June NPD: Batman and PS4 lead the way

Splatoon remains at number five

June’s NPD numbers were rather ordinary and predictable. That is, nothing terribly shocking happened. The PlayStation 4 was still the top console and Batman: Arkham Knight led the way for software (with the PS4 version the biggest seller).

For the Nintendo and paint-loving faithful, Splatoon remained in the number five spot. However, unlike last month, it sits alone as the lone Nintendo-only game to crack the top 10. Worrying? Probably.

For MMO fans, The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited sneaked its way into the top 10 thanks to its recent console debut. Not bad for a game that most thought would be dead on arrival — especially in the crowded PC space.

Here’s your software top 10 for June 2015:

  1. Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  2. The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited (Xbox One, PS4, PC)
  3. Lego: Jurassic World (360, Xbox One, PS4, PS3, 3DS, Wii U, Vita)
  4. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  5. Splatoon (Wii U)
  6. Minecraft (360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4)
  7. Grand Theft Auto V (Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3, PC)
  8. Mortal Kombat X (PS4, Xbox One)
  9. NBA 2K15 (360, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, PC)
  10. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3, PC)
