Forums - Sales Discussion - Best selling 3rd party game for each Nintendo console since N64 in the US (NPD's Matt Piscatella)

I only have Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, but it's very enjoyable. I even got it on Steam back in 2016, and had a ton of fun again.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

PS4: 130 mil (was 100 million) Xbox One: 55 mil (was 50 mil) Switch: 110 million (was 73, then 96 million)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

Would've thought Just Dance was on there. Didn't think people spent that much on Guitar Hero!

Also how sad are third parties on Nintendo consoles...

It’s based on sales revenue, Guitar Hero World was sold  in price ranging fron 60$ to 150$, while Just Dance is normally 40$. 



Lego dimensions as number 1 on wii u is a bit of a surprise.

Idk what I expected, but I'd hope itd be like rayman legends.



     

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

I'm surprised WCW is the top for N64. WWF No Mercy was what I would expect to be #1.

Nice one Sonic. Although wasn't Sonic Advance the first Sonic game on a Nintendo system? Unless we're just talking home consoles

Am very surprised Just dance wasn't best selling 3rd party game on Wii though.

Bear in mind this is dollar sales; one or more of the Just Dance games probably sold more copies, but cos of the accessories Guitar Hero cost more per unit.

Disappointing to see Sonic Adventure 2 at the top, happy for Rabbids tho.

What were you hoping would be #1 for the GC?

I'm not sure what I expected for Wii U tbh, but yeah it sure wasn't LEGO Dimensions.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

A good game :P

Off the top of my head, either RE4 or SCII would have been nice to see at the top for me.

According to VGChartz for US territories, sales:
Just Dance - 3.48m
Just Dance 2 - 5.80m
Just Dance 3 - 5.95m
Just Dance 4 - 4.05m
Just Dance 14 - 1.91m
Just Dance 15 - 1.00m

Guitar Hero 3 - 3.04
Guitar Hero WT - 2.32
Guitar Hero 5 - 0.92



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

For comparison, these are the highest selling in terms of actual unit sales according to VGC:

N64 - Star Wars Episode 1 Racer

GCN - Sonic Adventure 2

Wii - Just Dance 3

Wii U - Minecraft

Switch - Mario + Rabbids, 



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
