PS5 Breaks A New Record in The US

In the post-release phase of PS5, the console broke the record of the fastest-selling console in U.S. history in unit and dollar sales. We have a new record on our hands though, and this one was reported by Mat Piscatella from The NPD Group.

During Q1 2021, PS5 surpassed Nintendo Switch and became the best-selling hardware platform in both units and dollars. However, this did not stop Nintendo Switch, as it still ranks as the best-selling hardware platform in March 2021.

It’s about time we talk about games! Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War finally secures its top spot again, it also claims the title of the best-selling game for the first quarter and the 12-month period until March 2021.

The list of March 2021’s best-selling games is as follows:

  1. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
  2. Monster Hunter Rise
  3. Outriders
  4. Super Mario 3D World
  5. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  6. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  7. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
  8. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  9. Super Mario 3D All-Stars
  10. Minecraft
  11. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
  12. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
  13. Pokémon Sword & Shield
  14. Mortal Kombat 11
  15. Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time
  16. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild
  17. Madden NFL 21
  18. NBA 2K21
  19. Super Mario Party
  20. FIFA 21

It’s pretty surprising that even though stocks of next-gen consoles can’t be enough for the demand, March 2021 consumer spending for video game hardware, content, and accessories has increased by 18% since last year. Nintendo Switch is also keeping on having successful sale numbers even though we have rumors of “Switch Pro” going on.
