March NPD Results

Forbes has NPD's analysis of video game sales in the U.S. for March, as new console sales have taken all the red numbers from the end of the last cycle and painted them black, saying: "Hardware sales last month were up 78 percent from 2013, from $222 million to $395 million, largely driven by PS4 and Xbox One sales." They also continue to analyze the shrinking market for sales of physical games: "U.S. consumers spent $1.025 billion on physical games, hardware and accessories in March according to NPD data, up 3% from 2013. Physical software sales were down 27 percent from $555 million in 2013 to $406 million in 2014. However, NPD does not include digital sales in this total." Forbes notes SuperData Research attempts to address this hole in the data by reporting on U.S. digital sales, saying: "The digital games market continues to grow, reaching $936 million in total sales in March, up 9% year-over-year." Here is NPD's list of bestselling games for the month:

  1. Titanfall (XBO, PC)
  2. inFAMOUS Second Son (PS4)
  3. South Park: The Stick of Truth (360, PS3, PC)
