TMCC is still the top home console exclusive, almost 1.3m Well done Edit, Macusa is right, next to Smash Bro @ WeAreLegion, interesting question, Is it better to be an enthusiast and make positive comments about what you enjoy, or a hater and habitually go to articles they claim to have no interest in and spam hate, I choose the former. Edit 2 No WeAreLegion, show me where you see me mention Sony in this post? I talk what I am enthusiastic about, I usually don't mention a console I don't care about. On occasion I'll put facts into perspective, such as the number of Countries each sells in, that is what enrages the trolls, the FEAR of perspective.
Do you wake up thinking, "How can I make Xbox look good today, despite all odds?"
Which odds are those?
It's a real shame that Smash isn't up higher. The Wii U has really been killing it lately.
It's fine when you finish off Sony and wipe your mouth evertime there's something positive about them? I see some of the comments people make about these things, like they have stock, or its a sport franchise. You crack me up. The guy can't even make a positive comment about a game without you saying something stupid.
@Foehammer - No. That is not at all what you do. You just continually trash Sony and attempt to make Microsoft look good. @Everyone else - Look at my comment history and look at his. All he does is trash Sony and praise Microsoft, no matter what happens. If you've been on here more than a day, you'll know what my comments are like, as well. I just like talking about video games, no matter what system they're on. People like Foehammer are constantly trolling. Why do you think he has one bubble? It is NOT because of positivity. I assure you. @Ps4andxb1 - Says the guy who uses both consoles in his name in an attempt to look more bipartisan. Nobody is buying it. Just be honest. If you like the Xbox One more, just say it. Nobody will care. It's a good system. I certainly enjoy mine.
No smash bro is
Then he will just make the claim that it isn't exclusive because you can buy it on the 3DS. And then you'll say that every game in the MCC collection can be bought on other systems. Round and round it goes where it stops nobody knows. Thats the way it is with Foehammer AKA Axios2.
These people are funny man
Nevermind the fact that he's wrong, right? Even though Halo isn't the top exclusive, everybody else is funny for calling his ignorance out?
@spotie..nevermind the edit that was clearly there when i commented and corrects it to say just after smash bros. people are just funny...dat ps4 beast...wow go sony...sony i wanna marry u. god forbid someone ever says...hmm, halo still doing well, good for u.
I Think it would be higher if the game worked. I love halo but 343 dropped the ball here.
I tried online on TMCC today and it workedblike a freaking dream. They have made progress with it. They will make it right no doubt. The game is still amazing with its smooth campaigns. It deserves to he on this list regardless of its flaws. At least you dont fall through the ground like AC Unity.
ur just a dirty fanboy, defending broken game and flawed console.
Why are you spreading misinformation?
GTA V at second spot with over 2 million copies on just single platform.good This game has so much hard work behind it. truly deserved it
The GTA, COD, Far Cry numbers on the PS4 are are amazing.
Yep, have to agree. Great sales for the PS4's software. Microsoft lost the multiplatform games sales this gen. They belong to the PS4 now. Most people will purchase the PS4 version of a multiplatform game. Microsoft were stingy on the X1 hardware, now pay the price...
Yeah, thats one of the biggest changes in this generation. One of the reasons of the gap between the PS4 and everyone else.
"Microsoft were stingy on the X1 hardware, now pay the price..." It wasn't that they were stingy on the hardware its just that Kinect was their top priority for their system. I remember they said a while ago that they didn't aim for maximizing graphical performance at the initial price point because they believed that Kinect was more important to the system than more powerful hardware. Imagine if they had graphics as a priority then the system would have been a lot more powerful than the PS4.
So software sales on PS4 isnt 50 million, its 59 million sold.
I think it's including these numbers, Nonetheless extremely impressive.
These charts constantly are just ridiculous. Alot of ppl buy the games digital so these numbers don't say much to me.
Why don't we get digital sales numbers? You would think the big 3 could easily track those numbers because its buying directly from them.
Because most people have the common sense not to buy digital, because retail is almost always cheaper, you can sell your retail games once you get done with them, and retail games usually have pre-order bonuses that the digital games somehow seem to miss (which is beyond stupid to me). The only benefit to buying digital is pre-download, and early Access through EA etc... If I had to guess I'd say digital games sales make up around 10% TOPS of the overall game sales. GTAV for example sold 2.2m on PS4 retail, and most likely 220k digital. Huge gap, and as @Ausbo said they track digital numbers, which is how they know which game is the top selling game of the month (top 1 - 10), the number just must not be that impressive, because they have no problem saying when a game broke their previous digital sales record. Digital will only become popular, is pre-install happens will all games, discounts are applied to all digital games (10% with PS+ / XBLG subscription), 1 week early access is applied to all digital pre-orders, and all pre-order content comes with the digital versions.
100% agreed. I own 2 Xbox One discs.. but my HDD is literally filled with games. My next purchase is an external HDD. I gameshare with a buddy and it makes no sense for either of us to buy retail discs. @ABizzel1 You are very wrong. Gamesharing is a major benefit over retail discs.
I bought Far Cry 4 on PS4 and its amazing. Given the fact that the rest of Ubisoft's are shit, it's really surprising.
sad to see LBP 3 so low,it wasn't marketed as well as previous games. *Facepalm*Sad day to see a remaster selling more than a brand new game.Good to see Far Cry 4 selling well
I have read it isnt as good as the first two but still a lot of fun and that Sony has already patched it fixing the bugs people encountered. I think those two things drove it down. I bought the Little Big Planet 3 / Lego Batman 3 PS4 bundle Thursday and I cant wait for it to get here. I have heard that LBP3 is actually a lot of fun and being someone who has never played one before I am looking forward to it. Some may disagree with me but I have always had luck with IGN reviews. I have never disliked a game they recommended and I always read the review completely and carefully. They gave LBP3 a 9.5! That tells me it is worth it. Plus my kid can play too and PS4 and XB1 need a lot more kid friendly games because Nintendo has almost exclusivity when it comes to games I will play around my 4 year old.
