Those Fallen Order numbers are unreal.  It is selling about twice as much as Call of Duty!

If any developer needed an unambiguous success, it was Respawn. And if any publisher needed to be shown it can still make $$$ without microtransactions, it was EA!

JFO is going to take the number one spot in December NPD this time for sure unless Modern Warfare has monstrous digital sales ahead of JFO which I doubt about it.
I'm not so sure about Pokemon Sword being above MK8D and SSBU anymore based on those numbers heck even LM3 might be charted above Pokemon Sword.

Death Stranding with an awful leg and probably didn't even have any chance of surpassing Days Gone number, to begin with.

A big Thanks to you OP for providing those awesome pieces of information.

You're welcome, LGBTDBZBBQ! I'll be sure to continue this year, and please send in requests!
My new year's resolution for this project: remember to check Ring Fit Adventure. It completely slipped my mind at the same time the casuls were probably snapping it up during the holidays.

Forgot to check Luigi's Mansion again...

Damn, JFO is looking really great with that monstrous sales. Perhaps it may have a shot at taking the number one spot in December NPD.  Benji also tweets something similar about it.


MK8 and Smash Bros also may have a shot at placing in the top 10. 

My prediction for the NPD December's top 10

1.Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
2.Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019
3.Pokémon Sword
4.Madden NFL 20
5.Mario Kart 8
6.Luigi’s Mansion 3
7.NBA 2K20
8.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
9.Pokemon Shield
Just Dance 2020

Actual result

  1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019
  2. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
  3. Madden NFL 20
  4. NBA 2K20
  5. Luigi’s Mansion 3*
  6. Pokemon Sword*
  7. Mario Kart 8*
  8. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate*
  9. Pokemon Shield*
  10. Minecraft#

Only Smash Bros Ultimate and Pokemon Shield are in the correct placement lol. 

Wow, Mario Kart is still consistently #1. Even with Pokemon being a recent release, Mario Kart sells about the same (or better). Not bad for a Wii U port.
