NPD Sales Numbers Show Destiny 2 Took September 2017’s Top Spot – IGN
SNES Classic was the top hardware.
According to analysts at The NPD Group, September’s best selling game was Destiny 2, followed by NBA2K18.
In only one month of sales, Destiny 2 is now the “best-selling game of 2017 year to date.” NBA 2K18 is the best-selling sports game.
Interestingly, the top selling hardware unit for September wasn’t the Nintendo Switch, but rather the Super NES Classic.
Switch was the top selling console for September 2017, beating out PS4 and Xbox One, but Sony led the pack in overall consumer spending tied to the PS4 platform.
Nintendo issued a statement last week ahead of the public release of NPD’s sales data championing its hybrid console. Two-thirds of all hardware sales in September belonged to Nintendo.
Last month’s top-selling game, Madden NFL 18, moved down two places to number 3
Here are the top 10 best selling games in the US for September according to the NPD Group:
