Despite launching nearly four years later, Switch has outdone PS4

Switch has now outsold PS4 in the US to become the fourth-biggest home video game console of all time in the region, according to the NPD Group, a long-standing US market research company.

“Lifetime unit sales of Nintendo Switch have now surpassed those of PlayStation 4,” NPD Executive Director and Video Game Industry Advisor Mat Piscatella says on Twitter, “making it the 4th highest unit selling console in US history, and the 6th highest unit selling video game hardware platform overall. In console it trails only PS2, Xbox 360 and Wii.” (Switch sales also currently trail Game Boy/Game Boy Color and Nintendo DS, if you include handhelds.)
