NBA 2K14 is the best selling sports game in the U.S. on the next-gen consoles, PS4 and Xbox One. According to NPD, the game beat out FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, and NBA Live 14, all three made by EA Games.
NBA 2K14 was overall the top selling game on both consoles as well, and sixth best selling game when all console versions were added in, USA Today reports.
NBA 2K14 is outselling NBA 2K13 with just the next-gen versions of the game, which is a pleasant and surprising revelation for 2K Sports, they announced Friday.
"If you look at the current generation and the next-generation [of NBA 2K14] together, we've actually sold in more units combined than we did last year on just the current generation," said Karl Slatoff, Take-Two President, reports PlayStation Lifestyle. "So you hear a lot in the industry right now about the problems that developers are having in the transition period and the risk that are associated with transition, which are all very true. But in our specific situations, we only have one game right now for next-gen. We're not seeing that."
2K's latest game has gotten rave reviews, and has sold very well in both the next-gen and previous gen versions of the game.
"The PS3 and the 360 version and the PS4 and the Xbox One version are actually different games and with different development cycles behind them. So as a combined unit, we're actually seeing an increase over last year in terms of selling at this point. So we're not seeing… that pain in transition," he continued.
NBA 2K14 was released on Oct. 1 and arrived to the PS4 on Nov. 15 and the Xbox One on Nov. 22.
