Super Smash Bros and PlayStation gift cards dominate Amazon 2018 chart

Switch and PS4 come out top at US retailer

The US arm of Amazon has revealed that Super Smash Bros Ultimate was the best-selling game at the retailer last year.

The game, which sold three million copies in just 11 days in the US, beat competition from PlayStation Store gift cards and a screen protector for Nintendo Switch.

It was a strong showing for Switch throughout the chart, with the console itself coming in at No.6. The next highest charting console was the NES Classic at No.17 and then the SNES Classic at No.26.

The chart highlights how Amazon has proven to be a popular destination for Switch customers, and it also shows the role traditional retailers can play in the digital space.
