Console Sales Report for Singapore – June Edition
The PlayStation 4 (both standard and Pro versions) continue to lead the sales chart for the month of June, going up with a 3% increase in sales compared to May. The Nintendo Switch scored a big jump in sales, closing in at 40% in June – just right behind the PlayStation 4.
The big sales boost for Nintendo seems to be in part, thanks to a big resurgent in the interest for Mario Kart 8 (which first launched in April), and the evergreen Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Both titles are still the top 2-selling games on Lazada’s site. I suspect some key third-party titles such as the fantastic-for-Switch Disgaea 5 Complete had a part to play too.
Lazada Singapore’s Top 5 Selling Games for June 2017:
- (NS) Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- (NS) Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
- (NS) Super Bomberman R
- (PS4) Final Fantasy XV
- (PS4) Tekken 7
On the PlayStation 4 front, Final Fantasy XV is back in the Top 5 chart – a large price drop (now going for less than S$50 from Lazada) helps, as well as the availability of new DLCs helped. Tekken 7 makes its debut on the chart too.
Microsoft can afford to cheer too, with the Xbox One console hitting double digit (it was 4% in May). The original Xbox One is now available for less than S$300 – making it an attractive purchase for some.
Important Notes: These information were provided by Lazada Singapore and there are a few things to note:
- Lazada Singapore do not release actual sales numbers. So we have to make do with a “%” of the sales performance of each major consoles, instead of actual sell-through numbers.
- Although the information is only coming from one local (albeit a major one) sales source, the data does follow the consoles’ sales trend in the market as observed by us.
