The Japanese company joins Microsoft in assuring that it won’t be raising hardware prices. This follows regional price increases by Sony for the PS5.

Dollar sales for video game hardware reached $362 million last month, a 12 percent increase over last year, though year-to-date spending is down.

Global supply shortages have hampered sales for most electronic hardware over the last couple of years, and it doesn’t look like the situation is going to change anytime soon.

According to industry insider Tom Henderson, Sony could be introducing several new hardware by the end of this month.

Evil Dead: The Game debuted in fourth place, while on the hardware front, the Nintendo Switch dominated in terms of both unit and dollar sales.

Another leaker has claimed that Rockstar is preparing both Red Dead Redemption games for current console hardware.

It’s the fourth highest unit-selling console in US history and the sixth best unit-selling video game hardware overall, as per The NPD Group.

Nintendo knows that it hasn’t always had the best success with generational hardware transitions, and hopes to avoid that with the Switch’s successor.

However, two years ago, Nintendo’s Shuntaro Furukawa was adamant about no new hardware, says Bloomberg’s Takashi Mochizuki.
