The NPD Group has released the list of top sold games for the US, show­ing how pow­er­ful Call of Duty is every year in the Unit­ed States. How­ev­er, the lat­est loot­er-shoot­er, Out­rid­ers, did rather well for itself dur­ing its debut week. 

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War made its way back to num­ber one, after being pushed down last month by Super Mario 3D World. Sec­ond in the chart is Mon­ster Hunter: Rise, which is also a new­ly released title. Out­rid­ers made the list sim­ply because the charts sales data extend­ed to April 3rd, and the game launched on April 1st. Super Mario 3D World, which was pre­vi­ous­ly first, end­ed up fourth last month. Round­ing out the top five is Spi­der-Man: Miles Morales.

As far as hard­ware is con­cerned, the PS5 has become the fastest-sell­ing con­sole in US his­to­ry in just five months. That’s in both terms of dol­lars and unit sales. How­ev­er, the Switch was actu­al­ly the best-sell­ing con­sole in March, and hard­ware sales over­all were up 47% com­pared to a year ago.
