September 2019 NPD PS4 PlayStation 4 1

2K Games’ double-billing of NBA 2K20 and Borderlands 3 jumped to the top of the USA sales charts for September, as industry spend continued to sink year-over-year due to dwindling hardware numbers. Total industry spend topped out at $1.278 billion – down eight per cent compared to the same month last year. FIFA 20 secured third, with Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint shooting up fifth position.

Perhaps the largest surprise, however, is Code Vein, which finished just one place behind the heavily marketed Gears 5 in eighth place. No, we’re not sure how that happened either. As has been the case for a while now, the Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console, but that’s to be expected with the PlayStation 4 entering its twilight years. We’ve included all of the relevant charts below.
