NPD: FIFA 21 in first position in the USA, Nintendo Switch continues to grind records
Despite the scent of next-gen, in October the US gaming market saw a significant increase in revenues in all areas. Let's analyze the data.

Software sales, to begin with, generated revenue of $ 3.43 billion, up 12% from last year. FIFA 21 took the top spot, making it the first game in the football series to achieve this in the United States of America. Watch Dogs Legion finished in third place behind the immortal Madden NFL 21 and ahead of NHL 21. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit debuted in fifth position, while Pikmin 3 Deluxe did not make it to the Top 20.

The hardware segment saw earnings grow up to $ 259 million, up 41% compared to the same period last year: thanks to the continued success of Nintendo Switch, which recorded the second best October ever in the US in terms of units sold, and the absolute record for collections. This is possible because the previous record holder, Nintendo Wii, while selling 70,000 units more than the Nintendo Switch in October 2009, was costing $ 50 less. The sale of accessories also went very well, generating revenues of $ 148 million, up 23% compared to last year. Spending on controllers, in particular, hit a new record for October.
