Let’s take a second look at the numbers for September World’s largest sports market. A period of five weeks is calculated from August 27 to October 1, 2022.

Apparently, the increase in hardware revenue in September was due to the higher supply of the PlayStation 5, which is not difficult to find available for sale in the US. This also takes into account that this market has not yet received the official price increase for the console used in many countries in Civilization.

The collection of accessories was stable compared to September 2021, but during that period there was a decline in purchases of gamer headphones as restrictions increased. The drop in software revenue would have been steeper had it not been for the growth in console subscriptions.

Due to the success of the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, hardware’s cumulative revenue was almost flat in the first nine months of 2021. The Nintendo Switch saw a slight decline in accumulated revenue, indicating the weight of age.

Here are the top-selling games for the days from August 27 to October 1, 2022, according to NPD Group:

Launched in August (16), traditional Madden NFL 23 Another EA Sports game ended up leading the collection, FIFA 23 (Date of publication September 27).shining in August, gringos fondly call it “football.” FIFA At EA their September is our month of real football, which is “football” to them. Anyway, probably NBA 2K23 performed slightly better than Madden NFL 23 If digital copies are counted in sales rankings.

By the way, Mama Laguna thinks it’s pretty impressive to see six new releases in the North American Top 10 for September, but Elton Ring Best seller of 2022 so far Madden NFL 23 This is the third in nine months. about this, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga He was the Vice President for nine months in 2022.

In terms of consoles, PlayStation 5 had the highest revenue and sales leadership of all current platforms. The Nintendo Switch took second place in September sales, while the Xbox Series X|S took second place in revenue.

Unfortunately, it’s unclear whether the PS5’s numerical advantage would have been over the Switch or the Xbox series in the US, as no reliable numbers have been released since March.
