The NPD charts for September 2018 are out. Surprise! Marvel’s Spider-Man was the month’s top seller. It was just revealed that Insomniac’s superhero game set numerous records, so it’s not a shock to see it nab the top spot. However, sports games were also on fire for the month, with Madden NFL 19FIFA 19, NHL 19, and NBA 2K19 all in the top 10.

It was a relatively strong month overall, with NBA 2k19 having the best launch of a sports title in terms of dollar sales. In addition, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey had a “double-digit percentage sales growth” from the launch of Assassin’s Creed Origins. Ubisoft had previously said Odyssey had set franchise records for this generation, so this news isn’t surprising.

On the hardware front, the PlayStation 4 came on top yet again, with the most units sold since September 2014. The PS4 Slim was also the best-selling piece of hardware for September 2018.
