In one report from Install Base, the opening indicated that the Nintendo Switch is the most popular console ever for that Japanese firm. The story disclosed outperforming the Wii first-party sales even. Following in its quarterly report shares the system also outselling lifetime sales of the previous system too.
More interesting is how the highest performing console – the PlayStation 4 – has been left in the dust through the PlayStation 5.

The PlayStation 5 were able to sell more units despite a constraint on production which leaves many surprised.
According to VGChartz, the Nintendo Switch has outperformed the PlayStation 4 lifetime sales for the United States. The obvious caveat may be the four-year advantage the PlayStation 4 has released in 2013 when compared to 2022-released Nintendo Switch. But despite that, the web site says the Nintendo Switch comes with an 8.A million unit sold advantage when compared to PlayStation 4.

It appears the popularity will be definite as PlayStation 4 sales drop-off using the new PlayStation 5 to overshadow it.
