Batman and Sony Crushing it in Game Sales

Batman Arkham Knight for PS4 was the best selling video game of June

The latest Rocksteady outing helped drive a 19% year-on-year surge in monthly software sales, and after just 12 days on sale during the tracked period became the second highest-selling release of 2015 behind Mortal Kombat X.

We also learned that game sales are up for the 4th month in a row, and that the PS4 has outsold the Xbox One in 16 of the 19 months each of those consoles have been on the market.

So basically, Sony is winning this generation of the “console wars” fairly handily. Microsoft still manages to get the odd exclusive here and there, but Sony’s running away with this race.
