The Games Of June: Comparing 2010 Through 2014

Welcome, data heads, to another monthly retrospective. We’ve just updated May’s roundup with the NPD data we were waiting for, and the industry seems to be swinging back.

This month brings us some interesting changes, as more ID@Xbox games have rolled out (quietly), the Xbox One is now available without Kinect, and Nintendo continues to post big numbers for Mario Kart 8. Before we hit the summer slump, let’s look at what June 2014 has to offer.

We’ve included NPD data for the years gone by and will update this story with June’s NPD data once its available in July. As a reminder, NPD covers United States retail only. It's used as a data point for trends.
