Gamers are a passionate bunch in the way that they love their games–and they can be very competitive about it.
In the spirit of competitiveness, fans of the recently-released “Assassin’s Creed Syndicate” may rejoice because their favorite game beat other well-loved games in the market. According to GameSpot, “Assassin’s Creed Syndicate” was the top seller for PlayStation 4 (PS4) during the month of October. This means that the game surpassed others in the market, including “Uncharted: The Nathan Drake collection” which is Sony’s own release.
Examiner highlights that “Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection” being surpassed by “Assassin’s Creed Syndicate” is a quite an achievement because “Uncharted” has been ahead in the market–being released on October 7 while “Creed” was just released on October 23.
However, it must be noted that “Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate’s” number one spot as bestselling game on PS4 for the month of October is only true for North America. PlayStation Lifestyle shares a breakdown of data in bestselling PS4 games for both North America and Europe.
In the article’s breakdown, North American data suggests that “Assassin’s Creed Syndicate” is top 1 followed by “Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection”, “NBA 2K16”, “Destiny” and “Minecraft: Story Mode–Episode 1: The Order of the Stone”.
Meanwhile, data from the Europe chart suggests a stark contrast. “Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection” is number one for European gamers followed by “Destiny: The Taken King”, “FIFA 16”, “Rocket League” and “Assassin’s Creed Syndicate” only landing at the fifth spot.
Data from these reports suggest that “Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection” afterall exceeds “Assassin’s Creed Syndicate” when data from North American and European gamers are combined. Nevertheless, no matter what the ranking, one thing is for sure: both new releases have performed well in their first month.
