“We got this”, you can almost hear them say.
Injustice made superb use of its super hero pedigree – it sold 424,000 units since releasing in April, making it the best selling title of the month across all platforms. Other games that made the top include Dead Island: Riptide, Bioshock: Infinite, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and surprisingly enough, Defiance.
NPD analyst Liam Callahan recently stated in the company’s latest sales figures for the United States that though industry sales dropped by 25 percent to $495.2 million, the month was better than April 2012.
“Despite overall declines, April title launches in 2013 fared better than games that launched in April 2012, up 118 percent in unit sales and 130 percent in dollar sales. This increase was driven by games like Injustice , Dead Island: Riptide, and Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins.”
