Rockstar reigns.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the Nintendo Switch's top performer in the US.

NPD Group tracks video game sales in the US, and on Monday released a refreshed list of the best-selling games on each current-generation console. You may be surprised to know that the top-selling game on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One was a game originally released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360: Grand Theft Auto V. Meanwhile, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe took the Switch's top spot.

The rest of the lists were comprised mostly of franchise titles, which will come as no surprise. Call of Duty: WWII, Black Ops 3 and Black Ops 4 were all top-five best sellers on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, along with Red Dead Redemption II (which took No. 2 on PS4 and No. 5 on Xbox One).

Exclusives appear to hit harder on the PS4, with Marvel's Spider-Man and God of War being the sixth and eighth best-selling games respectively on Sony's console. Microsoft's top 10 included no exclusives. Sorry, Master Chief.

As you'd expect, it's very much a Mario party over in Nintendo Switch land. Mario games took five of the top 10 spots. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was No. 2, while Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let's Go Eevee! made No. 7 and 8 respectively. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, meanwhile, came in third.
