15-16 is a 3.4% drop, 16-17 is a 32.7% drop, 17-18 is a 11.2% drop and 18-19 comes in at a 16% drop. From 15-19 the drop totals a 51.4% drop.

That is a crazy drop. Would be awesome to have digital numbers here. Because I don't think they are high enough to balance it out.

Great research dude. Madden 19 had the best launch since 2013.

I also don't see them here. Just some random estimates for retail only sales.

NPD isn't posting exact numbers but releases valueable information. 19 had the best launch since 13 and that doesn't even include Origin(PC) sales.

Americans are doing their part to not buy EA games. I hope Europe does the same with FIFA.

Downward trend although I'm not sure how digital factors in. I guess the huge digitial discrepancy started with 17 but from there on I don't think that the ratio is that much highter for this game.
