So with Tropical Freeze at #5 here, I went back to the old site to see how it faired back on Wii U, and wow it didn't even break the Top 10.

https://www.**********/threads/npd-sales-results-for-february-2014-up2-ps4-xb1-wii-u-360-hardware-bd-poke-dk.784224/

1. Call of Duty: Ghosts (360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, PC)
2. The Lego Movie Videogame (360, PS3, 3DS, Wii U, Xbox One, PS4, Vita)
3. NBA 2K14 (360, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, PC)
4. Thief (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3)
5. Grand Theft Auto V (360, PS3)
6. Battlefield 4 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3, PC)
7. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (360, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Wii U, PC)
8. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII (PS3, 360)
9. Minecraft (360)
10. Bravely Default (3DS)
So it's an improvement at least, especially since it's only been two days.

Does the heart good to see such an amazing game do so well.

The PS4 can't stop beasting.

The PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 Wireless Controller Black is now the all-time best-selling Gamepad in dollar sales.
Damn, too many people buying a second DS4 so they don't wait while they charge the first :p

Amazing records for GoW, game definitely deserves it. It’s the direction I want these cinematic-type games to head.

Also, that Labo performance is supposed to be bad? #4 looks good to me

MLB the silent god. Congrats to SSM for the success.
Hey maybe now the dev team can afford some better animators and some people that actually care about pushing the graphics and franchise into the next gen. MLB THE SHOW has been stale for years. It's a great game if it is your first time for sure, but I'm tired of it. I wish them all the best.

March:
15. A Way Out**

April
16. A Way Out^


Seems like a really good hold.
It's above Kirby even.

The PS4 was not the only beast this month. God of War going to work.

Of course it’s the highest total dollar amount for a PlayStation exclusive, it’s 2018 and inflation is a factor. It’d be more concerning if it wasn’t!
Games still sell sell for 60$ in the US and it has been that way for a long time. Inflation is not the cause, it's the amount of units sold.

God lf War deserves all the success, its the best PS4 game, and thats saying something. Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, Persona 5, Horizon etc are heavyweights in their own right.


And props to San Diego for the MLB the Show series, if theres any sports series that deserves GOTY noms...its The Show

Not gonna lie, was kinda worried about SSM for most of the gen considering they went through a massive shakeup around 2014(?), but I'm glad they've been able to bounce back

they'd be smart to have two healthy platforms on the market at the same time instead of waiting for one to start waning in sales before launching the new one.
I'd argue a PS5 would be a huge hit to the PS4's popularity. Not to say the PS4 couldn't still be a success if Sony continued to push it but a brand new next gen console would but an immediate serious dent in the PS4's status.

God of War. PS4 Pro.

PS4 breaking records left n right. I said damn.

But...exclusives don't matter....

Imagine if God of War was available on XBO, or an XBO exclusive...

A big drop for Sea of Thieves. Any idea how much it sold last month?

MLB doing work. SoT must of fell off badly if it no longer is in the top 10 of the year.

So happy for Yakuza 6 and MH.
