Aug NPD results

Recommended Posts

Covers (8/4 - 8/31) 

 

Hardware

“Nintendo Switch was again the best-selling hardware platform of August and remains the best-selling platform of 2019,” NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said. “Nintendo Switch is the only platform with sales gains both in August as well as year to date.”

 

 

Software

"Five of the top 10 best-selling video games of August 2019 are Nintendo platform exclusives. Astral Chain launched as the 10th best-selling game of August, the only new release to place amongst the top 10 sellers of the month." 

 

Overall, 2019 is still on par with last year’s software sales, but that is due primarily to the newer of the three major console platforms.

“Year-to-date dollar sales of tracked video game software increased 1 percent, to $3.1 billion,” said Piscatella. “Nintendo Switch performance has driven the growth.”

Astral Chain barely came out on August 30th. So it was on the market for like 2-3 days?

 

Bayo 2 never made the NPD list in its launch month. And neither did Neir Automata in March 2017.

 

Looks like Platinum has just had its best product launch so far.:blessed:

Remember my thread "Control is a marketing disaster but..."

 

It was, it's a word of mouth game 100%. Sony, 505 and Remedy dropped the ball.

But I agree.. the marketing was lack luster.

Do people buy a copy of GTAV with every console purchase? Jesus, it should just be a pack-in title at this point.

I assume it's mostly PC sales, people getting banned online and rebuying etc.
