We already know the sales data in the United States for the month of July. The NPD analyst Mat Piscatella, like every month, has shared the software figures in the North American territory. And The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD , one of the most powerful releases of recent weeks, has not failed to reach the top.
It is the third month of July that more money has been generated in video games in the US
The truth is that in the weeks before the game’s launch there was a lot of criticism due to the lack of news that the remastering of the game originally launched on Wii brought. But, even with that, he has made his debut directly reaching the top. COD: Black Ops Cold War and Monster Hunter Stories 2 round out the top three; the latter is also a premiere for the month of July.
On the side of “disappointments” could enter the data of NEO The World Ends With You , which remains in position 16 and has not triumphed in other territories either.
PlayStation 5 has led the hardware market in sales in dollar profit during the month of July, while Nintendo Switch, again, has prevailed in unit sales. A trend that has been maintained in recent months, although if we do an annual review, Nintendo Switch is the current best-selling hardware to date , both in units and in dollars.
To finish with more figures, the sales in dollars of video game hardware in July have grown 98% compared to July 2020 , with a total of 323 million dollars. This is the highest total achieved in a July month since 2008, where $ 447 million was generated, and the third-highest July total in history.
