USA NPD April 2019 PlayStation 4 PS4 Days Gone

Days Gone secured the seventh biggest Sony-published debut in US history, but still couldn’t stop the Mortal Kombat 11 juggernaut, which topped the respective sales charts for all four formats it released on. According to NPD data, the brutal brawler is already the second best-selling title of 2019 in America, despite only being available for a handful of the tracked period’s days.

There’s plenty for Bend Studio to be proud of, however, as Deacon St John's inaugural adventure is already the developer’s best-selling game of all-time in terms of revenue. The platform holder can be equally proud of MLB The Show 19, which finished third in the April 2019 sales chart, and continues to be the best-selling entry in the franchise on a time-aligned basis.

As anticipated, the Nintendo Switch once again dominated hardware sales, with no indication of how the PlayStation 4 fared in comparison. Unless there are any price adjustments, we really can’t see Sony’s console winning back its crown this year, so the Japanese giant may have to settle for second place temporarily. Of course, it’ll be eager to take back the throne when the PS5 drops.
