Capcom’s Resident Evil 7 Biohazard was the top-selling game in the US for the month of January, according to The NPD Group.

The best-selling console was once again PlayStation 4, with the top-selling PS4 SKU remaining the Uncharted 4 500GB bundle. Interestingly, NPD said the third best selling console for the month was the NES Classic.

The release of Resident Evil 7 helped push overall sales numbers up for the month, 14% higher than last January. However, hardware spending saw a “19 percent decline versus January 2016,” down to $127 million

According to NPD, the last time Capcom had a game come out at the top of the month’s sales was 2009’s Resident Evil 5.

Grand Theft Auto V continues to be a dominant force and a huge driver of revenue for Rockstar parent company Take-Two Interactive. The game was the third-best selling for January 2016. Grand Theft Auto V has now sold 75 million copies since its 2013 release.
