8 Comments

The NPD Group has revealed the best-selling games of February 2020, which comprises physical games and a limited amount of digital data. In addition to recent heavy-hitters like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, Grand Theft Auto 5 continues to chart more than six years after its initial launch.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was followed by NBA 2K20 and Grand Theft Auto 5 in February, with Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and The Division 2 rounding out the top five. Ring Fit Adventure was also in the top 10, which could come in handy for those looking to stay away from a public gym during the coronavirus outbreak.

Interestingly, there was not a single February 2020 game included on the top 20 list. It was a relatively slow month that saw the launch of a few games like Dreams and Darksiders Genesis, but they launched later in the month.

Overall software sales were down 36 percent compared to this time last year, with much of the decline attributed to the slow release period. As we move further into March and April and more highly-anticipated games release, that should begin improving.

Nintendo Switch was the best-selling system in February 2020 and is currently the best-selling gaming console for the year. Despite this, hardware spending was down 34 percent, with players' eyes likely on the upcoming PS5 and Xbox Series X instead of the older systems.

Just like in January, the Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 remained the best-selling gaming accessory, but accessory purchases were down 14 percent compared to last year.

Total spending for February 2020 totaled $755, down 29 percent from last year. You can see the full top 20 best-selling games for the month below.
