The PS5 is “the best-selling hardware platform” in US dollar sales so far in 2022, beating both the Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch consoles, according to the latest figures from NPD Group. While the Switch is still leading this year in terms of units sold, the PS5 managed to lead in both unit and dollar sales for November 2022. NPD says that this is due to the significantly improved stock for the PS5, especially when compared to last year’s supply.
God of War Ragnarok and Galactic Purple PS5 Dualsense also top November 2022 charts
While the money machine that is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 still leads in US dollar sales for November 2022, God of War Ragnarok has solidly entered this month’s NPD Top 10 chart in second place:
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
- God of War: Ragnarok
- Pokemon Scarlet/Violet
- Sonic Frontiers
- Madden NFL 23
- FIFA 23
- NBA 2K23
- Gotham Knights
- Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
- Mario Party Superstars
This mimics the UK chart for November 2022 as well, which also had Modern Warfare 2 narrowly beating Ragnarok by a single place. So far this year, US customers have spent a whopping $49 billion on video game content, hardware, and accessories.
NPD also notes that accessories spending increased by 10% in November compared a year ago, likely because players have already got the consoles now. Interestingly, the Galactic Purple version of the PS5 Dualsense was the best-selling accessory in dollars sales for the month.
