All Articles: WWE 2K18

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, Assassin’s Creed Origins, and Super Mario Odyssey are October 2017’s best-selling games

A northeastern cold snap proves that Fall is all… as does the massive number of new releases that cracked The NPD Group’s list of best-selling games from October 2017. WB Games’s Middle-Earth: Shadow of War lead the way at #1, but it was closely followed by Assassin’s Creed Origins at #2, Super Mario Odyssey at #3, and South Park: The Fractured But Whole at #4.

Nintendo actually had a huge month, placing four titles in the Top 20 (The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (#15), Mario Kart 8 (#16), and Fire Emblem Warriors (#17) were the others), as well as owning the top two hardware platforms. However, GamesIndustry.biz is reporting that overall industry sales still dropped 11% versus October 2016 to $825 million:

With interest in the Switch and the Super NES Classic still sky-high, Nintendo hardware managed to account for two-thirds of the hardware sales generated. That being said, NPD noted that Sony’s PlayStation 4 is still the best-selling hardware platform year-to-date. Furthermore, in the accessories category, the black DualShock 4 wireless controller was both the best-selling accessory of October, and the best-selling accessory year-to-date.

The complete Top 20 from October 2017 can be found after the break. (more…)

Gran Turismo Sport, WWE 2K18, Jackbox Party Pack 4, more added to PS Store

Get ready to go on a wild ride with friends of all stripes in this week’s PlayStation Store update.

To start things off, Sony will launch the first online-focused entry in the Gran Turismo franchise, Gran Turismo Sport. 2K Games will offer up their own knockdown-dragout clash for the PS4 this week with the release of WWE 2K18. However, for the true cutthroat competitor, there’s The Jackbox Party Pack 4, the latest party game compilation from Jackbox Games.

Two very different sets of friends round out the rest of the PlayStation Store update. The South Park gang will tackle superhero franchises in South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and Deck Nine will continue the story of Life Is Strange: Before the Storm in Episode 2: Brave New World.

New Retail Releases: WWE 2K18, Gran Turismo Sport, Fire Emblem Warriors, More

It’s impossible to say that a single genre is representative of “video games” in 2017, and this grab bag approach is n full display in this week’s new retail releases report.

2K Games will launch their latest wrestling sim, WWE 2K18, for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Sony will follow that up with their simulation, Gran Turismo Sport, an online-focused racer for the PS4.

However, Nintendo is taking the opposite tack and launching Fire Emblem Warriors, a swords-and-sorcery mashup of the franchise’s entire history for the Switch and New 3DS. The crazy kids from South Park will also march into stores this week in South Park: The Fractured But Whole for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. And speaking of RPGs, Atlus will release Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond The Myth for the 3DS.
