Nintendo Switch Becomes The Best-Selling Nintendo Console In The US

Super Mario Party surpassed lifetime USA sales of 1 million units, becoming the fastest-selling game in the Mario Party series and the fifth million-selling first-party Nintendo Switch game in the US alone, joining The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2.

EBay has launched a 15% sale until midnight on November 28, with numerous prices topping what we saw during the Black Friday sale. The Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday deal is available on Amazon for $299.

Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are behind us, gamers need to know - which console "won" the Thanksgiving weekend battle?

USA shoppers provided a nice boost to Nintendo's balance sheet last weekend. Ultimate in December, but would the Switch, still priced at $300, really be able to compete with $200 PS4 and Xbox One bundles?

Super Mario Party surpassed 1 million units sold in the USA, becoming the fastest-selling game in the Mario Party series and the fifth million-selling first-party Nintendo Switch title joining The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2. Nintendo announced Super Smash Bros.

You could spend it across a few indie games, like Stardew Valley, Celeste, Undertale, Dead Cells, and a bevy of other satisfying hits.

A $120 controller, plus a $70 game, for that much is pretty good. First, it applies only to the United States; Nintendo hasn't released new worldwide sales figures.

For most of 2018, Nintendo Switch sales have been somewhat sluggish due to a lack of compelling software.

Lifetime combined sales of Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon crossed 2.2 million.
