‘Dying Light’ Was the Best-Selling Game for January

The NPD Group has revealed some promising stats for last month, which saw the PS4 reclaim the top spot as the best-selling console, selling an impressive 18.5 million systems. Hardware sales might have been down, but I doubt anyone at Sony is shedding a tear about that right now. Also worth noting is Techland’s open-world horror game Dying Light, which beat out Grand Theft Auto V to claim the top spot last month.

This is obviously great news for horror fans — and Dying Light deserves to do well — but it’s made even more impressive since it’s exclusively a current-gen title.

This is the second major horror release of the year to exceed expectations, after the Resident Evil remaster broke a couple records, becoming Capcom’s fastest-selling digital title ever. It will be interesting to see how Dead Island 2 fares, since it’ll also come to the PS3 and Xbox 360.

    Dying Light is absolutely the most fun Ive had killing zombies in a 3d environment. I probably put 20 hours in just running around torturing zombies. At some point I approached a group of 15-20 zoms, I cut all their legs off and just watched the crawl around.

    Great news hopefully Techland has a sequel in mind, and honestly well deserved for Dying Light, I love the game and concept so this is not a surprise to me I actually convinced 3 of my co worker’s to buy it so we can play together and I convinced them how much fun this game is and they all 3 bought it and now we play online together.
