You wouldn't think that NBA 2K20 was the best-selling game of 2019 so far, but it is according to the latest North American sales data from the NPD Group.

The sales data shows that in September 2019 the best-selling game was NBA 2K20, which is also the best-selling game of the year so far. Joining the list of best-selling games in the United States for September 2019 is Borderlands 3 and FIFA 20 in second and third, respectively, while The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening and Madden NFL 20 take fourth and fifth place, respectively.

Another interesting thing to note are hardware sales, with the Nintendo Switch taking out the #1 position while Xbox One and PS4 sales are continuing to dwingle. Hardware sales are down 22% overall, a trend that is only going to continue as we move into 2020 with the next-gen Xbox Scarlett and PlayStation 5 consoles.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
