The entire North America sales data for February 2021 has been released by the NPD group, and this year the industry continues to shape up well. February numbers were so impressive especially year-on-year with players spending $4.6 billion on games, additional hardware, and content. Comparing to February 2020, that’s up 35%.

Hardware sales were particularly noticeable, up 121% year-on-year, with both the Switch and PS5 setting records. The PlayStation 5 is the fastest-selling console based on dollars generated in US history after four months on the market, although Switch did beat it, which had the best February of any console since the Wii in 2009. As of March, Switch has crossed the DS, making it the second best-selling Nintendo platform of all time behind the Wii.
