In other news, the number of Nintendo Switch consoles sold in the United States during the month of March doubled last year’s figure. This has been reported by The NPD Group, a private company that performs an economic analysis of the video game industry. During the past month the console had an increase in its sales in the North American market even greater than that of Xbox One and PS4, thanks in large part to the launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
In general, spending on consoles during the month of March 2020 was much higher than in 2019: specifically, US users spent 63% more on hardware compared to the previous year. This seems to be a direct and evident consequence of the current situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
