In what should come as a total surprise, Mortal Kombat X has topped NPD Group's sales rankings for video games at the retail level in the US for the first half of 2015. Considering the #2 title is Grand Theft Auto V, this is a huge scoop for Warner Bros., especially after the huge issues surrounding Batman: Arkham Knight.




Most of the games on the chart will be games you either own, or have heard of, but it's quite surprising to see Mortal Kombat X top the list. Here's the top 10 sales rankings for video games at retail for the first half of 2015, according to NPD Group:


  • 1. Mortal Kombat X (Publisher: Warner Bros.)
  • 2. Grand Theft Auto V (Publisher: Take-Two Interactive Software)
  • 3. Battlefield Hardline (Publisher: Electronic Arts)
  • 4. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (Publisher: Activision)
  • 5. Minecraft (Publisher: Microsoft)
  • 6. Batman: Arkham Knight (Publisher: Warner Bros.)
  • 7. Dying Light (Publisher: Warner Bros.)
  • 8. NBA 2K15 (Publisher: Take-Two Interactive Software)
