While this really shouldn’t be much of a surprise, Mortal Kombat X took the number one spot for sales for the month of April. Being one of the few major releases in that month it was a safe bet to assume it would do that.
That doesn’t take away from the popularity of the game however. Mortal Kombat X has been a hit on YouTube lately with many of the famous gameplay video providers. With the recent addition of Friday the 13’s Jason and Predator as combatants the game just got more interesting.
The competition for the month was full of popular games however they we’re also mostly games that had already been out for a while. Overall software sales were on the rise a full 13% rising to $256.7 million compared to the same period last year. The Xbox One even passed the PS4 in hardware sales with 12% in overall growth for hardware. Good month for everyone involved.
