The results of the month of September in the United States have fallen and accompanied by a major procession of novelties as well as a small event in the field of sales of consoles, since Sony Interactive Entertainment has succeeded for the first time to distribute Enough of PlayStation 5 to interrupt the RECORD series of the switch.
Say 33. As the number of consecutive months during which Nintendo will be at the top of the console sales in the United States with its switch. Imagine, you have to go back to November 2018, who had crowned the PS4, to find the Switch elsewh in the head of the United States. One month before the release of the SWITCH OLED, Nintendo bends finally facing PlayStation 5, which Sony Interactive Entertainment has distributed massively last month to finish its fiscal quarter. If the PS5 had already managed to pass in front of the turnkey switch, there is this time no ambiguity: the PS5 is the best-sold console in volume and in value for the month of September.
On the current year, the switch continues to conduct the dance by volume (the number of console sold) while the PS5 is in mind in value (the turnover generated by the sales of the consoles). In total, console sales remain a major growth lever and account for $ 3.4 billion since the beginning of the year, an annual increase of 49%, despite the still insufficient availability of new generation machines.
The outings were numerous in September, but nothing sufficiently popular to dislodge Madden NFL 22 of his pedestal. A statement to strongly, however, since digital sales of NBA 2K22 (and all other Take-Two Interactive games) are not counted on the contrary of those of the Electronic Arts games. We are not mistaken, if a vulgar game of soccer as FIFA 22 ADVANTY The basketball simulation in this American ranking, it is because the comparison is in fact not valid.
We will leave anything the three sports games to be transpired on to turn to the beautiful Peformance of the month, which is signed Tales of Arise . With its simultaneous global output on PlayStation, Xbox and PC that has already earned it over the world, the latest RPG of Bandai Namco also produces the best launch of the franchise history in the United States. The Japanese RPG strikes even stronger than Diablo II: Resurreed , even if the Blizzard game is actually present twice with the compilation Diablo Prime Evil Collection . Good welcome also for Life is Strange: New Colors that performs the best start of the franchise.
Another important exit of the month, Deathloop will not change the habits of Arkane Studios, accustomed to critical successes without necessarily translating through microbolant commercial results. That said, with his 6th place on only two platforms, the game of Bethesda does not complain about to others and in particular Lost Judgment , the big absent of the month. For the rest, we can note the solid performance of GHOST OF TSUSHIMA and its director s Cut that offers a second month of presence, when Death Stranding Director s Cut would have liked to have at least one .
Although only 15th in the ranking, Warioware: Get It Together achieved the best launch of the franchise, exceeding Warioware Smooth Moves from January 2007. This is the minimum that we could expect the Share of the switch, however, however, unusually represented this month with only 4 Nintendo games in the Top 20. Keeping in mind that the small craftsman is underrepresented for lack of sharing his digital sales, like Take-Two Interactive.
Where is KENA?
Unlike Lost Judgment , the absence of the beautiful surprise that is Kena: Bridge of Spirits is logical since the game is published by Ember Lab which did not transmit its sales to the NDP. Note that the action-adventure game seems to have been very well received and is on the bestseller podium PS5 of PlayStation Store in September (1st in Europe, 3rd in North America). For box enthusiasts, appointment is made on November 19th.
At the accessory radius, the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller is the one that generated the most money in September, while the Dualsense handle remains the most sold accessory since the beginning of the year. Mobile side, Sensor Tower estimates reveal that Candy Crush Saga , GENSHIN IMPACT , ROBLOX , Corner Master , Garena Free Fire , Pokémon GO Homescapes , Clash of Clans , Bingo Blitz and Candy Crush Soda Saga are the titles that generated the most money in the United States in September, With a special mention for the Mihoyo game that celebrated its first anniversary with expenses up 120% compared to the previous month.
September 2021 in the United States
Including downloads, this ranking is calculated based on turnover and not the number of copies sold. As a reminder, Take-Two and Nintendo games are penalized by the fact that these publishers do not share their sales for download with the NDP. Attention, if Bethesda is also in this case in normal time, the Deathloop ranking is aware of the digital. Finally, the downloads on subscriptions like the Xbox Game Pass are obviously not sales.
