PS4 The King of Hardware Sales For May

The Playstation 4 has overthrown the Nintendo Switch as the top selling console in the United States for the month of May, this according to the The NPD Group.

The Nintendo Switch had claimed the top spot during March and April but appears to have fallen behind the PS4 in hardware sales for the month of May.  

Overall, software sales plummeted 20% year-over-year, although it is hard to argue that Prey and Injustice 2 could outsell the juggernauts of last May that were Overwatch and Uncharted 4.

Author’s Perspective: I truly believe that the Nintendo Switch was only held back by manufacturing and availability constraints. We don’t have exact numbers of the gap in sales between PS4 and Switch for May, but I can’t imagine it being anything close to a landslide.
