Injustice: Gods Among Us is the best-selling game of April 2013

injustice-boxartAccording to The NPD Group’s accounting of the best-selling games from April 2013, NetherRealm Studios’ Injustice: Gods Among Us delivered a superhero-sized punch to the competition last month. The Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U fighter zoomed into the top spot, ahead of another April release, Deep Silver’s Dead Island: Riptide. Other new releases were mostly shut out of the top ten, but Defiance, an MMO shooter based on the Syfy show of the same name, managed to make it to the fifth spot.

Bioshock Infinite continues to sell strong, rounding out the top three, and a pair of 3DS-exclusive games scared up spots in the top ten: Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon (#6) and Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins (#9).

The full top ten list for April 2013 can be found right here:

1. Injustice: Gods Among Us (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U)
2. Dead Island: Riptide (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
3. Bioshock Infinite (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
4. Call of Duty: Black Ops II (Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii U)
5. Defiance (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
6. Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon (3DS)
7. NBA 2K13 (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, Wii U, PSP, PC)
8. Skylanders Giants (Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, 3DS, Wii U)
9. Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins (3DS)
10. MLB 13: The Show (PS3, Vita)

PSN Today: Defiance, GTA Vice City Stories, GTA Liberty City Stories, More

psnlogoToday’s PlayStation Store update has good timing. Not only is it available before the sun goes down on the east coast, but two new additions to the store sync up nicely with today’s Grand Theft Auto V cover art reveal.

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories are two forgotten PS2 classics (especially since they began life as PSP games), but today they’re officially PS2 Classics as Sony has added the pair to the PlayStation Store.

They’re joined by Trion Worlds’ multiplayer shooter Defiance, PSN shooter Ion Assault HD, and the Capcom Arcade Cabinet: 1985-2 Pack (which includes Commando, The Speed Rumbler, and Savage Bees).

More details on all of these games can be found after the break and a complete listing of this week’s new game add-ons can be found, as always, at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

New Releases: Defiance, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, More


With PAX East and GDC behind us, we head into another slow Spring month of new releases.

The first week of April begins with Trion Worlds’ Defiance for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. The alien-blasting game is a side-story companion to the Syfy show of the same name. This week also sees the release of Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The enhanced special edition of Ryu Hayabusa’s third adventure was previously only available for the Wii U.

Also available this week is a trio of new PC games (Cities In Motion 2, Sacra Terra: Kiss of Death, and The Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes) as well as Super Black Bass 3D on the 3DS.

And that’s it.
