Total video game industry sales in March 2014 increased by 3 percent to whooping $1.03 billion.

“Software declines in March 2014 stemmed from poor comparisons to new launches from last March. Collectively, March 2014 launches sold 42 percent less than March 2013 launches”, said NPD analyst Liam Callahan.

“Last March we saw eight of the top ten games were new launches with games like Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, Gears of War: Judgment, God of War: Ascension. This March saw six of the top ten games as new launches with Titanfall, inFAMOUS Second Son, South Park: The Stick Of Truth, and Dark Souls II.”

NPD also added that despite Xbox One exclusive Titanfall topping the software sales chart, PlayStation 4 continues to lead hardware sales for the third month in a row.

“PS4 and Xbox One continue to see success with cumulative sales of the two consoles through the first five months currently totaling more than double that of their predecessors, the PS3 and Xbox 360” added Callahan.

So there you have it folks PlayStation 4 continues to dominate NPD hardware sales despite amazing performance of Titanfall.
