Do you hear that, boy?

In addition to becoming Sony's fastest selling PS4 exclusive, God of War was also the best selling game of April according to the NPD Group. Alongside general increased earnings in the games industry, God of War sits at the number one spot for April and the number three spot for 2018 behind Monster Hunter: World and Far Cry 5. Sony's exclusive sports franchise, MLB: The Show, also made the top five for best sellers in April with The Show 18 being in the number three spot.

NPD analyst Mat Piscatella stated, "PlayStation 4 software dollar sales in April 2018 set an all-time April high for any platform since tracking began in 1995. The record had previously been held by Xbox 360 and was set in April 2008." Holy cow, Sony is on fire this year.

Here is the list for April's software sales:

  1. God of War 2018
  2. Far Cry 5
  3. MLB 18: The Show
  4. Labo Variety Kit
  5. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze*
  6. Mario Kart 8*
  7. Grand Theft Auto V
  8. Call of Duty: WWII
  9. Super Mario Odyssey*
  10. NBA 2K18
  11. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds**
  12. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands
  13. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild*
  14. Monster Hunter: World
  15. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege
  16. A Way Out**
  17. Yakuza 6: The Song Of Life*
  18. Sea Of Thieves
  19. Kirby Star Allies*
  20. FIFA 18**

*No digital sales included
**No PC digital sales included

Here is the list for 2018 thus far:

  1. Far Cry 5
  2. Monster Hunter: World
  3. God of War 2018
  4. Call of Duty: WWII
  5. Dragon Ball: Fighterz
  6. Grand Theft Auto V
  7. NBA 2K18
  8. MLB 18: The Show
  9. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds**
  10. Mario Kart 8*

Some other interesting things to note are that Labo seems to be doing pretty well and Yakuza 6 made the top 20 for April. I guess 2018 has just been an excellent year for everyone, regardless of niche or genre.
