Destiny: The Taken King Best Selling Title On PS Store In 2015

Star Wars Battlefront top during December.

Sony has released the PS Store charts for both December 2015, and the entirety of 2015. According to the chart Star Wars Battlefront was the best selling title during December, while Destiny: The Taken King managed to shift the most units through 2015, beating the likes of Call Of Duty: Black Ops III, Minecraft, and FIFA 16. However, Minecraft was the best seller on Vita and PS3 for the year.

When it comes to Destiny: The Taken King it does appear the figures for the original Destiny have been lumped in too, since you can’t purchase that alone on the store any more.

  1. It’s also a little misleading as you would think that with the amount of numbers involved to take the top spot, people would still be regularly playing it. Yet when I look, there’s barely anyone.

    Myself, Pixel & Toutski still get on to get nightfalls etc done of a week & you are lucky if you perhaps see one other person playing? At least from my list of friends anyway.

    Was just saying last night that they need something significant to draw people in as even I am finding difficulty in being urged to get on when I have spare time.

    • Picked up the full Destiny bundle over Christmas for 25 squid.

      Haven’t tried any raids yet & currently grinding my Light up (287 at present) – feel free to holler if you need to make numbers up Forrest. It’ll be nice to game with you again sir. :)

    • As much as I loved Destiny, the Pricing model and the habit of making all progress completely pointless turned me off in a big way.

      Want me to buy the new stuff? Then make it good and price it reasonably. Don’t make the old stuff irrelevant. They took a big wee-wee over all the time I put in, so I decided not to invest any more.

      Also, it turns out Warframe is a much better sci-fi shooter. And it’s free.

      • Yeah, I think a few people felt the same way, which probably led to the monetisation of things like emotes & a drip feed of new content every now & again in ‘events’ (such as the Halloween thing & sparrow racing), rather than paid for DLC. The thing is that if they are going that route, they really can’t afford to rest on their laurels as I only play one or two days a week & I am already feeling like I am running out of things to do & draw me back. There needs to be decent stuff going on that has some point to completing it for people who have been in since the start.

        Sure, I have quests from TTK I could complete (mostly multiplayer stuff tbh), but there needs to be a point to me doing so, rather than just obtaining a new weapon that’s likely just going to gather dust in the vault.

        I do still love the game & personally think that they got the gameplay spot on (even if other aspects weren’t), but if they want to get more people involved again, they need something big that doesn’t detract from what’s already there, or as you say, make other stuff irrelevant.

        Although I have to say that I totally get why they chose to phase out stuff from year one (i.e. make it less attractive to use), as I don’t think that my loadout changed much from Fatebringer/Black Hammer/Gjallarhorn each time I played.

  2. It’s interesting how all the lists (even PS4) contain a significant number of releases outside of 2015. I suspect store pricing means older games that are on sale make the charts as they shift big numbers.

    Curious that digital only games are a minority in all of this too…
