Gaming Industry Sales Figures and Charts

Recommended Posts

As they sort of said, it'd be interesting to see if there was a spike in gamepass for Crackdown. 

 

I'm also willing to bet Far Cry has done ok with digital. I can believe its not done as well as Primal but I think Primal released later in the year

NPD (US) January 2019 sales data

 

 

Quote

Gaming fans in the United States spent $893 million at U.S. retailers and on full-game digital downloads in January, according to industry-tracking firm The NPD Group. That’s down 19 percent from the same period in 2018. Those sales declines are largely due to a tough comparison because 2018 was such a huge year for both hardware and software sales. January 2018 also saw the release of Monster Hunter: World, one of the industry’s big successes last year.

“All segments of spending reflected double-digit percentage declines when compared to January 2018,” NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said. “Despite declines when compared to a year ago, January 2019 spending was the second highest market total achieved in a January month since the $917 million reached in January 2013.”

 

Big releases like Kingdom Hearts III, Resident Evil 2, and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe helped power those sales. But they faced an extremely tough comparison to Monster Hunter: World, which ended 2018 as the No. 9 best-selling game in the United States as tracked by NPD.

Here are results from January 2019

  • Total: $893 million (down 19 percent from $1.101 billion in January 2018)
  • Hardware: $199 million (down 28 percent from $278 million)
  • PC and console software: $427 million (down 18 percent from $520 million)
  • Accessories and game cards: $267 million (down 12 percent from $303 million)

It’s important to keep in mind that NPD does not include digital microtransaction and DLC sales in these numbers. So if a game like Fortnite is sucking up a lot of cash, you would not see that reflected here.

Also, be sure to check out the best-selling games and financial results for all of 2018 in our story right here.

Let’s do the software charts.

Software

NPD tracks physical sales at retailers, but it also gets digital data directly from publishers. But not every company participates. For example, Nintendo doesn’t share its first-party sales, and Activision Blizzard does not provide its Battle.net sales.

These charts are sorted by dollar sales — not number of units sold. 

The best-selling games of January 2019 in the U.S.

  1. Kingdom Hearts III
  2. Resident Evil 2 2019
  3. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe*
  4. Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII**
  5. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate*
  6. Red Dead Redemption II
  7. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown
  8. NBA 2K19
  9. Mario Kart 8*
  10. Grand Theft Auto V
  11. Madden NFL 19**
  12. Tales Of Vesperia
  13. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild*
  14. Battlefield V^
  15. Super Mario Party*
  16. Minecraft***
  17. Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey
  18. Marvel’s Spider-Man
  19. FIFA 19**
  20. Super Mario Odyssey*

*Digital sales not included
**PC digital not included
***Digital for Xbox and PlayStation included, but not PC or Nintendo eshop

Overall, software was down due primarily to sales on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Those consoles saw a sharp year-over-year decline in game sales. Again, that is likely because Monster Hunter: World launched in January 2018.

“Dollar sales of tracked console, portable and PC game software totaled $427 million, an 18 percent declined compared to a year ago,” said Piscatella. “Double-digit percentage software sales growth on the Nintendo Switch platform was offset by declines across all other platforms.”

Kingdom Hearts III

“Kingdom Hearts III was the best-selling game of January 2019,” said Piscatella. “Total launch month dollar sales of Kingdom Hearts III were 2.5-times that of the previous franchise best, Kingdom Hearts II, which debuted on the PlayStation 2 in the March 2006 tracking period. This is the second month in history that a Kingdom Hearts game has topped the best-sellers chart; Kingdom Hearts II was the best-selling game of April 2006.”

Resident Evil 2

“Resident Evil 2 ranked second on January’s best-sellers chart, driving more than 2.8-times higher dollar sales than the launch month of the original Resident Evil 2, which was released in the January 1998 tracking period on PlayStation,” said Piscatella. “It was January’s best-selling game on the Xbox One platform.”

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

“New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe entered the January charts as the third best-selling game of the month, “said Piscatella. “Launch month dollar sales of New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe were more than 30 percent higher than that of New Super Mario Bros. U, which launched on the Wii U in November 2012.”

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

“Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown set a new franchise record as launch month dollar sales totaled more than 80 percent higher than October 2007’s Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation,” said Piscatella.

