Raru's Best Selling Video Games for 2016 19 Dec 2016

Header

On single SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) sales Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration (PS4) occupies the no. 1 sales spot for 2016 based on units sold. The unit numbers difference between Tomb Raider and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (PS4) is just a few units though. It really was a very close fought battle between Nathan Drake and Lara Croft this year.

Based on combined Edition's and Format sales, the overall winner of 2016 is Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (PS4), as we had predicted six months ago already.

If we had to combine the sales of Pokémon Moon (3DS) & Pokémon Sun (3DS) it would be the overall top selling game franchise for 2016.

The Top 50 Game Titles for the year platform split is: 31 x PS4's Games, followed by 8 x PC Games, 6 x 3DS Games, 3 x Wii U Games & 2 x Xbox One Games.

With 2017 already shaping up as another exciting gaming year, we wish everyone Happy Gaming for the rest of 2016. See you all again in the New Year.
