NPD (USA monthly sales data for March 2017):

NPD stopped giving exact sales numbers.

NPD Sales Results For March 2017 [Up2: Year to date charts, platform specific charts] #1
Overall Results:

- March retail game sales are up 24% year over year.
- Hardware was up 91% year over year.
- Console and Handheld game sales were up 5% year over year.
- Physical and Steam PC software sales (for AAA games from participating publishers) were down 25% year over year.


USA Software:

March 2017:

1. Tom Clancy's Ghost Record: Wildlands ** (Ubisoft) - Best Ghost Recon debut ever, #2 Tom Clancy title debut behind The Division.
2. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild * (Nintendo) - Over 900K physical on Switch. However, keep in mind that these are ranked by dollar sales, not units, and that this spot represents Switch + Wii U.
3. Mass Effect: Andromeda ** (Electronic Arts) - Second best Mass Effect debut ever, after Mass Effect 3 (which sold 1.3 million in its first month).
4. Horizon: Zero Dawn * (Sony) - Best Guerrilla debut ever, selling twice as much as their second highest debut, Killzone 2. That should put it around 648K.
5. MLB 17: The Show * (Sony)
6. Grand Theft Auto V ** (Take-Two)
7. For Honor ** (Ubisoft)
8. NBA 2K17 (Take-Two)
9. Nier: Automata (Square Enix)
10. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Activision Blizzard)

13. 1-2 Switch * (Nintendo) - 19% attach rate to the Switch.
14. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (Capcom)
15. Overwatch ** (Activision Blizzard)
16. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege ** (Ubisoft)
17. Super Bomberman R * (Konami)

19. Lego Worlds (Warner Bros)
20. Madden NFL 17 (Electronic Arts)
* No Digital Sales

Notes:
- Platform specific charts are below.
- Ghost Recon: Wildlands is the best ever Ghost Recon launch, and second best Tom Clancy launch after The Division.
- In reference to franchises: "Zelda is the top-selling property of all time within the Adventure super genre, selling 54 percent more revenue than the next best-selling franchise, Resident Evil."

- Zelda sold over 900K physical units on Switch.
- Horizon was the best Guerrilla debut ever, selling twice as much as their second best debut, Killzone 2.
- 1-2 Switch made the top 20 best-selling games chart with an attach rate of 19 percent.
- Starting next month, Microsoft's digital sales will be reflected in the software charts.
- We'll get a full year to date chart soon, but Ghost Recon is #1 for the year, For Honor is #2, and Zelda is #3 combining Switch and Wii U versions.


Hardware:

Switch: #1

Notes:
- "In this debut month (month 1), the Nintendo Switch sold 31K more units than previous best-selling Nintendo month-1 platform, the Game Boy Advanced, which released back in June 2001. The two Nintendo Switch SKUs, the 32GB Gray Joy-Con, followed by the 32GB Neon Red/Blue Joy-Con, were the best-selling systems for the month."
- "March 2017 will go down in history books as the month Nintendo broke records.The Nintendo Switch had the biggest hardware launch for a Nintendo platform and the second biggest launch for any video game platform since 1995, the time NPD began tracking this category."

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild (Nintendo Switch version) has outsold the console itself in the USA.

People that cannot find a Nintendo Switch in stock are buying Zelda in anticipation of buying the console. Smiling Face With Open Mouth

The Special and Master Editions of BotW are very limited prints.

Probably less than 10,000 - 50,000 made available to buy.
I was able to get the Special Edition but not the Master Edition and I tried pre-order right when it was made available to pre-order.
Even the Special Edition was very limited in supply.

I think Breath of the Wild on Switch outsold the console itself due to pre-order incentives. Amazon US and Amazon Canada have 20% discounts and there other other retailer promotions (EB Games/Gamestop trade-ins, old Best Buy pre-order promos etc). Then we can account special/collectors editions + excited Nintendo fans that picked up the game despite the system being sold out.

I just recently finished The Last Guardian, and it was quite the experience. Not gonna lie, but I almost cried at the end...

Still can't believe The Last Guardian actually came out, and that I bought it, played it, finished it... More please.

Totally forgot that game came out. I suppose that's one more I can add to the list of PS4 exclusives to grab in the future. Was it anything like SOTC?

Totally forgot that game came out. I suppose that's one more I can add to the list of PS4 exclusives to grab in the future. Was it anything like SOTC?
Well The Last Guardian was developed by the same people who made Ico and SOTC meaning that there will be similarities in gameplay with the previous titles. Despite having the same mysterious vibes and annoying camera quirks that all of the games are known for, TLG still feels fresh and different.

Crazy how Ico, SOTC, and The Last Guardian have all made me feel sad yet happy in the ending.
