November 2018 NPD: Red Dead Redemption 2 Takes the Top Spot, Strong Console Sales

The November 2018 NPD results are in, thanks to NPD analyst Mat Piscatella and VentureBeat. This month saw some extremely strong performance from both software and hardware. Red Dead Redemption 2 was the bestselling game of the month, with Fallout 76 and both Pokémon titles making a strong debut on the charts despite a lack of digital sales.

The Nintendo Switch was the bestselling console of November 2018 in dollar sales, while the PlayStation 4 was the bestselling console in regards to unit sales.
