Nintendo systems top hardware sales for October in the US

If you didn't already own a copy on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or the original PC version that made its way through Early Access before launching in full, you can grab a copy on the Switch if you're in the mood for a Minecraft-esque game for Nintendo's hybrid handheld gaming console. And while the Switch won't be able to match the graphical prowess of its rival consoles, Skyrim makes a pretty compelling case for why the Switch can still be a competitive version of Skyrim without reaching the same graphical heights. The PS4 and Xbox One versions are remastered, while the Nintendo Switch version is a feature-updated version. That marks third month that Nintendo has outsold Sony and Microsoft.

It's Mario time, and Mario time means Nintendo is going to sell some consoles.

The research firm NPD Group said Thursday that the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo SNES Classic were the top-selling consoles for October.

Nintendo followed up its stellar September by taking the top two spots on the USA hardware sales charts yet again in October, the company announced today.

Nintendo also said that the USA video game industry hit a high of more than 1 million units sold in October, a number that hasn't been hit since 2011.

The top selling video game of October was Super Mario Odyssey, which launched on October 27. Other notable Nintendo titles include Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, coming in at #10, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which grabbed the #11 spot.
