Nintendo Switch exceeds PS4 lifetime sales

As of late 2022, the Nintendo Switch has now officially passed the lifetime sale of Sony’s PlayStation 4 console. Given the ever-present power of the Nintendo Switch since it was first released in 2017, it seemed only a matter of time before Nintendo’s latest video game console would surpass the PS4 in terms of overall sales. And while Sony still has the best-selling console ever, the Switch is certainly starting to close that gap.

As of today, Nintendo has announced in its new finacial report that the Nintendo Switch has now sold a total of 122.55 million units worldwide. When we last heard about the Switch, its total sales total was just over 114 million. However, in the last quarter of 2022, Nintendo was able to sell 8.22 million Switch, Switch Lite, and Switch OLED consoles, bringing the total to this aforementioned figure.

Due to this holiday sales surge, the Nintendo Switch has now eclipsed the PS4’s final sales total by about 5 million units. Sony stopped sharing sales data for the PS4 not long ago, meaning the console’s final count came in at 117.2 million.

In addition to passing the PS4, the Nintendo Switch has now also surpassed the combined sales of the Game Boy and Game Boy Color, which reached 118 million units. Currently, the Switch is the third best-selling console of all time, trailing only the Nintendo DS and PlayStation 2. The PS2, in particular, remains the best-selling console ever, shipping over 155 million units. So if the Switch is ever going to overtake Sony’s previous hardware, it has a lot to make up for in the coming years.

Do you think the Switch has a chance of eventually becoming the best-selling console ever? Or will the PS2 remain king of the hill? Let me know in the comments or give me a call on Twitter @MooreMan12.
