The best selling console for June was once again the PlayStation 4. In addition to the Switch still being supply-constrained, the PS4 was heavily discounted in June down to $249.99 for the gold 1TB model. This was a fantastic deal and it obviously pushed sales in a month where things typically slow down for consoles.
