Every month, the NPD Group releases information on the best-selling games, game consoles and accessories across all video game platforms in the United States. While it doesn't account for total worldwide sales, it does provide a nice look at one of the largest video game markets. Mat Piscatella, a fantastic analyst for NPD, has shared the results for June 2020.

We already knew that The Last of Us Part 2 had sold over 4 million copies in its first three days, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to learn it was the best-selling game of June 2020. Meanwhile, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare continues to chug along and was the second best-selling game of the month.

The Xbox Elite Series 2 controller was the best-selling accessory in June and is the best-selling accessory of 2020 so far. The Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console.

Like always, remember that NPD is based on dollar sales, not units sold.

Here are the June 2020 results:

  • Total sales: $1.2 billion, up 26% year-over-year.
  • PC and video games software: $540 million, up 49% year-over-year.
  • Video games hardware: $191 million, down 17% year-over-year
  • Video game accessories and game cards: $417 million, up 29% year-over-year.
