The NPD Group has revealed the hardware and software sales data in the United States for the month of August, and where the latter is concerned, Madden NFL 23 is, unsurprisingly, on top of the charts. As per NPD analyst Mat Piscatella, it has instantly become the fifth best-selling game of the year. This is the 23rd consecutive year that a Madden game has been the best-selling game in the United States in its launch month.

In second place is fellow new release Saints Row, in spite of its less-than-stellar critical reception. Another new release, Soul Hackers 2, has debuted in 15th place. MultiVersus and Xenoblade Chronicles 3, which debuted at No. 1 and No. 4 the previous month, have dropped down to No. 5 and No. 10 respectively.

Meanwhile, Marvel’s Spider-Man has seen a massive jump in sales thanks to the launch of its PC version, going from 84th place in July’s charts to third place in August. It’s the best-selling game on Steam in the United States for the month. Fellow PlayStation title Horizon Forbidden West slots in at No. 12, partially thanks to price promotion, and is the fourth best-selling game of the year so far.

On the hardware front, the PS5 is the best-selling platform for the month of August in terms of both units sold and revenue generated from sales. Year-to-date, the Nintendo Switch is the highest-selling console of 2022 so far in terms of units sold, while the PS5 leads where dollar sales are concerned.
