256k is including digital which is not factored in the NPD rankings.

If Nintendo gave digital numbers to NPD than it could very well have ranked higher.

Actually the 256k number is from nintendo.... and thats with digital.

However I think it safe to assume a much higher amount of people also go Crash Bandicoot digitally.

isnt that what i said?

the 256k figure includes digital but if you look at the OP, Nintendo does not offer digital info to NPD so the NPD rankings for ARMS does not include digital while Crash does include digital.

You dont get what he means. He is saying that since nintendo didnt share digital woth npd, we cant use that base formula for crash.

 

I still think crash beat arms by a good amount but 370k isnt the floor (minimum) is where he is getting at

So even with huge supply issues, Switch outsells Xbox one every month it has been out.

I'm not sure how "big" being down 28 percent is, but being up over 60 percent is gotta be super huge.

Well, it clearly had supply issues but not a huge one since 216k was out there in that one month.



Wow Forza Horizon 3 at #5 on the X1 charts, amazing.



Proud to be a Californian.

256k for ARMS is really good imo.

Think how much money that is at 60$.... 256,000 x 60$ = #5.

I think its more impressive that Crash Bandicoot at 40$, and supply issues managed to get #4, with just 2 days of sale.

Wonder if Crash Bandicoot did more than 370k in June (NPD) in the US?

I dont want this to become some kind of war, but both did decent to good.ARMS is obviously limited to what I assume is a market of 1.5 to 2 million Switches.Crash is an old game with a fresh paint over it and managed to sell this much.

I say congrats to both.

It's hard to tell. My theory is that nothing has changed as those numbers are what I'd expect if the XB1X was never announced. 

Possibly. Switch is obviously stealing some customers from both as a main system, as well as splitting some time for both as a second system. I don't see Switch taking all that many away from both right at the moment though. With the limted supply, it should still be mostly dedicated NiN fans buying up Switch, which wouldn't make too much difference for PS or XB just yet.

While there are other reasons why PS4 sales would have increased, I have to assume the $500 price point of XB1X scared some of the $399/$449 hopeful away. This would be the perfect opportunity for Pro to scoop them up with an increase in availability.

Really? If switch never existed and I was looking at the weekly numbers and NPD numbers I wouldn't think there was anything odd about them in a way that there should be more.

supply issues has nothing to do with how much it sold, its about the relation between supply and demand.

For example, if 220k people tried to get a Switch in June than that means 98% of them were able to find one. Not really much of a supply issue.

However, if 400k people tried to get one in June than that means just over half of them were able to find one. Thats a pretty significant supply issue.

Poor PS4



Good ass year for fighting games.



So our earlier predictions were not that far off compared to the real numbers.

Only a few major differences.

Jan- Spot on
Feb- ~5k XB1
March- ~10k PS4, ~7k XB1
April- ~7k PS4, ~17k XB1

Also of note, with the new leaked charts and Aquamarine charts we have pretty much exact data for PS4, XB1, Switch. So at least with US and Japan we know everything.
