Death Stranding PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Death Stranding did incredibly well for itself in the November 2019 NPD results for USA, charting in seventh position. The title could only be outpaced by juggernauts, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, various permutations of Pokémon Sword & Shield, and Madden NFL 19. According to analyst Mat Piscatella, the Hideo Kojima directed release ranks among the top ten “launch month full game dollar sales for a Sony published title in history”.

Overall, consumers spent $2.251 billion on gaming-related products in November, which is down 19 per cent year-over-year. Declining sales of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One can be attributed to the drop, as well as the lack of a Red Dead Redemption 2-esque software smash hit. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s doing a decent job picking up the slack, though, and is now not only the best-selling game of 2019 in America – but also the biggest release of the past 12 months.

As you’d expect, Nintendo Switch once again led the hardware charts – it’ll be the best-selling console in the US for 2019 without any doubt. We’ve included the relevant software rankings below.
