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

I'm surprised Crash did as poor as it did. The Crash Trilogy did amazing becoming a 10M+ seller and those were remakes of old games. I thought a new game would do even better but I guess not.

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

VGCs USA September 2020 currently:

NSW: 606k
PS4: 189k
XBO: 71k

@trunkswd we got numbers!

I'm adjusting our North American September numbers as we speak. US figures are a good indicator for Canada and Latin America.

Edit: Preadjustment we had figures of:

Switch - 747,000

PS4 - 224,000

Xbox One - 87,000

Here is the U.S September 2020 YoY change for all three consoles:

Switch up 55% YoY From September 2019

PS4 Down 20% YoY From September 2019

Xbox One Down 35% YoY From September 2019

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.

Mario 3D All Stars selling 1Million in less than 2 weeks in Physical U.S sales is amazing, likely half the sales are digital so we could assume it sold around 2 Million in the U.S in September alone. I would say it probably sold around 5 Million Globally in September, seems like it might hit 10 Million Before March 2021.



So is Switch overtracked here or undertracked ? Seems pretty close anyway so good job.

In the US, Switch and PS4 were overtracked and Xbox One was slightly undertracked. I've adjusted our figures now to match.

The trilogy most likely sold 10M+ because they were remakes of the old great games.

I think many doubted that Activision could make a great Crash game from scratch (myself included). Though, it actually does look like a fun game and I'll probably pick it up on PS5.



Welfare numbers are the correct ones



2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

How can Marvel's Avengers be #1 with 450K units while 3D All-Stars is at 1,165K? Is it because they have digital sales numbers for Avengers and they don't have them for 3D All-Stars?



Signature goes here!

Correct. Nintendo doesn't provide digital sales.
