Editorial: 5 Best Selling PS4 Games Throughout 2017

For some people, PS4 gaming is a great way to relax, have some fun, kill some time or simply get rid of a bit of bottled up stress. For others, PS4 gaming is a much more serious business. 2017 has proven to be an excellent year for gaming industries. Plenty of great games and game developers made great success with the launch of new games and with high sales figures for older games. While the exact budget of games and gaming companies is unclear, it is quite easy to conclude that the bestselling PS4 games in 2017 did contribute to great success for these businesses.

Talking about business success, Max Polyakov‘s EOS & Noosphere have also made certain progress in the niche. Max Polyakov, the founder of many successful companies like IT Ukraine, HitDynamics and more, recently visited the first FAI international drone conference that took place in Switzerland. During the conference, plenty of topics with regard to the role of drones in different sectors were discussed. Max Polyakov revealed that civilian drones have made pretty incredible success when it came to advances in data acquisition and analytics for earth imaging. It is probably only a matter of time before civilian drones will be developed into much more than a practical solution for agriculture and security. Pretty soon drones could be the next big thing in gaming and civilian use across the globe could be contributing to a whole lot of air traffic. Unfortunately drones aren’t a big thing in gaming yet, but it would fit right in with the emergence of VR on systems like the PS4.

While we wait to see the changes drones bring to society as well as entertainment industries, it is undoubtedly great to enjoy a good game or two on your PS4, or follow the trends in popular gaming to see what can tide you over while you wait to get your hands on your very own drone. Here are the bestselling PS4 games in 2017.

Call of Duty: WWII

Call of Duty: WWII is at the top of 2017 bestselling PS4 games. The game racked in $1 billion in sales across the globe and is the bestselling game in the US.

Destiny 2

Destiny 2 became a bestselling game just one month after launching. The game did eventually become the second highest selling game by the end of 2017, and this sequel quickly outsold the 2014 Destiny version.

NBA 2K18

The third top seller of PS4 games is NBA 2K18. This game had some pretty impressive sales in the first few months, but the sales did eventually calm down landing the game an excellent 3rd spot on the list of top selling 2017 games.

Madden NFL 18

Madden NFL 18 sold 938 000 units in the first week of launch. The football game is much enjoyed and is the fourth bestseller for 2017.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands

At number five we have Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands. The combat game did tremendously well and outshone a lot of other top sellers like The Legend of Zelda, NBA 2K17, and Final Fantasy XV
The results of these game sales could have been very different if it wasn’t for a massive scandal surrounding the game Star Wars: Battlefront II or if digital game sales for Zelda were also included, but these top five bestselling PS4 games certainly did pretty well.
