August 2017 NPD Thread ! Switch Won

Forums - Sales Discussion - August 2017 NPD Thread ! Switch Won

"Sony’s PlayStation 4 continues to be the best-selling hardware platform year to date."

Fantastic to see ps4 still #1 for the year. Also great to hear Switch is doing good and taking this month.

Gta V #2 is nuts. Wildlands still #1 for the year is impressive.

Great to hear the lost legacy was a success in America and that's not including many who bought it.

And lol @intrinsic
I have to agree with you. So many leakers come across as strange, over sensitive, attention seeking individuals. I want leaks but I could do without the shenanigans.

Without actual numbers, it's quite difficult to grasp the realtive sucess of a game to be honest.

I'm guessing the PS4 and Switch were pretty close, again. I wonder if the Switch will be able to overtake the PS4 by the end of the year.

It would be a close battle if switch wont be supply restraint this holiday season. Ps4 is up around 200k too so that helps



Alright time for this month's numbers

NSW: 12 kabillion

PS4: π

XBO: 💩



Nice to see that the Switch is still fairing really well in the US!But yeah, outsid eof the XOne, great month for everyone



So, GTAV was 3rd last month and is 2nd this month. I cannot fathom how many units this game is selling as it is a $30.

And yeah, Lost Legacy did great all things considered - $40 / season pass.

That and ethomaz thinking it was a good idea to post the numbers on GAF.

Honestly I don't get what the issue is with these "sources" we have. I have always found them to be a bunch of emos that seem to be super sensitive and delicate and take shit too personally. 

You wanna leak something, do it..... let everyone else tear themselves apart and make themselves look stupid. If I were them, I personally would laugh at everyone in my head that says the numbers are fake.

And call me crazy; but am I the only one that knows that this being an open site would mean there  will be people that come on just to piss on the numbers simply cause they are here and not "there".

Posting NPD numbers is a significant risk for them. So I don't see what the issue is with them taking things personally. Whatever their reasons for posting numbers, they are putting their necks on the line and people should be cogniscent of that fact.



Every month the Switch wins no.1 is another month that developers will start to internally green light more Switch content.

Like for example ... GTAV on Switch ... it has to have crossed Rockstar's mind by now.

Zelda: BotW is also the definite killer app for the Switch in North America, no doubts about it. Whereas in Europe and Japan it's lower on the charts in the US, it's still hanging up with the big boys. Japan is all about Splatoon. ARMS and 1,2 Switch have fallen off completely in the US. Mario Kart is gonna Mario Kart.
