Prepare for the storm that will come in September NPD

Neonridr32d ago

what about the November / December storm when Pokemon and then Smash launch for the Switch? No doubt September and most likely October will belong to Sony, but I see it flipping around again come the holidays. Good to see both systems are selling very well. As for Microsoft.... well... A for effort.

"As for Microsoft.....well... A for effort."

Are you kidding me? I wouldn't call it effort. They haven't release a *great* exclusive game in years besides Forza if you're into Racers.

@Ninja_Ryu - I didn't know what else to say for them. That was sort of like a consolation, well I have nothing nice to say to you so I will just give you a pat on the head..

Between the Switch and their plug and play platforms they are making a killing. Even the 3DS despite age, smart devices and the Switch is hanging in there.

“NPD’s video game analyst Mat Piscatela notes that since 2000, Madden NFL Football has been the best-selling game of August every year.”

Yup you van pretty much claim Madden to win NPD every August it comes out

That is impressive to do that for 18 years straight, I will give props where they are

It didn’t do it every year straight. The article mentions” with the exceptions of 2011 and 2012, when Madden NFL launched in the September tracking period.”

The article also says “What’s especially notable about 2019, though, is that it marks the fastest-selling game of the entire series and the highest sales overall since Madden 2013.”

Haha, well I take that back. Still good though.
