According to Sony's most recent NPD, the PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller has been deemed the all-time best-selling gamepad when just looking at dollar sales. This doesn't mean that the controller has sold the most units ever, this just means that Sony has singled out the standard black controller while not taking into account the other consoles controllers that its up against.
