Nintendo Switch remains the best-selling console for 2019, according tomedia. According to a recent report by NPD Group analyst Matt Piscatella, Switch again topped the list in November, taking into account the arrival of the holidays, the aging of competitor hardware and its own presence in a number of game games that attract players. So there’s no reason why you don’t think December will be any different.
Despite Switch’s success, the amount of time players spend on video game hardware fell 19 percent overall in November. Looking back at the entire gaming industry — including hardware, software, and accessories — we’ll see that spending so far this year is down 12 percent from the same period in 2018.
In the software category, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 was the best-selling game of all the major platforms in November, followed by Star Wars Jedi: The Fallen Order, Pokemon Go: Sword and Shield. In addition, “Modern Warfare” has also topped the list of sales so far this year. NBA 2K20, Madden NFL 20, Borderlands 3 and Mortal Kombat 11 followed.
With Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox on Game Awards, the gaming industry will have a bright future. The Xbox X Series X will reportedly have four times as much processing power as the Xbox One X.
However, the specific hardware configuration and price have not been disclosed, but it looks like a desktop.
Sony is also expected to launch the PlayStation 5 at the same time.
