August was quite an interesting month for the video game industry. Although the big releases for the rest of the year are planned for October and November, in recent weeks we had the opportunity to see the arrival of Marvel’s Spider-Man to PC, as well as the annual game of the NFL, which has already become one of the most successful titles of the year.
According to The NPD Group, an organization that is responsible for sharing information about hardware and software sales in the United States, Madden NFL 23 debuted at the top of this market. As if that were not enough, this installment is in fifth place in the best-selling games of 2022 in the United States.
This is the 23rd year in a row that a new installment of Madden NFL has debuted at number one in the United States. Secondly, Saint’s Row, despite receiving a mixed reception, came in second place. The most interesting thing is that Marvel’s Spider-Man It went from being in the 84th position in July 2022, to being in the third position in sales in August.
