Forums - Sales Discussion - [France] Review of the French video game market 2018

Also worth noting that 9 of the 20 bestselling titles (by volume) are from Nintendo. Really shows how well they are doing, and what legs they are (MK8D is third overall both by volume and by money despite having released last year already)

the fact that Mario Kart 8 deluxe almost outsold Black Ops IIII is fucking insane

Also FIFA 19 over 150K on Switch retail alone is very good



2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 11m, XB1 4m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, 9m PS4 and 3m XB1, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

2.52 million home console sold.
1.13 million are Switch, confirmed by Nintendo.
So 1.39 million for PS4 and XB1. (Imo i'm guessing around 1.2 million for PS4 so 190k for XB1)

269K handhelds console. 254K are 3DS, so 15K between Vita, DS and PSP. Actually that's higher than expected...

Wasn't Switch the best-selling console in France during 2018, though? 1.13 million should be the absolute maximum for PS4.

Forgot about that. Now that i think about this, Home consoles also includes 360 and PS3 (and Wii to be very precise), if DS+PSP+PSV sold 15K, is very possible PS3+360+Wii sold 50-70K.

I know for sure that XB1 can't be much higher than 200K.

Heh, I know FIFA is a popular game, but this is the first time I've ever seen it chart 3 times at once. France really is all about FIFA, with occassional breaks to play those other games that just happen to be on the chart somewhere below FIFA. FIFA!

Ps4 reined supreme for 2018 Software.

Yes, Sony has good figures, but Switch figures are pretty impressive too. The gap is not so pronounced (around 10%).

Anyway, great numbers for both ^^

Yeah switch very good too. I didn't comment because I'm mainly interested in the ps4. Sometimes I'll mention the switch

I wonder if the fact that they won the World Cup helped FIFA's sales :p

Don't know.  Anyone have the France sales chart for last year?
