NES Classic Makes History, Surpasses PS4 and Xbox One


For the first time since 1995, Nintendo managed to surpass its arch-rivals Sony and Microsoft on the gaming consoles front.

The NES Classic, a tribute to the golden age of gaming, was the best-selling game console in June, a first since 1995, the year in which NPD tracking started.

Of course, the price point could be a big reason, since the cute NES Classic retails for only $59, while the PS4 and Xbox One go for more than triple the price. However, it’s clear that classic games can still outperform modern offerings.

The NES Classic packs a big nostalgic punch, coming preloaded with games like Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong and several Legend of Zelda titles. If the console actually supported old-school cartridges, we’d not be surprised to see it at #1 in the following months as well.

Clearly, the past two years have been Nintendo’s time to shine. The Nintendo Switch was selling like hotcakes too, even though it had a rocky, bug-ridden launch.
