NPD Group launched its traditional monthly sales report, where we learned that Madden NFL 18 was the best-selling game in the United States during August 2017.
This is no surprise, as Madden and American football are very popular among users in the United States. What is surprising (although it is time to get used to it) is that Grand Theft Auto V is unstoppable, since in August returned to be placed 2nd in the list of best sellers, a great achievement if we take in account that the title of Rockstar debuted 4 years ago.
Later we have Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, exclusive title of PlayStation 4 that debuted in August. Continues Splatoon 2 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in 4th and 5th place respectively. Check the list below.
Madden NFL 18
Grand Theft Auto V
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Rainbow Six Siege
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered
Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy
He also mentioned that GTA V has belonged to the top 10 of best-selling games during 41 of the 49 months that has been available for sale, 16 times more than any other title that has registered NPD. "GTA V is the best-selling title of all time for both revenue and sales units registered on PC, console and laptop, with digital and combined packages."
Ucharted: The Lost Legacy also performed well, as the title only debuted on PlayStation 4 and NPD only accounted for independent software sales, leaving aside downloads that were part of Uncharted 4's special editions.
To make matters worse, NPD said the racing category has seen an increase, while shooters are declining. "Consumer sales of games in the racing genre have grown more than 80% in 2017 to date, driven mainly by the launches of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Nintendo Switch and Forza Horizon 3 on Xbox One."
Regarding general game sales in the United States, console and PC software generated $ 282 MDD during August 2017. This is 3% less than the same month last year. So far this year, US game sales have fetched $ 2.9 MMDD, down 1% from 2016.
Finally, we commented that Nintendo is still on a good run, because Switch was the best selling console during August 2017 in the United States. Are you excited to know the big update currently?
