August US Charts: Madden NFL 23 Returns, PS5 and Xbox Series Sales Continue to Rise

  • Also read | Results of the previous month

And as usual, we start this round of results for August with gear sales, which increased by 14% year-over-year in the same period to $375 million. An increase that is, of course, due to the improved production capacity of the latest generation of consoles from Sony and Microsoft. However, it should be noted that since the beginning of the year, equipment spending has slightly decreased by 4% and amounted to a total of $2.9 billion.

And it is the PS5 that, like last month, holds the upper hand both in terms of cost and the number of units sold. The Nintendo Switch remains the best-selling console in 2022, but the PS5 maintains its top spot in terms of revenue. Finally, Sony’s latest products, like those from Microsoft, recorded double-digit percentage growth in sales compared to last year.

In terms of game sales, the release of Madden NFL 23 in the heart of August was clearly a success, as the Electronic Arts title took first place in the ratings and simultaneously became the fifth best-selling game of the year. The performance that the license achieves for the 23rd year in a row. And it’s another newcomer in second place, Saints Row, taking advantage of a relatively quiet August in terms of releases to make its mark. The rankings were also turned on their head with the strong return of Marvel’s Spider-Man, who catapulted from #84 to #2 thanks to its PC release. It is also the top selling game on Steam this month. Horizon Forbidden West also had a good bounce, jumping from 28th to 12th in the rankings thanks to a lower selling price during the month.

All of these moves push Elden Ring to No. 4, which six months after its release is still a great number, especially since the From Software-signed title remains this year’s top-selling title. The MultiVersus phenomenon, which rose to the first step of the podium last month thanks to Founder’s Pack sales, ran out of steam this month and dropped to 5th place. The same goes for Xenoblade Chronicles 3, which lost six positions and dropped to tenth position. Nintendo also retains only five of its exclusives in this ranking, up from seven last month.

Finally, for accessories, the US market recorded a further 18% year-over-year drop in revenue from 15% last month to $138 million. A decline that the NPD Institute attributes to lower consumer spending on headsets and controllers. Since the beginning of the year, revenue in this accessory segment has fallen 14% year-over-year to a total of $1.4 billion.

August 2022 US Ranking

Including downloads, this value rating is calculated based on revenue, not number of copies sold. As a reminder, Nintendo and Take-Two Interactive games are penalized by the fact that these publishers do not share their sales data with NPD. Finally, downloads from subscriptions like PlayStation Plus and Xbox Game Pass obviously don’t count as sales, just as free games aren’t affected by this rating.
