NPD Group’s sales report for December 2018 video game sales in the United States has appeared to leaked early.
According to the leaked report, the Nintendo Switch was the bestselling video game console in the US for the month of December. Not only that, the report seems to suggest that the Switch has outsold both the PS4 and Xbox One combined in that month. It would be a very huge deal if this is true.
Industry insider Benji, who has access to internal sales data, has also thrown around some figures for the month of December. Benji estimates that the Switch sold over 2 million units in December, while the Xbox One moved around 1 million and the PS4 slightly under 1 million.
We’ll have the full report in the very near future, so please stay tuned. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
Yep, @techhog89 will be correct regarding December sales. NPD will announce the final numbers later this January.
