Clearly Nintendo is holding a massive lead in the software sales with only 2 titles in the top not coming from the success of the Nintendo Switch. Speaking of , let’s take a look at how hardware sales did this week.

Switch – 27,897 (11,379,561)
Switch Lite – 10,483 (2,214,996)
PlayStation 4 Pro – 4,235 (1,534,754)
PlayStation 4 – 2,006 (7,588,444)
New 2DS LL (including 2DS) – 955 (1,714,162)
New 3DS LL – 73 (5,887,527)
Xbox One X – 20 (20,039)
Xbox One S – 12 (93,271)

Sales are slighty down from previous weeks but that’s only because, as in several other regions, Nintendo hardware is hard to come by lately.
