July 2019 NPD Shows Strong Switch Hardware & Software Sales –

Video game sales for July 2019 come from the NPD Group, with Nintendo as the big winner. They had the top sales points of the month (and the year) and dominated the top ten sales. In fact, it is even more impressive because, unlike almost every other game in the rankings, games released by Nintendo do not have digital sales that continue to grow month after month.

The emblem of the fire: Three Homes ranks second behind Madden NFL 20, a series that has made its debut in the top of the rankings since 1998. This is the best debut in the history of the Fire Emblem franchise and already the second best-selling game in the series with the almost certainty that it will soon be dethroned by Fire Emblem Awakening. In fact, Three Homes tripled sales of Shadows of Valencia, which held the previous record for the best month of launch. Of course, the $60 price helps (3DS games cost $40 each), but it still means tremendous growth for a franchise that is now undoubtedly a success at Switch.

For the sector as a whole, July 2019 was not an exceptional month. Total gambling revenues were $762 million compared to $759 million last year, virtually unchanged. Equipment has fallen by 22%, from $217 million a year ago to just $169 million. Software increased 34% from 253 million dollars to 340 million dollars. Accessories and playing cards fell 12 percent, from $289 million to $254 million.

Although the Switch was the best selling console of the month, it seems that many consumers are waiting for the next big event. Things like the Switch Lite and the updated Switch hardware with improved battery life may have prompted some players to put their purchases on hold in July. In addition, both Sony and Microsoft have announced plans for new systems in 2020 after E3, so some of these late adopters may not be able to take advantage of the new devices. The absence of a price reduction on the PS4 and Xbox One consoles, which would certainly have boosted sales of gooth hardware, did not help either.

NPD monitors physical retail sales, but also obtains the digital data directly from the publishers. But not all companies participate. For example, Nintendo does not share its revenue with the first party and Activision Blizzard does not provide its revenue to Battle.net.
