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.
- Tom Clancy's The Division (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
- Far Cry: Primal (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
- The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD (Wii U)
- Grand Theft Auto V (PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
- UFC 2 (PS4, Xbox One)
- MLB 16: The Show (PS4, PS3)
- Pokken Tournament (Wii U)
- NBA 2K16 (PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3)
- Call of Duty: Black Ops III (Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
- 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!
