Titanfall did, however, take the number one spot on the software chart.
Despite all the hype for Microsoft-exclusive mechtastic shooter Titanfall, it still hasn't managed to move more Xbox Ones than PS4s in March, reveals the official NPD sales numbers. That's not to say that Titanfall performed poorly, as it still sits in the number one spot on the software sales chart, above the PS4 exclusive Infamous: Second Son. Could it be all those Titanfall gamers are playing it on the PC, rather than Microsoft's box?
Here's the full sales chart below:
- Titanfall (Xbox One, PC)
- Infamous: Second Son (PS4)
- South Park: The Stick of Truth (360, PS3, PC)
- Call of Duty: Ghosts (360, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Wii U, PC)
- Dark Souls II (PS3, 360)
- Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (PS4, Xbox One, PS3, 360)
- NBA 2K14 (360, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, PC)
- Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster (PS3, Vita)
- The Lego Movie Videogame (360, PS3, 3DS, Wii U, Xbox One, PS4, Vita)
- Minecraft (360)
"As seen in the past few months, hardware sales for March 2014 saw strong growth over March 2013," NPD analyst Liam Callahan said in a statement. "Sales increases were driven completely by consoles sales due mainly to continued success from the PS4 and Xbox One."
Microsoft confirmed that it sold 311,000 Xbox Ones in March, and while Sony has yet to make an official comment, estimates put PS4 sales at around 370,000. So while it did beat the Xbox One, it wasn't by a huge margin, and it's very clear that both consoles are selling well.
If you're noticing a distinct lack of PC games on this list, it's because the NPD sales charts only takes into account games sold at physical brick-and-mortar video game stores.
