The Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch were the best-selling consoles of June in the United States, as revealed by the NPD (via GamesBeat). Both consoles come out on top in different respects. While the Nintendo Switch sold more units, the Xbox Series X/S has it beat in terms of dollar sales, which is down to the fact that the Xbox Series X is much costlier.

The Xbox Series X/S saw a boost in sales following E3, and dollar sales for the console in the month have set a new record for Xbox platform dollar sales, beating a record previously let in June of last year. The Nintendo Switch, meanwhile, remains the best-selling console of the year to date in the United States, in terms of both dollar and unit sales.

The PS5, meanwhile, is still suffering from stock shortages, but continues to sell at an impressive rate, all things considered. It is still the fastest selling home console in the US to date.

Overall, hardware spending in the US for June stands at $401 million, 112% more than June 2020, and the highest total since June 2008’s $617 million. Year-to-date hardware spending stands at $2.3 billion, up 45% from June 2020.

On the software side of things, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart topped the charts, while Mario Golf: Super Rush and Scarlet Nexus also enjoyed solid debuts. Read more on that through here.
