NPD’s monthly report gave the best selling console title for August to Xbox One. According to a source, NBA 2K17, Madden 17, and FIFA 17 were the top three selling games in USA in September. NBA 2K17 has sold 18% more than last year, which translates in to 1306k copies sold at retail this year, making it the biggest launch ever for a sports game.
Madden 17, on the other hand, sold 727k copies without bundles and 788k copies with bundles. FIFA 17 sold 444k copies, which is less than last year’s version which sold 633k copies.
Forza Horizon 3, an open world racing video game developed by Playground Games, sold approximately 150k copies. This is not an impressive number as it was only on sale for 5 days (a few more if you count the Ultimate Edition). ReCore, the other Microsoft first party game apparently sold less than 50k copies at retail.
Thanks to the PS4 Slim Bundles, Uncharted 4 sold 100k copies in the US last month and Grand Theft Auto V sold 152k copies, which is 15% more compared to last year. Lastly, it was observed that No Man’s Sky sold around 50k copies in September which is down from over 500k copies in August.
