Ghost of Tsushima became the best-selling game in the USA in July


Analyst firm NPD Group has published a report on video game sales for July 2020 in the United States of America. From it it became known that Ghost of Tsushima is the best selling game of the month and the fastest selling game from Sucker Punch Productions.

Analyst Mat Piscatella said total spending by US consumers on the video game category (which includes video games, consoles and accessories) in July was $ 3.6 billion, up 32% from the same month last year.

The second best-selling game in July was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The action RPG Paper Mario: The Origami King peaked at # 3 on the monthly chart, while The Last of Us Part II held at # 4. It is noteworthy that the story of Ellie is the third best-selling game in the history of Sony Interactive Entertainment, after Marvel’s Spider-Man and God of War.

Also in the top 20 was JRPG Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris, which debuted in tenth place – this is the best start in the series. But Take-Two Interactive projects – Grand Theft Auto V, Red Dead Redemption 2 and NBA 2K20 – were not included in the monthly chart, as digital sales remained unknown. The company confirmed to GamesIndustry that it did not provide July data to NPD Group, and it is not known if it will provide them in the future.

When it comes to consoles, the Nintendo Switch is once again ahead of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The Xbox Elite Series 2 controller is the best-selling accessory in the list of accessories.
