The Nintendo Switch continues to sell like hot cakes, despite reports of a 20% decrease YoY from Nintendo’s own financial report. Now, the hybrid console has reached another remarkable milestone by surpassing the total sales of the PS4 in the US.
This means that the Switch is now the fourth best selling console in the US, behind the PS2, the Xbox 360, and Nintendo’s own Wii.
Standouts from the April 2022 NPD report:
– Switch has passed PS4 in lifetime sales in the U.S., now 4th best-selling console behind PS2, 360, Wii
– PS5 still lagging behind Switch and Xbox Series in unit sales for 2022 in U.S., 4 months into the year. It’s still scarce

Nintendo forecasts a further 21 million global sales for the Switch in FY2023, so there’s every chance that US sales in particular may help the Switch inch up the ladder even further.
Despite such a great milestone, there are signs that the Switch has passed its peak, so we took a look into what might be happening with the potential release of a successor.
