Switch outsold the PS4 and Xbox One last month in the US

SNES Mini also contributes to a successful month for Nintendo.

Nintendo registered another success last month with the Nintendo Switch being the number one best-selling console in the US, according to numbers Nintendo provided to the NPD Group.

Nintendo's hybrid console outsold the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the US in October, with the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System taking the second spot. "Two-thirds of all video game hardware sold in the United States for the second month in a row," Nintendo added.

Earlier this month Nintendo reported that it hopes to ship 25-30 million Switch units for 2018, so there's no shortage of ambition for the Japanese giant. Are these figures achievable?
