The Nintendo Switch was the best selling console for December, in the crucial US market.

1.5 million Switch consoles were sold in December according to data collected by NPD, which brings the total number of Switch consoles in the US to 4.8 million.

Nintendo added to their already good results with strong sales for the portable 3DS console, which sold 1.1 million units, the best Christmas the portable console has had since 2014. When added together, Nintendo accounted for over half of all hardware sales in December.

Microsoft's Xbox One console also had a good Christmas by beating longtime rivals PS4 to second place.

While Sony's console had to settle for last place among the home based consoles, it is actually the PS4 that's leading the sales charts, with 74 million consoles sold worldwide already.
