DO YOU HAVE ONE YET?
A mini-console, based on the 80’s classic, is currently the biggest selling gaming machine, right now it’s outselling Xbox One, Playstation 4, and the Nintendo Switch!
The NES Classic was originally a limited edition collectible, but demand for it was so high, Nintendo brought it back this summer. And it appears that was the right move, because the NES Classic isn’t just selling well. According to new sales data, it’s outselling pretty much everything.
The Verge has a good summary of the NPD numbers for June, which look at hardware and software sales for video games in the US. The NES Classic not only outsold everything else, it did it despite only being available for two days, as it hit stores again June 29th. Granted, that it only costs as much as a modern video game, $60, probably helped matters a little bit, but those are still some impressive numbers when consoles are still selling briskly.
