Overall Results:

February retail game sales are down 21% year over year.

Hardware was down 30% year over year.

Console and Handheld game sales were down 14% year over year.

Physical and Steam PC software sales (for AAA games) were down 26% year over year.



Software Results:



*** No Digital Sales
^ No Battle.net Sales

Notes:
- "Ubisoft's For Honor was the best-selling game of February 2017, despite having only 12 days in market during the month," observed Piscatella.


January Hardware:

PS4: #1

Notes:
- "Console hardware accounted for 82 percent of the total declines as both average retail pricing and units sold fell versus [a] year ago."
- "In the portable space, 3DS unit sales were up 77 percent versus January 2017 driven by the 3DS New Galaxy Style model and the 3DS Limited Pikachu Yellow model," Piscatella explained.

Updating this to the full sheets.

For anyone wondering, Horizon will be in the March results.

Surprised software sales were down so much in Feb. Seemed like that would have been in good shape given the number of quality releases.

Nioh in the top 10 with just retail numbers is very impressive. The top #8 all include digital numbers. I wonder how high Nioh would've placed if it included digital.

Nioh sold well digitally due to stock shortages, I imagine. Nice to see it crack the top-10 without digital sales.

If you assume people are shifting to digital, probably not.

For floor space at B&M stores, maybe.

Well, hardware pricing causing less revenue isn't too odd, but the hardware units going down suggests we're in the decline phase of the generation, and is less good. That's probably not too surprising though, given a generation is only likely to last ~6 years total and we're at year 3.

The software comp is against... it's not astonishing software, but it's only 14% down there, and arguably had bigger releases: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1196083

If you were hoping for an extended generation though, that's probably not likely.

GTAV is still an absolute beast, 3.5 years after its release on last gen, 2.5 years after current gen release and almost 2 years after PC release.

So 3DS should be around 136k if that 77% up yoy is by units and not by revenue (it did 72k units last year)

Edit. It's MoM instead YoY. Nevermind then (thanks for correcting Welfare)

Up 77% from January 2017, so MoM.

It seems like a game that should honestly be super niche though (I think that is the confusion part)

Seeing as how Digital isn't included with other games either (I fail to see how this matters too much)
