The Nintendo Switch held onto its top spot in U.S. hardware sales in August 2017, despite monthly hardware sales falling six percent compared to the same period last year.

However, overall hardware sales in 2017 are up 17 percent versus the same period in 2016, totaling $1.7 billion so far, despite only selling $168 million worth of hardware in August 2017.

Despite the Switch topping its rivals in March, April, July, and August, PlayStation 4 remains 2017’s top-selling console. It will be interesting to see if the Switch can continue to compete (and if Nintendo can supply enough consoles to satisfy consumer demand) during the quickly approaching holiday sales season.

Meanwhile, sales of the Xbox One and previous generation consoles “declined” this month compared to August 2016.

Spit white-hot fanboy hate at him, trash talk his Gold II rank on Rocket League, or maybe just send him a cordial hello on Twitter @gogogoroff.

The Nintendo Switch just won’t stop dominating the hardware charts

Should PlayStation and Xbox be worried yet?