The best-selling games of the last 12 months

  1. Red Dead Redemption II

Week Ending 23/02 UK Chart roundup

 

Quote

Anthem comfortably claimed No.1 in the UK boxed charts last week.


The EA game performed best on PS4, accounting for 54 per cent of sales. 40 per cent came on Xbox One, with the remainder on PC.

The game sold comfortably more than last week's big new games, including Far Cry: New Dawn and Metro Exodus. But it isn't the fastest-selling game of the year, that is a position currently held by Resident Evil 2 and then Kingdom Hearts III.

Of course, as an online-focused game, it's likely Anthem performed well as a download release. The charts data does not currently factor in digital sales, making any meaningful analysis impossible.

Last week's big games all slipped down the charts. Ubisoft's Far Cry: New Dawn suffered the smallest drop in sales - down 43 per cent week-on-week - and the game falls to No.2.

Metro: Exodus also suffered a relatively small week-on-week decline (down 55 per cent) and the game tumbles to No.5.

Jump Force dropped the furthest, from No.4 to No.17 with a 64 per cent sales drop. This isn't especially unusual for a game with a very specific audience.

While Crackdown 3's sales are down 51 per cent and drops to No.26.

Some of the big games of Christmas, however, saw a sales uptick. FIFA 19 enjoyed a 44 per cent sales improvement partially due to some small price promotion, and the game rose to No.3. Forza Horizon 4 also benefitted from some price activity, and the game rose 82 per cent in sales, taking the game from No.15 to No.6.

There were no other new releases in the charts. After a barrage of new games these last two weeks, the number of major new titles begins to slow for a few weeks. March is full of new titles, but nothing particularly AAA, with the notable exception of Ubisoft's The Division 2.

Sekiro Defeats Division 2


25/Mar/2019

Activision Blizzard’s ‘Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice’ cuts ‘Tom Clancy’s The Division 2’ down to No2.

It was a close run thing, but developer From Software now has its second All Formats No1 (‘Dark Souls III reached No1 back in week 15 2016). ‘FIFA 19’ jumps one place from No4 to No3, while ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ and ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ fall to Nos 4 and 5 respectively.

NPD (US) February Sales Data

 

 

Consumer in the United States spent $1.05 billion on gaming-related products in February, according to 

industry-tracking firm The NPD Group. That’s up 4 percent compared to $1.01 billion in February 2018.

The uptick in sales is due primarily to big game launches like Anthem and Jump Force. But the industry also saw growth in accessories and game cards as people rush out to purchase new gamepads. That was enough to patch over the hardware space, which is beginning to retract after years of growth.
 

“Gains in software, accessories, and game card spending offset declines in hardware,” said Piscatella. “Year-to-date spending across tracked video game hardware, software, accessories, and game cards has increased 3 percent when compared to 2018, to $2 billion.”

Here are the results for February 2019

February 2019 Dollar Sales   Feb’18 Feb’19 Change
         
Total Video Game Sales   $1.007 billion $1.047 billion 4%
Video Games Hardware   $316m $277m -12%
PC & Video Games Software (PC, Console and Portable; Physical and Full Game Digital Formats from the STEAM, PlayStation and Xbox platforms)   $397m $457m 15%
Video Games Accessories & Game Cards   $294m $313m 6%

Software

The best-selling games of January 2018 in the U.S.

NPD tracks physical sales at retailers, but it also gets digital data directly from publishers. But not every company participates. For example, Nintendo doesn’t share its first-party sales, and Activision Blizzard does not provide its Battle.net sales.

These charts are sorted by dollar sales — not number of units sold.

  1. Anthem**
  2. Jump Force
  3. Kingdom Hearts III
  4. Far Cry New Dawn
  5. Red Dead Redemption II
  6. Resident Evil 2 2019
  7. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate*
  8. Metro: Exodus**
  9. NBA 2K19
  10. Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII**
  11. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe*
  12. Mario Kart 8*
  13. Grand Theft Auto V
  14. Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey
  15. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild*
  16. Minecraft ***
  17. Super Mario Party*
  18. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege
  19. Madden NFL 19**
  20. Marvel’s Spider-Man

*Digital sales not included
**PC digital sales not included
**Xbox One and PlayStation 4 digital sales not included for Minecraft


Software sales were up in February compared to the same period in 2018.

