Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart was the best selling game
June was a big month for console sales in the USA, during which consumers spent more than $401 million on new consoles, an 112% increase from last year.
After E3 2021, the demand for Xbox Series consoles increased in the US and these Microsoft consoles made the most money during June, despite the Nintendo Switch selling more units. However, in the second best month of June ever for game console sales in the US, Xbox had its best June ever in that country.
If you like to count the money generated, the Xbox Series was a bestseller, and if you prefer to count units, the Switch is at the top, but one thing’s for sure is how 2021 scores much better than 2020.
The Nintendo Switch remains the best-selling console in the first half of 2021 in the US, in cash and units sold, while the PS5 continues to set its own records, even with inventory issues, as the Xbox series does.
According to NPD, the PS5 is the console that sold the most units in its first eight months of life in the United States.
On the list of best-selling games, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart comes in at number one, being the best debut of the month, ahead of Mario Golf: Super Rush and Scarlet Nexus, who debuted at third and fifth, respectively.
