Elden Ring, undisputed master in 2022?
Inevitably, in the middle of summer, gamers sometimes have more time to devote to time-consuming video game adventures, and this can make them want to give in to an impulse purchase! Across the Atlantic, some of them rushed to very specific productions, so much so that the monthly sales ranking has undergone some changes.although the video game craze waned during this period – we note a 9% drop in spending on games, equipment and accessories – although the sector brought in a paltry $4.18 billion during this period.
Let’s get back to what interests us here, namely July’s best sale on the Uncle Sam continent. If they are not completely representative of the French market, or more broadly European, sales in the United States are a good indicator of the popularity of such or such a title. During the previous month that passed, we had the privilege of witnessing the release of very beautiful nuggets of gold, such as Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Nevertheless, Elden Ring, which holds its place as number 1 in 2022, remains aware of this young and fresh competition. After all, the record-breaking title falls on the podium!

A statistic that may surprise at first glance because the game is free to play, but the data from the NDP group takes into account the sales of the game’s various Founders packs (Normal, Deluxe and Premium), which justifies this first. square.
Warner Bros. even manage to do a double whammy this month ago the company also managed to climb to third place in the ranking one of its biggest successes in recent months, namely LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. The very good surprise of this month of July, even if he does not finish on the podium and finishes his race behind Fire Ring, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 takes a very good fourth place.
