The history of video game sales has remained the same in recent months: Dollar sales are down. It’s mainly because we’re approaching the release of a new generation of gaming devices, but also because we’ve missed out on some big AAA releases this year, as we saw with God of War and Spider-Man last year. September 2019 saw several major releases, including games like Borderlands 3, NBA 2K20, and Zelda: Link’s Awakening, FIFA 20 and Gears 5. They all made the top ten. Here’s the official top 20 best-selling games in September 2019 based on dollar sales. Keep in mind that Nintendo’s opening games do not include digital sales, so they can score even higher.

  1. NBA 2K20
  2. Borderland 3
  3. FIFA 20
  4. The legend of Zelda: The awakening of the band
  5. Madden NFL 20
  6. Tom Clancy’s phantom intelligence: Stop

Some notes from ResetEra and the NDP:

Unlike August, September saw the release of some important software. Take-Two has released the aforementioned NBA 2K20 and Borderlands 3. But September also saw the launch of FIFA 20, Legends of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Gears 5, Code Vein, and NHL 20. Even Tom Clancy’s phantom intelligence: The one in four. The breakpoint launched in October falls within September’s PDP continuation window of up to 5. The October races.

But even with all these games, software sales were still low.

Sales of tracked video game software fell 4% in September from the previous year to $732 million, Piscatella said. Increased Switch and Xbox One sales have failed to offset the PlayStation 4 decline caused by the release of the comparable Marvel Spider-Man in September 2018.

Compared to last year, software sales are still about the same in 2019. But the money went to Nintendo, not Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Annual sales of tracked video game software are $3.9 billion, Piscatella said. The increase in Nintendo Switch software sales was offset by lower sales on all other platforms.

NBA 2K20
2K NBA 2K20 games started in September and have already reached sales highs.

NBA 2K20 will make its debut in September 2019 and immediately become a best-seller for 2019, Piscatella said. NBA 2K20’s first month sales were the highest in history for a sports game and surpassed the previous record holder, NBA 2K19.

Borderlands 3
Gearbox Software Borderlands 3 also made an impressive debut.

Borderlands 3 set a new sales record for the franchise and was the second best-selling game in September, Piscatella said. Borderlands 3 is in third place in sales this year.

Gears 5
The debut of Gears 5 at number 7 may be disappointing at first glance, but it’s important to remember that it’s part of Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass subscription program. Anyone can get a game as part of this membership for just $10 a month – and Microsoft has launched a series of promotions that cost much less.
