Hardware Comparison Threads:
This month should be a bloodbath for Switch and X1 be a spot on the radar, PS4 doing somewhat stable.
Lol. I was about to sum it up almost the exact same way.
Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."
NS - 480K
PS4 - 200K
XBO - 100K
Mat Piscatella has written in twitter:
"Eh, late note for the release, but Nintendo Switch hardware drove the highest unit sales for a September month since the PlayStation 4 in September 2014. Great month for Switch."
I understand it as less than PS4-Sep-14 (538k) but more than PS4-Sep-18 (421k).
421k < NSW < 538k
Not very accurate but that is what we have.
Switch continues to kill it.
Gears 5 debuting at #7 was surprising considering GamePass.
Anthem is one of the best selling games of 2019 😬
Top selling games of the last year for each console, MicroSony both loaded with multiplats and one exclusive, Nintendo beasting with 9 exclusives and Spyro. Truly a unique console.
Yayyy no numbers again
Here is some information we do have from NPD that was posted in our monthly US sales article:
The Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console in the US in September 2019, according to figures from NPD.
Overall spending on hardware dropped 22 percent year-on-year to $240 million, while spending on software dropped four percent to $732 million. Overall spending on video games fell eight percent to $1.278 billion.
NBA 2K20 was the best-selling game in the US in September and is already the best-selling game of 2019.
Borderlands 3 debuted in second place and had the best launch in franchise history. It is also already the third best-selling game in 2019.
Gears 5 debuted in seventh place. While it might appear to be a low debut for one of the biggest franchises on the Xbox, the game was available day one on Game Pass.
Here are the top 20 best-selling games in terms of dollars:
*Does not include digital sales
^Does not include Steam digital sales
#Only includes digital sales for PlayStation 4 and Xbox one
Yayyy no numbers again
We're probably never getting numbers again. NPD has deemed them top secret and off-limits to the public, and they've successfully silenced all the leakers. Unless a bunch of people pitch in for the $10,000 to buy a report or an actual competitor crops up (maybe we'll get lucky and Famitsu opens up a U.S. branch), then it's over. The best we have are the "best guess" hardware estimates from the Era threads. Truly a sad time for people who enjoy discussing game sales.
