    NPD -Titanfall tops chart, but PS4 leads hardware again in March

    While the Xbox One shooter fared well, Sony's PS4 led hardware sales for the third consecutive month in the US, NPD said

    The NPD Group has issued its March video game sales report, revealing a 28 percent drop in software sales (including PC) to $432 million. Hardware, however, soared 78 percent on the strength of the new consoles, totaling $395 million. Accessories were also up 4 percent to $224 million. Overall, total industry sales increased 3 percent to $1.03 billion.

    NPD noted that Sony's PlayStation 4 led hardware sales (for the third month in a row) despite the Xbox One exclusive Titanfall topping the games chart. Globally, Sony announced recently that PS4 had surpassed 7 million units sold.

    Hardware in general put in a robust performance during the last month, boosting the industry year-over-year. "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," noted NPD analyst Liam Callahan.

    In addition to Titanfall, game sales were driven by Sony's inFamous on PS4, Ubisoft's South Park: The Stick of Truth and Activision's Call of Duty: Ghosts. Check out the top 10 chart below.

    Wow. You pack in 2014's most hyped, most award winning title for free. You have your console discounted $50-$100(free of charge;retailers took the hit out their profits) and you still couldn't beat out the ps4. That's really shocking. MS has no other 2014 title with the amount of buzz that Titanfall has.

    Destiny is going to be EVERYTHING that EA and MS hoped titanfall would be

    They already have, Mynd. Have you not seen the price cuts and bundle deals all this month?

    I didn't see this coming. This is BAD.

    Of course we don't know the units between the two consoles for march BUT I think it's fair to say that the xbone would have got its ass kicked without retailers doing MS the favor and lowering the price unofficially.

    It's over, period. Microsoft lost their last ace, and that's the end of their Xbox One hopes and dreams.

    It's not hyperbole, it's not fanboy drivel. It is LITERALLY it for Xbox One. Microsoft has nothing left, nothing they can reveal tomorrow would fix the hole now created. There is no reason left for any one, hardcore or casual, to substantively invest in a Xbox One. Except if they want to play Titanfall. Which will also come to PS4 at some point.

    Sony took the last reason away that anyone would NEED to own a Xbox One over a PS4 (except TV SPORTS KINECT LOL GAMING), and the cavalcade of tiny titles that will be nice but won't stir up any sales is not going to salvage the bloated, overdesigned behemoth that was Xbox One.

    There may be some hardcore gamer's that stick around. Some did it for Gamecube. But the last bell tolled. Maybe next decade.

    The age of Microsoft is done.

    Probably, but if it still 90%, it still tight. Of course how they will fair next month without Titanfall remains to be seen.
    Now in saying that, UK is already showing us Titanfall on the XBO has more legs than Infamous, so it may well continue to drive sales next month.
    Thing being, it seems the PS4 doesn't need a game to drive sales.

    MS press:

    March NPD Results: Titanfall on Xbox One is Number One Selling Game
    The team and I had the honor of joining thousands of you in Austin, Texas at SXSW this past March as you waited in line for the Titanfall launch on Xbox One. We were blown away by your passion and enthusiasm on launch night and since then, it’s been exciting to see gamers
    around the world playing “Titanfall” on Xbox Live. Today, we congratulate our friends at Respawn Entertainment, and Electronic Arts, as “Titanfall” for Xbox One was named the number one selling game in March, according to NPD Group figures released today.

    I really don't consider throwing in a game a price cut.
    I want a genuine price cut, or as you say remove that Kinect (swap it for a IR/VR module so it can still do the voice ir blaster stuff).
    Either way the market is telling MS their product is not as desirable at it's current price/deals.

    There WERE real price cuts, not just bundling.

    Titanfall + Price Cuts + Bundling = PS4 still won this month.

    Wow I can't believe that the XBone with price cuts and the media's most overhyped darling as a pack-in still sold less hadware than the PS4.

    Infamous did well also for it to be the only one on a single platform.

    Sessler must be turning flips in his grave!

    Official price cut so it didn't matter were I went I could pick one up for the same price as PS4?
    I don't live in the states so I don't really keep up with these things, but my understanding was it was at certain retailers.
    Amazon for example wouldn't even count in this.

    Edit: I don't see any console prices at $399?

    MS store had a price cut, Best Buy\Wal Mart had them. The EU had some too.

    I don't know about NZ.

    Also, Amazon: http://www.engadget.com/2014/03/25/x...-with-discoun/


    Just do some googling man.

    I mean if you don't want to count these, then whatever that's on you. But let's not try to argue that there WERENT price cuts going around at major retailers world wide.

    True. Edit:Titanfall and forza are still packed in for free with a discounted price on the bundle.

    The bold is the scary part that MS should be worried about. What happens when the ps4 finally gets that title that's considered a system seller? What happens when the ps4 gets a 50-100 price cut and free game?
    Destiny is going to be EVERYTHING that EA and MS hoped titanfall would be

    A Kinectless version at $400 and the hope that this price point it can make up some ground... Despite the fact that at this price, without Kinect, it's still wholly inferior to the PS4 at least from a hardware perspective.

    And I guess you'd lose out on core Kinect functionality to boot.
