Forums - Sales Discussion - September NPD 2020 thread: Switch 670K, PS4 160K, XBO 91K

I wish we got more specific numbers on how the Switch is doing YoY this month in the U.S. We know that its up YoY from September 2019 which is a great sign cause the Switch Lite launched on Sep 2019 and still was up YoY. I'm just wonder how much higher it is YoY in September and how it compares to other consoles Septembers in the past. Maybe we'll get a leak of NPD numbers eventually though.

I'd be all for some hardware leaks. They do help make our figures more accurate.

Hope leaks come soon. Already pinged our leaker on Era.

NPD says HW spending was up YoY by 15% up to $277M this September, and also clarified that only NSW was up YoY. That would very roughly peg NSW at 650-700K (depending on OG/Lite split) for the 5 week period.



Got quick software leak (physical only for all three titles).

Avengers 450K
Mario All Stars 1,165K
ACNH 180K

So Avengers digital must be >715K.

Mario with 50% digital split would be >2.3M, which is bonkers, should be outperforming Mario Odyssey outside of Japan.  ACNH has been at 60% digital outside of Japan, so sounds like a 450-500K month.

Here's HW!

NSW 666,400

PS4 158,300

XBO 91,500

NSW misses all time record vs. Wii 08 by 21K.  Second highest Sep of all time (even ahead of NDS) and only the second time we've crossed 600K in September.

EDIT: Welfare on Era says:

670K

160K

91K

Let's see, what did I predict:

NSW] 766K
[PS4] 153K
[XBO] 72K

Damn, I should really have gone with my first choice of 666K for the Switch instead of adding another 100K on top of that!

And with that number, no wonder the Switch is beasting!

Not far off with the PS4, but underestimated the XBO - but looks like I'm one of the closer ones here in that regard.



Crash not even in the top 10, yikes. Hopefully it'll have legs

I fear that Crash has, well, crashed
