PS4 Is The Top-Selling Console In US Again During March 2016

March isn’t always a big month for video game sales, but a couple of strong releases in the first part of 2016 are fueling some strong statements from industry leaders. According to figures released by the NPD Group today, the PlayStation 4 was once again the best selling console in the United States for the month of March.


In a statement, Sony thanked its fans and partners for continuing the console's sales streak, as well as putting PS4 as "software sales leader for the month of March."

“Thank you to our fans and partners for making PlayStation 4 the top-selling console and software sales leader for the month of March, as well as the number-one console for fans of The Division, according to NPD. We are truly humbled by the success and look forward to delivering more amazing gaming experiences throughout 2016, including the launch of PlayStation VR this October.”


As for Xbox One, Microsoft marketing boss Mike Nichols just provided a statement with regard to the popularity of Xbox Live, while Nintendo did not provide an update on its hardware or service use. As for the software, check out the top 10 best selling games on March 2016 below. 

Software

  1. Tom Clancy's The Division (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  2. Far Cry: Primal (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  3. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD (Wii U)
  4. Grand Theft Auto V (PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
  5. UFC 2 (PS4, Xbox One)
  6. MLB 16: The Show (PS4, PS3)
  7. Pokken Tournament (Wii U)
  8. NBA 2K16 (PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3)
  9. Call of Duty: Black Ops III (Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
  10. Minecraft ( PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3)

 

I wouldn't be surprised if the PS4 will be the top console again in the US for the months of April to June, as the PS4 exclusives Ratchet and Clank (available now), Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, No Man's Sky, and Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness are scheduled to release on those months. It's simply just a good time to be a PS4 owner this year. Congrats again to Sony for a job well done!

Sony Interactive Entertainment (formerly SCE) is one of the distributors of No Man's Sky, so probably it's one of the reasons why it is console exclusive to PS4.

PS4 does what XB1 don't.

I'm still wondering who if anyone will fill Microsoft's space when they slink off into the sunset as Xbox becomes an App. I don't think it's Apple because they are now putting everything into their electric car. I really hope it's Sega and the Dreamcast 2 movement. It would be grass roots and open to tons of platforms but that's the kind of system we need. A Worldwide scalable system that can translate all Japanese content on the fly and take games Playstation won't.

But I could go on all day. Viva Playstashiione!

I would give some of my organs for a Dreamcast 2 or just a new Sega System.

Anybody seeing through The Division yet or is it finally the giant MP game that isn't the same thing over and over again for new equipment like every other MP game?

I'm almost as hyped for VR as I was for Mario 64. I just can't wait. A home movie theatre. Going inside games. Imagine if there is support for the next Bioshock. Or even the Bioshock collection. If I could be in Rapture it would be incredible.

The division for the most part is what you explained. It's got some lasting appeal and does better than others as far as end game content. However the Dark Zone is a joke. What was once suspenseful and fun is now a place you don't want to enter. Since most consumers are now max level they just hang out, wait for a group to take down some bad guys and get the loot then they snipe, shoot and take you down to steal the loot you just got. Going rogue used to be considered a risk, now it's a novelty.

That's my gripe. Creating a big selling game has become dropping the art and creating maps and gear. The only reason I got Battlefront is because I like Star Wars and they refuse to make SP games.

It's just frustrating at this point. I knew as a consumer it would get abused eventually. Which was without doubt the reason for going rogue if you attacked another player. However that's not stopping full level players from greed.

I seriously dropped it after I leveled to 29 and beat all the main missions. The DZ was just hitting all the wrong notes for me. I hate getting swarmed by all these a**holes. Haha I just returned to FO4.
