A very interesting fun-fact. Seeing these software trends is fascinating, especially this late in the gen.
Iv'e only included games over 70 on metacritic to only showcase quality offerings.
EDIT: The Sony camp has requested I also include games rated below 70. So be it. We shall see if Halo 4 can outsell that as well :) This thread just became a lot more interesting!

System defining games (over 70 on metacritic) not on the other. IMO these are the system sellers that matter. No amount of PS4 selling can take this away.
2013: Forza 5, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct > Killzone Shadowfall
2014: Titanfall, Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark, Forza Horizon 2, Master Chief Collection > Infamous SF, Drive Club, Little Big Planet 3, Last of Us (IMO lacking in content compared to MCC).
2015: Rare Replay, Gears Ultimate, Forza Motorsport 6, Halo 5 > Bloodborne, Nathan Drake Collection, God of War 3 Remastered
