On this week’s episode of GamesBeat Decides, editors Mike Minotti and Jeff Grubb discuss the latest results from The NPD Group. Turns out that PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S are selling briskly. Pokémon was also the top-selling game of the year. The crew also answered a bunch of questions about the latest Nintendo Direct and Microsoft’s plans for its Activision Blizzard acquisition. Join them, won’t you?
