However, it is worth mentioning that the numbers among Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 were extremely close this month, with the difference in revenue from the top console to the third one being of only 3%.

Starbreeze Studios' "Payday 2", a four-player cooperative shooter that focuses on planning, staging, and performing massive heists, is headed for the Nintendo Switch later this week, but recent news has surfaced that the portable version of the game might be the most outdated one yet.

The Nintendo Switch version of Payday 2 is going to be the game's most outdated, on any platform. According to the latest NPD sales data, Nintendo Switch is the best selling gaming machine in the U.S for the month of January.

The footage sparked an investigation by players that tried to determine exactly which update the Switch version is running.

According to a Starbreeze representative, the Switch version will be on par with the Most Wanted update that released on other consoles during the middle of 2017.

Confusion ballooned when a Reddit thread speculated about Switch getting an older version of the game.

The content available at launch is up to and including the Most Wanted update available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with future updates planned as well.

"The reasoning for the Switch content: we're making continuous updates to a game that's turning five years old this year, and to get the game out in early 2018 on Switch meant that our team had to go with the content ported and available at the time of console submission", Starbreeze told the site. We understand some of you were disappointed expecting a later version of the game at launch. Case in point, the Most Wanted update that the Switch will release in is equivalent to Update 117 on PC and came out almost two years ago.

Payday 2 launches on Nintendo Switch February 27, 2017.
