Madden NFL 22 Tops US Sales in August

Madden NFL 22, published by EA Sports, and the Nintendo Switch were the top US sellers in their respective categories in August based on the NPD August ’21 sales report. The PlayStation 5 lead in actual dollar sales.

The August 2021 NPD report was recently released, reporting total industry spend up seven percent year-over-year. August hit a record $4.4 billion in sales. The spending year-to-date by consumers is $37.9 billion.

According to Bloomberg, hardware sales were up 45 percent year-over-year, reaching $329 million, the highest total since 2008. 2021’s spending to date increased by 49 percent to $3 billion compared to last year.

Madden NFL 22  is currently the fourth best-selling game of the year. This year’s game featured a number of changes to the gameplay and franchise mode, especially on next-gen consoles. It has received mixed reviews critically and commercially, but that hasn’t stopped people from spending their money on the annual title.

The PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controller White is the best-selling accessory in 2021 and the Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller was the top seller in August.
