10 Best-Selling Retail Releases of 2015 so far

VGChartz's Craig Snow: "The gaming industry is so used to the notion that the biggest hits of the year are released in the final quarter, so as to capitalise on holiday sales, that we sometimes forget that each year also plays host to some big early hitters.

It mostly is the case, of course, that publishers aim to release their most lucrative titles towards the end of the year, but not always. This list of the top 10 new retail releases of 2015 in terms of sales illustrates some potent exceptions to that rule."

Bloodborne and Zelda Majora Mask are only exclusives in the list which is pretty impressive feat.
I predict three more exclusives to be added as tear end namely Uncharted collection, Halo 5 and Dragon quest heroes(which already sold 1 million copy and worldwide release this Oct)

Glad to see bloodborne on the list. As Phoenix below said its only retail. I expect bloodborne to be close to 2 million mark.

not even one XOne exclusive in the list ... but still Xone fans keep bragging about the system's numerous exclusives titles ...yet no matter how many they (addvertise they) are if are deprived from quality no sales will come neither for the games nor the system

ChickenOfTheCaveMan2711d ago

Such an awesome game (and I've never played a Souls' game), I really hope black Friday and the holidays will bump its sales.

FITgamer2712d ago

Up until this month Sony and Nintendo are the only ones who released any retail exclusives...

demonddel2711d ago

And you not mentioning or seeing that other company helps you with sleeping at night right

Metallox2711d ago

Splatoon is also there.

PhoenixUp2712d ago

What's important for people to note is that these numbers only account for retail

MasterCornholio2712d ago (Edited 2712d ago )

Glad to see Bloodborne on the list. I'm also happy to see Splatoon and Majoras Mask as well. Especially Splatoon because hopefully this starts a trend of Nintendo creating new IPS.

As for Batman and The Witcher 3 I would they that the sales are well deserved. However, they really messed up with the PC version of Arkham Knight.

no xbox one exclusive? Gonna be hard to make the top 10 now that Madden, Fifa, CoD, Assassins Creed, Battlefront, MGSV, and Fallout4 will be released in the remaining months of 2015.

DemonChicken2712d ago

No xbox exclusives because not many exclusives has been released from beginning of 2015 to now

Also note the retail.

Most of the really big exclusives are coming in the holiday

Spotie2711d ago

With some really big multiplats right alongside em.

I'm pretty sure a little game called Halo 5 will be able to clear 3 million sold at retail. Or did you forget about that game?

MysticStrummer2711d ago

Did you not read his whole comment? Several of the titles he listed will sell more than Halo 5.

Gameseeker_Frampt2711d ago

@MysticStrummer

I read the comment just fine. He listed 7 games. This is a Top 10 list where the current best sellers are a little over 3 million. Every single game he listed could sell more than Halo 5 and Halo 5 could still be one of the 10 best selling retail releases of 2015. Besides Arkham Knight and The Witcher 3, which games currently on the list does one realistically think will outsell Halo 5 this year?

I may be a Playstation fan, but I'm not so much of a fan to think that Halo 5 will sell poorly. That takes a special kind of delusion.

I'm so glad The Witcher 3 pulled off 6 million copies. More people needed to experience the Witcher universe.
