be that 1st, 2nd or 3rd or Indies. Some of my favourite games even. And so far this year looks amazing. Also heard Trinnen(?) taked about Bayonetta 3 coming this year. OH GAWD! From my "this gen" consoles the PS4 Pro (with PSVR) and Switch are fighting for attention, and that's a good sign for quality at both. My XO? My landlord has it for GTA5.. The only reason I didn't give it to him as a gift or sold it cheap ws because I collect. Tat and CupHEad hehe

With all that said though, this year Sony and MS will reveal their next systems and we all know 3rd parties are already working on projects there, so I am curious to see what Nintendo does to battle it out with those. And do NOT bullshit me about Nintendo not fighting for the same market when that's beyond obvious they do.

Anyway! Happy to see Nintendo kicking arse again. Well deserved.

Now some Smash? Dericace? Tetris 99? Retro gaming? First world problems, dammit!

It's pretty significant, considering the PS4 got some high-profile games in January. Off the top of my head I can't think of any really significant Switch releases in the last month.

So any idea when these numbers will be official?

I'm not sure... I don't even know why NPD numbers would be "delayed" like they apparently were.

It did strike me as rather weird that they were delayed. Never heard of that one before.
