    US NPD: PlayStation 5 is the Best Selling Console of January 2023

    PlayStation 5 leads the sales charge.

    US NPD results for the month of January 2023 reveal PlayStation 5 is the best selling console of the month in dollar and unit sales.

    Strong hardware performance during the month was driven by a significant increase in PlayStation 5 supply in recent months. PlayStation 5 accessory sales are also high with the PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controller (Midnight Black) being the best selling accessory of January 2023. 

    “Video game hardware spending was flat compared to a year ago, at $393 million,” NPD Group’s Mat Piscatella said. “Growth in PlayStation 5 and Switch hardware spending was offset by declines across other platforms. PlayStation 5 was the best-selling platform of January 2023 in both unit and dollar sales, with Switch ranking 2nd across both measures.”

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II was the best selling game of the month once more, continuing its momentum from this past October. In fact, the game led sales for the fourth consecutive month. The new Dead Space remake was the second best selling game of January 2023. Games in the month’s top 10 best sellers list include Fire Emblem Engage, Elden Ring, Madden NFL 23, and FIFA 23

    The console led overall dollar sales this past December while the Nintendo Switch led in unit sales. Lastly, PlayStation 5 is the best selling console in dollar sales for 2022, and Nintendo Switch is the best selling console in unit sales for the year.
