Outriders Soars Up Sales Charts Despite Launching On Xbox Game Pass
 

 
The game had the third spot on both the PlayStation and Xbox sales charts for the month.

The NPD Group has released its monthly video US game sales report for March 2021, and they seem to further confirm that a game's inclusion on Xbox Game Pass does not doom its sales. Outriders, a surprise hit that launched day-and-date on the service, still managed to put up impressive numbers on Xbox.

Outriders managed to take the third spot on the Xbox top-sellers list for March 2021, trailing only a*sassin's Creed Valhalla and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. This put it above other huge games like Madden NFL 21 and Forza Horizon 4, both of which are also available on Xbox Game Pass. The game actually came out on April 1, but the sales data extended to April 3, meaning it did this in just a few days.

But Outriders also managed to take the third spot on the PlayStation charts, only trailing Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Spider-Man: Miles Morales while actually beating a*sassin's Creed Valhalla. Outriders was third on the all-platform charts, as well, and because many of the games on that list are from last year, it's likely to climb even higher.

Given the franchise's huge popularity, it shouldn't be a big surprise that Monster Hunter Rise took the top spot for the Nintendo Switch March 2021 chart, and it's the only game Nintendo didn't publish on the list at all. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, Mario Kart 8, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Super Mario 3D All-Stars rounded out the top five. This might be the last time we see 3D All-Stars on the list, as sales were ended on March 31, but retailers still have the game in stock in some areas.

As far as hardware is concerned, the PS5 continues its record-setting pace. Through five months, it's the fastest-selling console in US history, both in terms of dollar and unit sales. This is despite its limited availability, which many continue through the year due to semiconductor shortages. The Switch was actually the best-selling console of March, however, and hardware sales overall were up by about 47% compared to a year ago, which was early in the pandemic.

Really surprised about this, but I’m guessing a lot of people just don’t have both consoles

It's a pretty decent game imo. Pretty impressive to be third best seller even though it's on gamepass

I started with the Pyro, but after I get it leveled up I'll make a Trickster next...Sht seems like it takes a long time to level up your character
