    Guess Battlefront 2 up high means the film worked. Bundles aren't included in the charting right?

    There are lists of best selling games of 2017 for all four platforms too.

    Battlefront 2 looks to have had a strong performance overall.

    Of the top 10, seven are service games, and the other three are from Nintendo.

    The king has return. :p

    7 Nintendo exclusives in TOP 20.
    11 Nintendo games in TOP 20, if we count multiplatforms.

    Huge month for Nintendo.

    Damn, PUBG cracked top 10. GTA V is #10, can’t knock it down! Crazy that it was the 6th best selling game of 2017.

    Nintendo had a very, very good December.

    Even Xenoblade Chronicles 2 made the top 20 relatively comfortably lol.

    Quite insane to think really what a turn around Nintendo did in 2017 really.

    Also glad to see all those Nintendo games do well too and get quite high on the list.

    Also GTA V still chartin high insane :P

    Whoa Xenoblade is in top 20. And freaking GTA V. Odyssey and Zelda at top 10 is great too.

    Oh wow Mario Kart 8 is in the top 10 best selling games of 2017? Nintendo has to be making the next Mario Kart for Switch.

    if Pokemon was combined, where would it chart? given how low both versions are, I guess the sales were really frontloaded

    The DS4 keeps leading accessory sales. I would think the XB1 controller is the most preferred.

    What were you expecting to win? It’s generally #1 every year, and this was the strongest since 2012.

    Nice to see Xenoblade Chronicles 2 place at 16 overall. I hope it’s close to selling a million world wide.

    Surprised by Xenoblade 2 at 16. Skyrim seems to have done well on Switch, despite the high asking price. Hopefully Dark Souls will perform even better on Switch!

    They buy the same shit every year. Not sure why they'd suddenly stop and change their buying habits lol. The whole top 10 for the year is pretty predictable and boring really.

    Well done Need For Speed Payback, best performing racing game of the month (outside of the beastly MK, of course).

    Surprised GT Sport didn't even place in PlayStation's own top 10...

    Pokemon is cheaper, they are 13/14th if the ranking was based on units. I'm guessing combined they'd be over >750K

    From the prediction thread, at minimum 3DS sold 1.25M units of software Pokemon US/UM likely makes more than 50% of those software sales, hence the question I asked Mat, he could probably confirm that it's over 50%:

    Go go Xenoblade. Took awhile, but it finally managed to chart on NPD. Switch doing great, and the industry as a whole looks very healthy.

    I think Steam's native DS4 support has now made it the choice for PC gamers. Considering the gyro function and being able to map things to different parts of the touchpad, it makes sense.

    It also beat Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon ranked at 19 and 20 respectively. Wonder where the Pokemon games would be in the list if combined though.

    shit, yea, I forgot. damn, I miss unit rankings. wish we got both, but I guess we only get one for narrative control (not that I blame them, they have good reason for shifting to revenue rankings)

    Wow, PS4/X1 are doing very very well for themselves in keeping up and exceeding with previous generations.
