Lego Marvel Avengers is the only new game in the top 10. Call of Duty and Rainbow Six: Siege sold better on Xbox One than PlayStation 4. Grand Theft Auto V and Fallout 4 sold better on PS4.
Grand Theft Auto is a beast. It's pass two years old since GTAV released and it's still frequently in NPD's top 10
Biggest franchise in gaming right there.
Both consoles doing well in software sales but damn all those first person shooters selling better in the X1 #shooterbox
Bundles! NPD doesn't count bundles. COD PS4 bundle and Star Wars bundles are still selling. Man, PS4 SW bundle sold 1 million during holidays. But yes, shooters are selling well on Xbone
Wow GTA got that longevity.
Talent, it always wins like a PS4.
I've always wondered why Minecraft continues to sell better on Xbox 360 and Xbox One than on PlayStation 4 on the monthly NPD charts
Maybe Microsoft being the owners of Minecraft has something to do with it. This, coupled with the fact the X360 was the first home console to get Minecraft, could explain why it's more popular on Xbox land. Just a guess, of course.
Microsoft owning the IP really wouldn't influence what platform the game sells most on in the consumers heads
GTA 5 came out in 2014 and it's still selling like hotcakes. Jesus.. Now I see why Rockstar is still updating GTA online. Rockstar is obviously still making a $hit ton of cash off of GTA 5 even to this day.
GTA 5 came out in 2013.
I know. I'm talking about the remastered version, not the original.
PC mods have obviously made GTA5 a game with longevity. Still kinda sad to see that the same games keep getting top pick in these charts, though; you'd think with all the clamoring people do over the huge variety of games they play, there would be other games overtaking them by now.
So, you think that the biggest franchises in gaming need to be overtaken in sales to prove that people buy a variety of other games and to validate their enjoyment of them, in the month of of January when there isn't any big new games anyway (most of them currently being smaller games that aren't track by NPD)? What a contrived bitter complaint. It doesn't even make any sense. Most games will never sell better than COD or GTA, just as on Nintendo platforms, most games will never sell better than Mario Kart or Smash Bros. It doesn't mean people are wrong to clamor over the perks of good variety.
Maybe he is. I for one am always surprised what the top selling games are for the ps4. So many shooters there.
What's GTA 5 at now, around or over 60mil?
Around 60 million, that's correct.
“Thanks to our fans and partners for making PlayStation 4 the top-selling platform and software sales leader in January, according to NPD,” a Sony spokesperson said in a statement provided to GamesBeat. “PS4 also saw impressive year-over-year growth in both hardware and software sales. We appreciate the support and will continue to deliver on our promise to bring the best entertainment experiences to gamers.” Congratulations Sony. They managed to sell more hardware and software than their direct competitor. That's pretty impressive in my opinion.
Does NPD factor in digital? Always wondered since I buy everything digital. If it doesn't then these NPD results are a joke since they're incomplete. What would the harm be in adding digital.
Oh look. Majority of the same thing every month. What else is new in NPD?
