The NPD Group recently released a report analyzing the best-selling consoles and games in the United States in January. In this analysis, it was revealed that Pokemon Legends: Arceus and the PS5 were the United States’ top-selling video game and console, respectively.
Despite a launch date of January 28th, Pokemon Legends: Arceus was the United States’ best-selling video game last month. What’s even more shocking is that The NPD Group’s analysis period ran from January 1st to January 29th, so this data only accounted for one to two days of sales at most. Call of Duty: Vanguard was the second-best-selling game in the U.S. followed by Monster Hunter: Rise.
There was a shocking revelation when it came to hardware since the PlayStation 5 overtook the Nintendo Switch in units sold and dollars generated to become the top-selling video game console in the United States last month. Xbox devices reportedly placed second on the list.
The report also showed that spending on mobile games fell by 6.8% year-over-year. Despite this drop, NPD said that this “cooldown” does not indicate the mobile gaming market is becoming weaker.
