Something as big as a Titan ought to have long strides, and Titanfall proves it had what it took to remain the top-selling title in the U.S. after claiming the crown back in March. The March releases which spiced up NPD's top ten bestselling games largely gave way to returning champs last month like Grand Theft Auto V and of course, Call of Duty: Ghosts, with the exceptions being the new LEGO Hobbit and Amazing Spider-Man 2 titles.
As of April, PS4 and Xbox One software sales combined are already 40 percent higher than the total amount of PS3 and Xbox 360 titles sold during the first sixth months of last year, while Wii U software sales grew 80 percent year-over-year. However, software sales overall for last month still ended up 10 percent lower than April 2013's revenue ($227.9 million versus $254.3 million).
Microsoft confirmed that it managed to sell 115,000 Xbox One consoles last month, but this wasn't enough to push it ahead of Sony's PS4 which according to NPD remained the best-selling console in the U.S. for four months in a row. NPD is quick to highlight how lifetime-to-date hardware sales for the two next-gen consoles are now more than double the combined total for the PS3 and Xbox 360 during their first six months on the market, which certainly speaks well for demand.
