PS4 back on top for May as The Witcher 3 takes U.S by storm

The Witcher 3 was the top selling title in the US sales charts in May, while PS4 outsold Xbox One.

"In May 2015, overall sales across hardware, new physical software, and accessories declined by 13%,” the NPD Group’s Liam Callahan said.

"The 20% growth in accessories was unable to offset the 18% and 25% respective declines in new physical software and hardware."

PS4 was the best seller for the month for hardware and software, making April the only month of the year so far that Microsoft's console has topped its rival.

Sony reiterated that the PS4 remains the cumulative sales champion and has shifted over 20 million units worldwide, although Xbox One isn't exactly in trouble in the U.S.

"Xbox One sales in the US were up 81% over May 2014 and active global Xbox Live members, Xbox One and Xbox 360, were up 20%," Microsoft said in a statement.

Nintendo saw Splatoon debut in fifth place on the charts, while Super Smash Bros. is also still charting, so not a bad month.

Here’s the full top ten chart:
  1. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  2. Mortal Kombat X (PS4, Xbox One)
  3. Grand Theft Auto 5 (PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
  4. Minecraft (Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4)
  5. Splatoon (Wii U)
  6. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PC)
  7. NBA 2K15 (Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, PC)
  8. FIFA 15 (PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii , 3DS, Vita)
  9. MLB 15: The Show (PS4, PS3)
  10. Super Smash Bros. (3DS, Wii U)

why do some games (Like GTA V) include the PC sales but gamers like Minecraft and Mortal Kombat X dont?
