Happy New Year! 2018 doesn't have any big hardware releases slated like last year did with the Switch and Xbox One X, but it should still be a big year for gaming as the PS4 continues to do well and with the Switch approaching its first anniversary. No notable game releases this month except for Dragon Ball FighterZ and Monster Hunter World.

Yearly Rankings


Note: Monthly & weekly rankings are usually updated daily on Amazon, typically sometime in the early to mid afternoon. Also, NPD's months, which use a "4-4-5" calendar, are not perfectly matched to Amazon's months, which go by the standard calendar. Some items in these rankings may be marked with a typographical symbol:

* Indicates item available for pre-order for release in a later month. Does not count towards current month's NPD numbers.
† Indicates item currently being sold primarily or exclusively through third-party sellers due to limited stock. Most or all sales don't count towards NPD numbers.
‡ Indicates used/pre-owned hardware. Does not count towards NPD numbers.
