USA Sales Charts March 2024

March was a good month for new games, as a number of fresh releases walked straight into the USA software charts. As per Circana (formerly NPD) analyst Mat Piscatella, it was Dragon's Dogma 2 that caught fire in March, claiming the crown as the month's best-selling title. The action RPG sequel is also the third best-selling game of the year, which is quite impressive.

Fellow newcomers Rise of the Ronin and Unicorn Overlord did decently as well, ending up in fifth and eighth respectively. Annual baseball hit MLB: The Show 24 rocked up in third, and WWE 2K24 took the ninth spot — although the latter's digital sales aren't included. As such, it's fair to assume that the latest wrestling sim sold especially well.

But the real winner here has to be Helldivers 2. Despite releasing in early February, the bug-blasting shooter managed to stick around in second place throughout March — which is massive, considering the aforementioned competition. The Sony-published title remains the best-selling game of 2024 so far.

Meanwhile, on the hardware side of things, the PS5 was once again the market leader, both in terms of unit and dollar sales. However, overall spending is down for the quarter, compared to last year.
