What do you want to know

  • The NPD Group has shared details of the June 2022 results.
  • According to the report, Elden Ring was the best-selling game of the month.
  • Elden Ring is now one of the top 10 best-selling games in the United States of all time, by dollar sales.
  • The PS5 was the best-selling console of the month in dollars, while the Nintendo Switch was higher in units sold.

The latest report from the NPD Group is here, sharing information on the top selling games and hardware in the US for the month of June 2022.

NDP Executive Director Mat Piscatella explained on Twitter (opens in a new tab) that the top-selling game of the month was again FromSoftware and Bandai Namco’s Elden Ring, which is now one of the top 10 best-selling games of all time in the United States by dollar sales, as far as games that were tracked by NPD. Elden Ring was also the top game in the May 2022 NPD results, continuing to hold its position even as other games launch.

We will also note in the best-selling games the fact that Overwatch has risen to reach number 5 on the charts. Supermassive Games and 2K Games’ horror title The Quarry only reached No. 19 on the charts, but as reiterated below, that doesn’t include digital copies sold.

For hardware, the PS5 was the top-selling console by dollars, while the Nintendo Switch was the top-selling console by units sold.

As always, it’s important to keep in mind that NPD tracks dollar sales, not units, while Nintendo and Take-Two Interactive do not provide digital sales data.
