- Software Sales were up 31% YOY.
- NBA 2K18 was the best selling title, while Destiny 2 was 2nd.

Holy bleep, Destiny 2 couldn't outsell NBA? Yikes. 

Isn't basketball popular in America?



Pocky Lover Boy!

Either NBA 2K is a BEAST franchise, or Destiny sputtered. Of course, both could be true.



As a reminder, in the game's launch week Destiny 2 was down 58% at retail in the UK from 417k to 175k. Of course the growth of digital since 2014 will have compensated that somewhat, but it's probably fair to assume that Destiny 2 was down quite a lot in the UK and in the US as well.



Destiny will be number 1 when you add digital sales.

Very, but I didn't realize just how popular until I saw Welfare post on Gaf that NBA did 1.3 million last year. That makes the Destiny 2 number a little less worrying, though it's likely to still be down quite a bit from Destiny 1.

Do you have numbers for digital yet? (Not askin for numbers)



I'm assuming since no word that Switch was the best selling that PS4 won.

I miss when Sony use to at least mention if they won and gave us updates on total software sales. They've been quite ever since the Pro.

We didn't get word that Switch won August until after the public release.

Yeah, neither Nintendo nor Sony tend to comment when their systems are no. 1.
