September NPD: Switch Remains on Top; NBA 2K20 Best-Selling Game of 2019 so Far

The NPD Groups, Mat Piscatella, has released information detailing the best-selling video games of 2019, specifically the month of September. According to Piscatella, the Nintendo Switch was “once again the best-selling hardware platform of September and it remains the best-selling platform of 2019.”

Mat also mentioned that “hardware spending in September 2019 fell 22% vs YA, to $240 million. Year-to-date hardware spending has declined 21 percent versus a year ago, to $1.9 billion. Nintendo Switch is the only platform with sales gains both in September as well as year-to-date.

The NPD Group also released a list of the top 20 best-selling games for the month of October (Physical and Full Game Digital from the Nintendo eShop, PlayStation, Steam and Xbox platforms for publishers in the Digital Leader Panel) ranked on dollar sales:

  1. NBA 2K20
  2. Borderlands 3
  3. FIFA 20
  4. Link’s Awakening
  5. Madden NFL 20
  6. Ghost Recon: Breakpoint
  7. Gears 5
  8. Code Vein
  9. NHL 20
  10. Mario Kart 8
  11. Minecraft
  12. GTA V
  13. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
  14. Spyro Reignited Trilogy
  15. Red Dead Redemption II
  16. Rainbow Six Siege
  17. Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville
  18. Marvel’s Spider-Man
  19. Catherine
  20. Breath of the Wild

As you can see, NBA 2K20 leads the pack as not only the best-selling game of September but it’s also the best-selling game of 2019 year-to-date. The title’s “launch month sales were also the highest for any sports game in history, exceeding sales of the previous record holder, NBA 2K29.”

Borderlands 3 also performed very well for the month of September as Gearbox’s looter shooter has set a “new franchise launch month sales record” and is the third best-selling game of 2019 year-to-date, following right behind the second-place holder, Mortal Kombat 11.
