Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on top in the US in November, 2019

Call of Duty Modern Warfare

There was a lot of competition in November for the top spot of the NPD chart in terms of dollar sales, with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Pokemon Sword, Pokemon Shield, and the Pokemon double pack all vying for second place. When taken separately, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was the clear winner.

In dollar sales it was Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order that claimed the top spot for November, behind only Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which is still leading the charge as the best-selling game of 2019 so far.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the ninth best-selling game of 2019 to date, behind Super Smash Bros Ultimate, the best fighting game in US history, but ahead of Anthem. The success of the latest Star Wars game is a testament to the storytelling expertise of developers Respawn Entertainment.

The third, fourth, and fifth places in the NPD chart were taken by Pokemon Sword, Pokemon Sword and Shield Dual Edition, and Pokemon Shield respectively. Analyst Mat Piscatella explained that if the sales for all three products were combined, then the resulting release would be second in the chart, without even including digital sales. Collectively the games also saw the highest launch month in terms of dollar sales for any Pokemon games in US history.

Other categories reflect the closing down of the current console generation, with total game spending for November down by 19 percent year-on-year to $2.3 billion. Hardware spending dropped to $891 million, a decrease year-on-year of 26 percent, within which the Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console for the month, and 2019 so far.

Spending on accessories and game cards dropped by 14 percent year-on-year to $433 million. The best-selling product in accessory sales was the Xbox Elite Wireless Series 2 Controller.
