Switch got to rule the summer, but now that fall is here, the chart is going to get all sorts of mixed up. Exciting times ahead.

September goes to Playstation, October... is more tricky, especially for NPD.

The Fortnite bundle still counts for September in NPD and the Smash bundle will count for October despite them releasing in October and November respectively.

Due to this I think Nintendo will win October NPD thanks to Smash bundle being counted there but loose WW, looses November NPD since Smash bundle not counted for the month but wins WW, and wins December on all markets due to Smash and Pokémon.

Wow, that is confusing.  I naively thought a bundle released in November would count in November's numbers.

Not impressed with Shenmue. And this’ll be super-frontloaded as well, I don’t see it breaking half a million. Maybe 300k will already be a hard enough target, but we’ll see come holidays if there’s a bump.



I expected My Little Dragons Cafe to sell better on Switch than PS4, but I'm surprised that My Heroes One's Justice is also selling better on Switch. Switch takes over also as platform for fighting games? Or is this an outlier?

It could get even worse with NPD: The Smash bundle comes with a download code for Smash Ultimate. Will those even get counted? And if they do, for which month, October or December? Just imagine Smash winning October despite releasing only 2 months later...

Heh, I would guess the hardware would be counted in October and the software in December.  Don't know though.  It would be funny to see Smash chart in October.

Surprised to see Shenmue on top 2



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019
