The NPD Group’s sales data for October 2020 is out and consumer spending for video games – which includes hardware, software and accessories – hit $3.8 billion. Year-to-date spending also hit $37.5 billion, which is 20 percent higher than the previous year, and that’s expected to increase with the release of Xbox Series X/S and PS5. In the meantime, the previous gen had some strong sellers with FIFA 21 being the best-selling title for the month.

Along with topping both Xbox and PlayStation charts, this is the first time that a FIFA title actually topped the overall sales charts in the US. Madden NFL 21 was in second, which should come as no surprise given the series’ success in the market. Then there’s Watch Dogs: Legion whose sales were tracked for only three days in the month and still managed to rank as the third best-selling title.

NHL 21 also had a pretty good month, ranking fourth the overall software sales charts. Its launch month dollar sales were also the highest for any title in the franchise NHL 16 released in September 2015. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit also did pretty good, despite not being a traditional Mario Kart title. It topped sales charts for Nintendo platforms and ranked fifth in sales overall.
