Charts America: Debut Madden NFL 18
The US market analysis firm NPD Group writes monthly a gigantic survey report on the American game industry. The company always gives a small, interesting summary for the general public.
The company came this time with a negative news, sales for August 2017 are 2% lower than a year ago. This is because sales of hardware sales decreased by 6% and game sales on consoles and handhelds fell by 2%. The physical and digital sales in the AAA segment on PC - for participating publishers - decreased by 23%. The fact that we do not see a bigger decline is due to the best selling hardware, the Switch, and the debut of Madden NFL 18, which knows a good debut every year. Below is the list of best-selling games sorted by revenue. For games marked with an asterisk, no digital sales were counted.
