U.S Charts: Black Ops III and PS4 top December sales


Call of Duty: Black Ops III and PS4 were the top sellers in December in the U.S, although that didn't stop other software and hardware from having a great month.

According to the latest NPD report, PS4 outsold Xbox One during December and across 2015, with Sony commenting saying worldwide holiday sales topped 5.7 million consoles and 35 million games.


On the bright side Xbox One had its best month ever in terms of hardware unit sales in December too, meaning that combined cumulative sales of both PS4 and Xbox One was 47% higher than that of PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for the same period from launch.

On the software side, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 was both the best seller of December 2015 and the 2015 charts in general. Star Wars Battlefront took second place, while Fallout 4, Madden 2016 and NBA 2K16 made up the top 5.

I'm still shocked as to how minecraft stays in the charts! Hasn't everyone got it already! Plus the physical chart - I'd rather have digitally so you can jump in and out of it quickly - I have a few games like that which I have digitally and if a game is downloading a patch or update I'll boot one of those for a while until the download is finished then return to the original game :)

Minecraft... downloaded it... played it for an hour or so and never went back to it. Kids love it though so it wasn't a waste of money.

yeah, I like it - have it on the PC, just surprised that 'physical' copies seem to always be in the charts, I can imagine digital as its a digital friendly game, but physical.... A lovely 25-50 gig bluray disc with about 200 meg of content on it haha! It just seems unusual cos everyone probably owns it in some form already

Seriously? You think the steam boxes are better than a console? First they are heavily over priced, not all games work as they need to be converted to Linux and the os is supposed to be a bit crap. Plus the oculus probably won't work with it due to not being windows/system requirements and they are probably a bitch to update. You would be better using a hdmi to your living room or the steam link (if you don't mind a sub-par hd signal as going over wireless). I doubt steam will steam the living room space over a console
