Lifetime Sales top spot in Japan Switches away from PlayStation 4

Nintendo Switch, by no surprise to the world, has been consistently bringing great content. Due to the Switch’s library of consecutive hits such as : Octopath Traveler, Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, and The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, Nintendo Switch surpasses PlayStation 4 in lifetime sales in Japan.

Since I’ve owned the Nintendo Switch on May of 2017, I enjoyed the flexibility the Switch offers. I have many situations that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One X can’t come along on the trip. I believe the Nintendo Switch, with the right multi-platform support, gives players the ease of access and ability to play anywhere. I believe huge flexibility along with great titles on the go is what tipped the scale in the Switch’s favor.

Sales are recorded from April 29th, 2019 to May 12th, 2019. These sales stats were found on nintendolife.

1) Switch – 83,471
2) PlayStation 4 – 17,646
