PlayStation Store charts, December: Minecraft debuts at #1

December was a huge month on PlayStation Store, with older titles resurfacing thanks to year-end sales, alongside a handful of big new releases. One such game absolutely dominated: Minecraft. Mojang’s world-building phenomenon was way out ahead in first place on the PS3 chart after its first 13 days on sale. Other big new entries included Gran Turismo 6 on PS3, Terraria on PS Vita and flOw on PS4. (Battlefield 4, Minecraft, PlayStation, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, PSP, The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Episode 1 "All That Remains")

Multi-plats kicking serious butt over EXCLUSIVES.

Not really surprised. While Sonys 1st party game certainly look good (ive played KZ multi at the weekend) I don't feel that they have that wow factor that I'm personally looking for gameplay wise. But that's just me though lol. Already finished of AC4, currently having a field-day on BF :-D

That's true, but you're talking established powerhouse IPs. Killzone and Knack are not Sony's heavy hitters.
Neonridr  +   351d ago
ummm.. Killzone is in it's 4th iteration, it should be a killer game for Sony by now, otherwise why bother investing in it?

Didn't killzone sold over one mil ?
Volkama  +   351d ago
A game doesn't need to outsell COD to turn a profit and be worth investing in.

A game doesn't even need to be profitable as a standalone product to be of value to Sony at a time when they are trying to sell a new console.

Killzone has never been a big seller has it? And Knack they weren't even hoping for good review scores. But the games plug holes in the launch lineup (something MS actually did better with their first party choices imo).

Killzone and Knack were launch titles without alot of polish, but still SP wise they are pretty decent. I see some shortcomings here and there, but overall its a better experience than previous KZ games. Alot of the multiplatform titles were ports on PS4. Still not bad considering though. In another year or two there will be a massive graphics shift.

I think eventually it will be amazing, but many dislike Killzone because they keep that heavy soldier feeling to their games while other shooters have you flying around at speeds not possible with gear that you carry really. GG has been evolving with each game.

Minecraft is quite addicting. I never thought I would play it honestly until I played it with some family.

Sony's biggest hitter will be Uncharted or Infamous I believe or one of their other new IPs. They have at least 5 of those under wraps.

Strange post coming from an MS fan, as the exact same thing can be said of current XBOX / XBOXone game sales.

Aside from hardware specs, features, and price, exclusives are the only thing to set consoles apart.

I'm kind of curious what your point is.
Bigpappy  +   350d ago
My point is self explanatory. Has nothing to do with the stupid console war you guys are always waging.
My defending of Xbox is a direct reaction to the constant attack of the console.

All those things you mention are just as relevant as exclusives. Don't downplay features, price and spec's, because they often sell more consoles than the exclusives games. Often most exclusive are duds, in that anyone hardly buys them. Those that succeed are important, but the controller, features, price and spec's do way more to sell a console. Often people buy a console without knowing of any exclusives of interest. The heavy overhyping of exclusive is just on of the consequences of the so call war

You say that, but what exclusives would even make the list on Xbox?

Your point IS self-explanatory, in that you want to make some sort of statement about how exclusives- particularly PlayStation ones- aren't all that important because people buy more multiplats.

It's kinda hard to say you don't have an agenda now- and have people believe you- when you pretty much show your agenda brazenly at any other time.
Bigpappy  +   350d ago
You want to make that judgment and you will. There is nothing more I can say to convince you otherwise as you are one of those guys who is always in combative mode (the war is always on).

I already said what I had to say about the relevance of exclusives, but you guys what to play Xbox vs PS. I will indulge that when it seem relevant to do so.
Knushwood Butt  +   349d ago
So your point is more about whether exclusives are system sellers or not, which isn't really in doubt.

Halo, Gears of War, Uncharted, Gran Turismo, Super Mario #27, Wii Fit - these games have all sold systems.

Look at 2013 - many people voted for a new exclusive IP, The Last of Us, as game of the year, and it has sold millions of copies.

So, to be honest, I still really don't see what your point is, other than: there are some extremely popular multi-plat games out there.

GT6 has been getting most of my attention - quite a remarkable upgrade from GT5.
king_george  +   351d ago
Quick question: can u add a.i cars in split screen races? Me and a buddy have been playing alot of gt recently but we're dissapointed in this feature being excluded in GT5 :(

Im a newbie to this series so pardon me if my question sounds dumb lol
The_KELRaTH  +   351d ago
Just gave it a try and it's just 1 v 1 in split screen.

Not dumb as I had no clue either lol
