NPD has released the sales results for the month of June 2015, which has seen the PS4 once again leading in hardware sales. In software Batman Arkham Knight rose to the top, partly aiding to the sales of the PlayStation 4 with its hardware bundle.
“Sales of Arkham Knight slightly exceeded October 2011 sales of Batman: Arkham City, which is remarkable considering the difference in hardware install bases,” said NPD analyst Liam Callahan.
“If sales were included from hardware bundles, Arkham Knight is the best-selling game of 2015 so far,” said the NPD analyst.

Batman Arkham Knight, is an extraordinary game, and worthy of all the praise and sales it has enjoyed. Even if the plagued PC version has stigmatized a rather stellar launch, it will hopefully be remedied soon enough as not to affect what could be one of, if not the best games of 2015.
