New sales numbers from the market research group NPD have shown that March was a slow month for the sales of video games, even with Sony and From Software having shipped their latest PS4 exclusive Bloodborne and EA having shipped Battlefield Hardline, Visceral Games’ first person shooter.

One analyst in the employ of NPD, Liam Callahan, has spoken about the slow sales. “Physical software sales decreased by 6 percent from March 2014 as strong growth of [PS4, Xbox One, Wii U] helped to partially offset the sharp declines of seventh generation consoles, which were down 52 percent, and physical PC games, down 64 percent,”

“The launch of Bloodborne ranked as second overall in software sales this month,” said Callahan.

“But also has the second-highest sales for the debut month of a first-party game on the PS4, after Infamous: Second Son, in March 2014.”

In regards to total software units shipped, these are the numbers that NPD present.

  1. Battlefield: Hardline (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, 360, PS3, PC)
  2. Bloodborne (PS4)
  3. Grand Theft Auto V (Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3)
  4. Mario Party 10 (Wii U) (sold 290,000 copies physical and digital, according to Nintendo)
  5. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3, PC)
  6. MLB 15: The Show (PS4, PS3)
  7. Minecraft (360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4)
  8. NBA 2K15 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3, PC)
  9. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (PS4, Xbox One)
  10. Final Fantasy: Type 0 HD (PS4, Xbox One)
