Elden Ring To Become One of The Best-Selling Video Games in U.S History

My1sttoday Gaming — Elden Ring to become one of the best-selling video games in U.S history.

From Software‘s critically acclaimed action RPG was the best-selling game in June and has placed first in dollar sales in four of its first five months of availability, NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said on Friday.

NPD recently tipped Elden Ring to end 2022 as the best-selling title in the US market.

NPD Group has retracted the claim, citing incomplete data.

“This is based on an incomplete data set, so we need to retract the second sentence. It should read as follows:

“Elden Ring repeated as the best-selling game of the month, and it remains the best-selling game of 2022 year to date. Elden Ring has placed first in dollar sales in four of its first five months in market.

“We apologize for the reporting error.”

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was once again the second best-selling title of the month in the US in June.

The highest new entry on the monthly software chart sales was Mario Strikers: Battle League for Switch, which came in at No.3.

While the new entries included F1 22 at No.12, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes at No.16, Sonic Origins at No.17 and The Quarry at No.19.