“Dollar sales of tracked console, portable, and PC video game software totaled $457 million in February 2019, growing 15 percent when compared to a year ago,” said Piscatella.

 
That’s impressive in part because of the blockbuster launch of Monster Hunter: World last February. But Anthem and Jump Force both had strong debuts and other games continue to sell well.

“Year-to-date dollar sales of tracked console, portable, and PC video game software reached $896 million,” said Piscatella. “That’s 10 percent higher when compared to a year ago.”

Anthem

“Anthem was the best-selling game of February 2019, and it is now the second best-selling game of 2019,” said Piscatella. “Anthem represents the second-highest launch month sales ever recorded for a BioWare developed game, trailing only the March 2012 release of Mass Effect 3.”

 
And that doesn’t even include Anthem’s PC digital sales. More importantly, it doesn’t count the people who signed up for EA’s Access Origin Premier service for $15 per month. That figure is likely significant since that membership now gets players access to a library of older games as well as Battlefield V and Madden NFL 19.

Jump Force

“Jump Force debuted as February’s second best-selling game,” said Piscatella. “Launch month sales volume of Jump Force is the third-highest total ever achieved for a title published by Bandai Namco Games. Jump Force is currently the fourth best-selling game of 2019 year-to-date.”

Never overestimate the tastes of anime fans.

Kingdom Hearts 3

“Kingdom Hearts III ranked as the third best-selling game of February, and maintains its number one selling position year to date,” said Piscatella.”Over its first two months in market, Kingdom Hearts III remains the fastest selling game in franchise history, exceeding the time-aligned sales of Kingdom Hearts II by over 80 percent.”

Metro Exodus

“Metro Exodus was the eighth best-selling game of February,” said Piscatella. “Launch-month sales of Metro Exodus set a new franchise record, besting the month-one sales of Metro: Last Light by nearly 50 percent.”

Hardware and accessories

The Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console of the month. It also generated the most hardware dollars for Nintendo since February 2011. You can read more about the hardware results right here.

 
For accessories and game cards, sales are climbing once again. This segment generated $313 million, which is up 6 percent year-over-year.

“Gamepad spending gains were the primary driver of the increase,” said Piscatella. “Nintendo gamepad sales increased nearly 80 percent in the month of February, and are now up approximately 90 percent year to date.”

“Year-to-date spending on accessories and game cards has increased 8 percent when compared to a year ago, to $580 million,” said Piscatella. “As with February, gamepads are the primary contributor to spending gains.

UK Chart Roundup 13th April 2019

 

UK Chart, week ending April 13th 2019

 

 

Quote

 

The Division 2 is top of the UK physical sales chart for the second week running. Ubisoft's game was the best-selling physical title in the UK for the week ending April 13.

Immediately below the looter-shooter lies FIFA 19, which remains at No.2, according to sales monitor Chart-Track. That's followed by Red Dead Redemption 2, which is up three places to No.3.

 

It's been a relatively quiet week for new releases, with only one new game in the chart. That game is Dangerous Driving, which enters at No.34. The two new Nintendo Labo Toy-Con kits miss out on the top 40 altogether.

 

You can read the full top 10 sales chart for this week below, courtesy of UKIE and GfK Chart-Track. Note this table does not include digital sales data, and so should not be considered representative of all UK game sales.

UK Chart Roundup 27th April 2019

 

UK Chart, week ending April 27th, 2019

 

Quote

 

Sony's Days Gone comfortably beat Mortal Kombat 11 in the UK boxed games charts.

 

Its launch week physical sales are 27% lower than last year's PS4 exclusive action adventure God of War. It is actually a decent performance when you consider this is a new IP - and the review scores for this new game have not been as impressive as last year's multi-award winning effort. 

 

Mortal Kombat 11 had to settle for No.2 as a result. The game's debut performance is 43.6% smaller than 2015's Mortal Kombat X (note: digital sales are not included, and download sales have improved significantly over the last four years). However, sales are slightly up over 2017's Injustice 2, which is another beat 'em up developed by NetherRealm featuring DC characters. 

 

Mortal Kombat 11 sold best on PS4, with 71% of sales coming on Sony's platform.
