Quote

Nintendo also sold the most consoles with its NES Classic.
 

“This is the first time a Nintendo Entertainment System console has led in monthly unit sales since NPD tracking began in 1995,” said Piscatella.

Also, hardware went up significantly while software didn't. It's not because people aren't playing; F2P has changed things up, specifically Fortnite. Also from Mat:

Anyways, yes, Fortnite is a primary driver of Hardware overperformance. I think it's had a massive impact on Xbox One, a very strong impact on Switch in June, and a marginal impact to PS4. Fortnite's been a significant, and primary, contributor to ACC & GC growth year on year as well. I can't remember another game (perhaps Guitar Hero?) that has had as much likely impact to the HW demand curve as Fortnite is now, although I'm sure I'm missing something.
