Sony Interactive Entertainment released its weekly PS4 digital sales graph for the Western PlayStation Store, related to the interval between March 5th and March 11th.
You may have a look at the whole top-twenty below.
NieR: Automata captured the tail of its own 50 percent anniversary reduction, leading at a second week in the very top. Yoko Taro’s game sold well enough to hold back the brand new Hokuto Ga Gotoku, which had been the very first name to dethrone Monster Hunter World in retail stores this week.
Capcom’s juggernaut really slipped into fourth place, also overtaken by the PS4 port of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel.
NieR: Automata wasn’t the only game benefitting from a substantial discount this week, since Tales of Berseria and Gundam Breaker 3 were also marketed for less than half the price.
Should you’re wondering what owned Japanese gamers to buy Battleborn en masse pushing it to fifth place, it was and still is discounted by 90% for PlayStation Plus users.
This chart also gives the coup de grâce to Nippon Ichi Software’s Your Four Knight Princesses Training Story, that is probably the biggest launch flop in the recent history of this niche programmer. It ranked 20th digitally on PS4, also failed to make the top-twenty whatsoever at retail. Yesterday, we learned thanks to the top-sixty by Media Create that it had been ranked 22nd on PS4, 26th on Switch, and 28th on PS Vita. It really ranked fourth on PS Vita digitally but contemplating the waning popularity of Sony’s handheld that’s not an accomplishment.
Just a few days back, we learned NieR: Automata handed 2.5 million units shipped at retail and sold via electronic download.
