Even though the PS4 and Far Cry 5 have been the best sellers in 2018 thus far, things might change as we head into the Holiday season as Fall will see a lot of new games get released.
NPD Analyst Mat Piscatella posted on an official blog that he predicts that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be the biggest selling game of 2018. This is a safe bet considering that gamers have been waiting to play a Red Dead Redemption sequel since 2010.
Also in the US market, he feels Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be the second highest selling game followed by Battlefield 5, NBA 2K19 and Far Cry 5. Spider-Man on PS4 is predicted to be the 10th best selling game of the entire year.
Interesting enough, Piscatella feels by the end of the year the Nintendo Switch console will be the best seller as we head into the Fall season. This is all thanks to Nintendo releasing mega titles such as Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate later this year.
That said, the PS4 console should stay strong so it will be interesting to see if his prediction comes true or not. I feel the PS4 might come out on top since Red Dead Redemption 2 and Black Ops 4 won’t be available on Switch and those two games will sell a lot of copies!
