Not EA but the whole Phil Spencer saying single player games are dead and Ubisoft have a lovely pie chart about how to turn everything into a service.

Also companies like them don't post sales numbers for engagement numbers instead now.

Lot's of numbers today as companies are posting financial reports on the last quarter.

I'll start with Nintendo and the Switch that has now sold 22.86m SKUs LTD which means it has past the GameCube and only 10m away from the N64. For this fiscal year, the Switch has sold 5.07m units which 3.19m was from the last quarter, Nintendo has a forecast of 20m for this fiscal year, meaning the Switch has to sell 14.93m units in the next two quarters to meet this forecast.

Along with the hardware, software numbers were released for the Nintendo published games in the million club:

Super Mario Odyssey - 12.17 million
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - 11.71 million
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - 10.28 million
Splatoon 2 - 7.47 million
1-2-Switch - 2.64 million
Mario Tennis Aces - 2.16 million
ARMS - 2.10 million
Kirby Star Allies - 2.10 million
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze - 1.67 million
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 - 1.53 million




Now to PlayStation as the PS4 has now sold over 86m SKUs LTD making it the 6th best selling game system passing the PS3 and Xbox 360 but still 15m behind the Wii in 5th. Much like the Switch, Sony sold 3.9m consoles last quarter and have raised it's forecast for this financial year to 17.5m.




As I'm here let's look at the UK Chart

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the UK's Number 1 and had the second best launch of the year behind FIFA 19 which is on 3 more systems and not an 18, that it is understandable.

Few other things on RDR2 it sold double RDR but only did 27% of what GTAV did, most believe this is down to digital games which the UK Chart doesn't track.

For each format, the Number 1 games look like this:

PS3 FIFA 19
PS4 RDR2
PSP Brother in Arms D-Day
VITA Call of Duty Black Ops Declassified
360 RDR
ONE RDR 2
Wii Just Dance 2019
WiiU Just Dance 2019
Switch Super Mario Party
DS Style Boutique
3DS Mario Kart 7
PC Call of Duty Black Ops 4

I think that with the massive file size encouraging loads of folks to preload, I can imagine a huge chunk of RDR2's sales coming from digital platforms.

I've since seen it's had the biggest entertainment opening ever and is the best launch ever on PSN for a full priced release.

I saw Just Dance 2019 was out as it's taken over the Wii-U eShop. Love that the Wii is still getting occasional releases too.

Where are the PSP numbers coming from? Is that new stock? Didn't think a PSP game had been released in 5+ years. Also interesting to see a COD game topping the VITA charts as that system is kept alive by Japanese imports these days.

On Just Dance, three of them are in the Top 20 Wii U games with 2017 being a new entry as well.

Yep chart track still tracks PSP and DS, they only show Top 2 PSP games now though and Top 5 for DS (sorry Jay, I know how much you liked seeing the Top 10 for these). I guess much like that Game Gear game that was recently in the NPD, if it's new and sells through somewhere they track it will be knowledge.

The VITA one is odd as like your say it's mainly about the few (imports wouldn't count) Japanese games that come out but I guess same with RDR being number 1 360 game is the series is on people's minds.

Treesmurf has jokingly said about trying to get a PSP game to chart but I'm not sure where Chart Track Track, I would guess Amazon
