PlayStation 5, Sony’s next generation console, which made its debut in the past months, has achieved a new success. PlayStation 5 has become the fastest selling console in American history.
According to the report published by the NPD Group, PlayStation 5 is the fastest selling console in the history of America in terms of sales of 5 dollars. In addition, NPD Group, in its report published for February 2021, says that PlayStation 5 sold the most hardware in February in the United States, and Nintendo Switch is in second place.
This record of PlayStation 5 was previously owned by Nintendo Switch. Both unit and dollar sales of the Switch in January surpassed the record for the Nintendo Wii in February 2009. When we look at the other statistics in the published report, the sales of video game hardware and accessories in the United States in February 2021 increased by 35% compared to the same period of the previous year, in other words, sales of $ 4.6 billion were made.
What will be the rate in the coming months rather than February is a big curiosity. In the past year, many people turned to hardware shopping due to the epidemic. The stock problems experienced this year will also greatly affect these sales.
