Forums - Sales Discussion - NPD November 2019: Switch #1, other details

https://gonintendo.com/stories/351106-npd-data-for-nov-2019-switch-1-hardware-pokemon-sword-shield

- Switch best selling hardware of the month and Year to Date

- Smash Bros Ultimate now best selling fighting game in US, ever

- Pokemon Sword/Shield have highest launch month dollar sales in the series history

- Overall gaming market spending down 19% from 2018 (Mostly thanks to PS4/Xbone decline)



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Yeah sadly that seems to be a thing of the past, I can't remember the last month we got actual numbers.

If any do come I will update the OP.

I'd be happy for some leaked numbers.

We don't get direct numbers anymore.  We get leaks with mathematical equations that give us an approximation of what somethings sold.

We can take this as early confirmation that Switch accomplishes the sweep in 2019 because a December win is a given. Such a sweep hasn't happened often, so it's something special.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Not often is there such a big gap between platform releases. Usually consoles in the same gen are released the most one year (2 tops) apart from each other. Switch was over 3 years after the PS4 and Xbox One and just under 3 years before PS5 and Xbox Series X.

Call of Duty is #1 my ass! Pokemon takes spots 3, 4, and 5. Meanwhile Call of Duty is two different platforms combined. I know that if they actually reported numbers Pokemon would have crushed Call of Duty. NPD makes some of these third party franchises seem a lot bigger than they really are while downplaying Nintendo first party as much as possible.

Pokémon would be #2 on the revenue chart without the illogical split of its SKUs.
