"PlayStation 4 hardware dollar sales were also higher".

Nintendo's all-in-one retro console, the NES Classic Edition, was the bestselling piece of video game hardware for the month of June 2018, according to a USA market report from the NPD Group. Once again though, we saw Nintendo only produce them in pretty low numbers.

These new tariffs would affect about 38% of all American exports to China, which are worth about $170 billion in total. Still, two senior diplomats did meet earlier on Friday, on the sidelines of a regional summit in Singapore.

"This is the first time a Nintendo Entertainment System console has led in monthly unit sales since NPD tracking began in 1995", revealed analyst Mat Piscatella on Twitter.

That's no mean feat, especially when you remember that the NES Classic was only available for sale for a few days at the end of the month. It's also quite affordable, way more so than the regular consoles on the market for current games. Most recently, Nintendo added another way with the NES Classic - and it's paying off to the tune of the Classic flat-out beating every modern console in June. The PS4 still came top in terms of dollar sales, but then the NES Classic only costs $60 compared to the PS4 at $300. If this doesn't make you want to pick up an NES Classic Edition now (if you haven't already ), what will? With the Switch continuing to go from strength to strength, Nintendo is clearly finding ground in this void period while we wait for Sony or Microsoft to release their next generation of console. Interest has been strong for Nintendo's recent hardware, with the company struggling to meet demand initially for the NES Classic, SNES Classic, and even the Switch. - Let us know in the comments!
