Good results

Xbox One sales are 202,000 for the month (estimated)

PlayStation 4 sold higher and remains the cumulative sales leader.

Good to see Until Dawn doing well with just 4 days of tracking and more so Gears of War Ultimate Edition.

Splatoon now has over 600,000 LTD sales and Amiibo sell through is over 7 million.

"Next month will be interesting".

Wonder if Until Dawn charts in September. That game had absolutely no buzz until it was actually released (and got covered by folks like pewdiepie) so I could see it having some mini legs.

Solid month. Until Dawn with a nice showing. Although, COD BLOPS Double Pack makes me think that sales were not as strong as might be initially perceived.

Happy to see Until Dawn do well, despite the lack of marketing. Great game, well deserved.

EDIT : Just noticed that Call of Duty Black Ops Combo Pack. So odd to see that up there. When's the last time 2 Call of Duty games charted in the same month?

Wow, Gears did amazing for the short time, and that doesnt count the bundled copies right?

Glad Until Dawn charted as well, I think the game sold a great amount of copies in september, because of Yutube/Twitch success

Recently started Until Dawn and loving it so far. Happy to see such a "niche" game charting, I definitely want more of these kinds of games (Until Dawn, Life is Strange, ...)
