Everyone is waiting for PS5 and Xbox Scarlett? September is another disappointment in the USA. Clearly worse results

PS5 and Xbox Scarlett?

It is time to check what results were recorded on the second-largest industrial market in the world (just behind China), i.e. in the USA. NPD has already published its data.

Analysts from NPD, who have been following US market results for several years, have again published their latest rankings. This time, of course, they refer to September.

It turns out that the negative trend on the American market is continuing for several months – in total,  players spent 8% less in the US year-on-year. In particular, the American industry went weak with hardware sales – here a decrease of 22% year-on-year was recorded. This is a trend that has continued for many months in the United States. It seems that the majority of customers are postponing purchases until the end of next year, probably waiting for the next-gen platforms, i.e. on PS5 and Xbox Scarlett. 

The best-selling September console in the US was Switch. Nintendo confirmed the sale of over 15 million of its consoles in North America alone.

In the games category, the NBA 2K20 publisher, which has already become an absolute bestseller of 2019, can speak about huge success. This is the biggest premiere in the history of sports games! Borderlands 3 also performed well, which in September even beat such tunes as FIFA 20 and Madden NFL 20.
