The company revealed today that its hybrid home/handheld Switch was the top-selling gaming hardware for October, according to industry-tracking firm The NPD Group.

While Nintendo said it is going to do its best to have both consoles in stores, the flip side of that is that consumers shouldn't expect the company to offer much in the way of Black Friday deals that would seek to clear shelves.

YouTuber Candyland has kindly lined up the PlayStation 3 version against the PlayStation 4 version, the PS4 Pro version, and the Nintendo Switch version.

Skyrim Nintendo Switch Edition has already been compared to all the other consoles and it runs so well that Youtuber Arekkz Gaming chose to do a side by side comparison with the most powerful console right now, the Xbox One X on 1080p.

Nintendo said that its hardware - Switch, 3DS, SNES Classic Mini - accounted for "two-thirds of all video game hardware sold in the United States for the second month in a row".

Nintendo also said that the US 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.

So apart from a couple of bundles featuring cases themed to hit games "Super Mario Odyssey" and "Splatoon 2", there aren't additional holiday discounts from Nintendo. 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.
